Negotiate a raise at my current job

Kendra got $10,000 more

Kendra negotiated a $10,000 salary increase, extra vacation, and more

Kendra is a 30-something PR pro living in the midwest, and is made of awesomeness. Why? She became one of my favorite clients of all time with a combination of friendly and fierce, negotiating a killer compensation package when changing jobs.

VIDEO: HOW SHE DID IT

Like most job-seekers, Kendra was nervous about negotiating salary when offered a new job - especially when HR changed the role at the last minute. By using a few simple, proven techniques, she held her ground to earn what she was worth.

The result: A $7,000 increase in base salary, a $3,000 bonus, an extra week vacation, a later start date, and a performance review in six months. "I couldn't believe that it actually worked; I was so overjoyed."

Are you dramatically underpaid? Find your worth.

Looking to change jobs and get paid more? It all starts with knowing your value. Most job-seekers will take a quick look at Salary.com, Payscale, or Glassdoor. Those sites are a great place to start, but to truly earn what you deserve, you need to do more. I'll show you how.


Want to know the exact phrases to say when you get an offer? Hide your worth.

It might sound counter-intuitive, but a crucial step to earning more is NOT revealing your current salary -- on an application, in an online questionnaire, or when asked point blank. Stating a salary that is too low leaves money on the table, while guessing too high might offend the hiring manager, thus losing the offer. I'll teach you the exact phrases needed to turn the tables.

Marcy got a $15,000 raise

Marcy got a $15,000 raise and a new title

Marcy's story is a common one. As an office manager earning $60,000, she loved her job and her co-workers. But over a 2 year span, she took on a much greater amount of responsibility and was now "wearing many hats." With a big performance review coming up, she wanted advice in asking for a title and raise to match her current role.

Marcy got a $15,000 raise

READ HER STORY BELOW

Asking for a raise is much more than telling your boss, "I want more money." We crafted a unique gameplan, making sure Marcy felt comfortable and confident. First, we compiled analytical data, researching market trends for salaries, graphing out the percentage of time spent on key projects (and how that changed over time), and compiling her bottom-line financial impact ($1 million in client work and $50,000 saved by doing multiple jobs). Next, we hit on the emotional aspects, stressing how she made her boss' job easier, and how difficult it would be to replace 4 roles if she left.

The result? Marcy felt empowered and her review went just as planned. She was promoted from Manager to Director and received a 25% raise to $75,000.
