Asking your superior for your promotion and more money is probably one of the toughest thing to do. It does not help that Singapore society as a whole is not as open as the west when it comes to being vocal. But with yearly inflation raising faster than your salary increment, you only have 2 choices - ask for a promotion or pay raise or move on to greener pastures.
If you love what you are doing now, you will have to bite the bullet and speak up for what you desire! Here’s what you need to have in place to #ask4it:
- Evaluate The Financial Health Of Your Organisation
- Check Out Typical Salaries In Your Field
- Build Your Case
- Decide What Happens If You Get Turned Down?
- Set Up an Appointment to Talk to Your Boss
