Should I Ask for a Raise?
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     You've been working at your job for about a year now. You really like it. Your boss seems to like the work you've done. Should you ask for a raise? It would be nice to make more money. Before you go see your boss, make sure you're prepared. Here are the steps you should follow.
 
2     The first thing you should do is find out your company's policy on giving raises. Look in the employee handbook. Or talk with someone in human resources. If you feel you meet the requirements, go to the next step.
 
3     Make a list of all the things you've done well. Have you learned extra skills? Are you the fastest or most efficient at doing something? Have you saved the company time or money?
