Asking for a raise can be nerve racking and scary.You feel like you deserve one and you hope your employer does too. Here is one tip that has worked for me in the past:
Create the “win-win” situation for them and you!
Look at what thier priorities are and check them against yours. Research what they need for your position and can you fullfill that for them. Just saying you’ve been doing a good job and listing what you’ve accomplished is only part of it. Its your job to do a good job! But can you hlep them see that a raise is needed and that it will benefit them. You want to work 2 days from home. List the ways that will beneift the company. It could be cheaper for the company to have you telecommute. And THAT money could go in YOUR pocket!
