Hi Fishers,

What should be the generic positive answers of below questions by HR if we are switching within a year:

1. Why you are looking for a change within 1 year?
2. Why you are asking for more?

I need generic answers which we can use in any scenarios. There might be situation specific answers too.

Thanks in advance.

I’m about to ask for a raise. My biggest obstacle is that the $ I’m asking for will place me at a salary slightly higher than what a male associate Atty who is 3 years my senior makes. They’re going to try to cap me at his salary because they wont be able to rationalize me making more than him. My thought is - his decision to not ask to be paid a competitive salary has nothing to do with my worth. Thoughts? Advice?
