It’s been a year since you’ve had a salary increase.

You’re not certain where the business stands right now when it comes to wage increases… after all, we’re in the middle of a global pandemic.

You’ve been debating, what’s next in my career journey?

You’re not quite ready to make a move and you’re feeling antsy in your current job.

You know your worth and all that you bring to your position, the department and the organization.

You’re thinking…“maybe before I begin to look for other opportunities, it’s worth asking for a raise.”Check out below on where to begin.

Step 1 || Review your position description. What is still accurate? What do you need to add based on what you’ve taken on?⁣ ⁣

Step 2 || Rate yourself on each of your responsibilities from 1-5.⁣

  1. I haven’t done this before or I’m just getting started.
  2. I understand and I still require direction + instructions from my manager.
  3. My confidence waivers and at times I require support from my manager.
  4. I can do this with confidence on my own and I ask my manager for feedback to seek improvement.
  5. I’m an expert and I can train another person.

Step 3 || Write out your accomplishments from over the last year.

Step 4 || What do you want to take on over the next year? What do you envision your role to develop into?⁣ ⁣

Step 5 || Create your pitch using my free ‘PITCH’ template.
