Yes, you can get a raise. There are specific phrases and techniques you can use to get one — even in this economy.
My name is Ramit Sethi and I’m a New York Times best-selling author. I’ve helped my friends and students negotiate results like this:
A friend of mine recommended I read your book because I am looking for a job. I read your chapter on negotiating a higher salary. The next day I scheduled a phone call with the hiring manager and I was able to get an extra $4,500 in 15 minutes of negotiating! Your advice was extremely helpful, thank you.”
I‘m proud to say that I’ve reached my goal of making into the six figures by the age of 30. I never EVER expected that, especially since my starting salary six years ago was $25,000. (In NYC where a cardboard box on the sidewalk costs more than that per year).”
I have been working for the same salary & bonus for the last 3 years! I watched the negotiation videos… and after a day with my boss – the CTO of our company, I got a 17% total increase ($13,000) – and that’s not even with a promotion. Thanks for what you do – keep it coming…”
Think about your co-workers. Some of them are being paid far more than you are — simply because they know how to negotiate. It’s like the airline passenger sitting next to you who paid 50% of your price…only a simple $5,000 raise can be worth over $1 million in your lifetime.
Most Americans are horrible at negotiating and say things like, “I could never get a raise in this economy” (code for, ‘I’m afraid to negotiate because I don’t know what to say’), or “Yeah, I really should do that” (code for, ‘I will never do that’).
Ignore average performers. If you are a top performer, you may be able negotiate your salary. It WILL take work. It WILL challenge you.
But in the end, if you’re already a top performer, shouldn’t you be compensated like one?
