How to ask for a raise at the chief
Remember, a large part of success depends on properly chosen time and time for conversation. For example, psychologists do not recommend to contact the authorities in the first half of the day, because in this period the employer is the most busy work. Best to approach him after dinner, when things will be much less, and the mood, after a meal improves.
One should not approach the boss, if you not long ago failed any important job or if the employer for several days is in a bad mood. It is quite another thing if you by their actions proved their necessity for the company, or the chief suddenly became cheerful and complacent.
Before asking for a raise, you must prepare a detailed story about their labor feats. For this you can even make a list in which the points will be outlined when the company's business (thanks to you) is much improved. Remember, ask for a raise without a special motivation quite silly. To achieve a positive result, you need to prove to the authorities that the more power you get, the more benefits I can bring to the enterprise.
The requested increase is necessary to make so that the employer had no opportunity to challenge you. It is likely that the chief, as a veiled refusal, will use trivial for this case excuses, promised the position to another employee, there is no possibility to increase the salary, etc. Based on this, you need to think in advance the answers to these excuses. It is required to consider not only the character of the chef, but his attitude to you personally.
The most important thing when talking with superiors – do not use blackmail. You need to show yourself intelligent, smart, sociable and experienced worker, but not a blackmailer, threatening to resign because of the failure of its requirements. The exception may be only in those cases where you have previously made a better offer and you are sure that you will be where to go in case of failure.
In any case, remember that failure is not a reason for depression. Perhaps the employer is really cannot promote you to the position. Ask the chef about the reasons of failure and determine what steps should be taken to subsequently go back to this conversation. Make together with the employer a list of goals to clearly understand what to strive for.
