You believe you deserve a raise, but is it what your boss is thinking? The following is article is how to ask for a salary increase.

Having yourself prepared for the task is the best way to ask for a salary increase. You have to think about any questions your boss might ask during this encounter. You have to remember that your boss probably hasn’t noticed all your hard work and it will be your job to let your boss know that.

You must remember that going on the pretence of asking for a salary increase because you do a great job is not enough as you were hired to do a great job from the start, and your boss wouldn’t want you around if you were just doing your job.
