I’m planning on asking for a raise for the first time in my career and I want to list out my accomplishments but I don’t want to seem cocky about it. (cont’d)

I did this a few months ago. I get nervous in that kind of setting so I literally printed out a list of my accomplishments (along with a couple things that I wanted to continue to improve) and handed it out to my managers during a meeting I setup for us all. I got lots of praise for the boldness and got the raise (and promotion) a couple weeks later.

It was uncomfortable but 100% worth it! Go for it and let us know how it goes:)

Same but I actually prepared a deck. 🤣 It included comp salaries (I was severely underpaid) and my accomplishments and my history with the department (a series of promotions without raises 🙄) and presented it over lunch when I got my review. I was asking for a 40% raise and got almost all I asked for. Good luck!!

It’s not cocky to be honest. Be proud of yourself, you’re working hard!

Say something like, “I wanted to talk to you about getting a raise. Over the last year I’ve done X, Y, and Z, on [accounts/projects] and based on that I’d like a raise to reflect the work I’ve been doing for the agency. What do you think about [number]?”

I also don’t know if I should ask for a range in salary or a specific amount. I know what my peers make, so I have an accurate amount in mind.

Ask for an amount, negotiate from there assuming they don’t say no.

Recents accepted a verbal offer from a recruiter for a promotion to a lead position. When I receiver the offer letter it was for $1 less per hour than what was stated over the phone. I went back to the recruiter and told him this and was told “If I did say that amount that isn’t correct” and that the calls weren’t recorded. I’ve already been waiting a month for an offer and I know it’s a small dollar amount of a difference but I can’t help but feel like I was lied to. Would you withdraw or no?
