I am always looking for great opportunities in life and to grow my soul. With that being said even after I get the job or jobs I worked so hard to get I am always still looking for a better jobs and to better myself. Usually after 90 days on the job if no raise I move to a better paying job, I take it as the universe was using that job to train me for something better. When employers question my short time on jobs or reason for leaving I say to better myself all body, mind and soul. Great job hunting to you all folks
Whether you’re looking for a job or have one now, the time will come when you understandably will want to make more money. So, when you feel the moment has arrived to ask for a raise; follow these steps to help make it happen!
1- Make a plan Decide when you will ask and whom you will speak with. If it’s not your boss then who should this discussion take place with? Timing is also important, if your boss is going through a particularly stressful week it might be better to ask at another time!
2- Know it’s ok to ask It doesn’t make you greedy or entitled, so don’t be nervous! Your manager has likely been through this many times before and he/she expects it to happen. Be strong in your ask and know this is what is best for you. If the answer is no, you didn’t do anything wrong. My suggestion would be to follow up and ask them what would be needed to earn a raise! This way you have something to work towards to make that possible. You will also know where you stand and why.
3- Share where you want to go Companies like to know that you are in it for the long haul. So, stop and think about where you see yourself in another year. What can you bring to the company during that time? What do you personally want to accomplish? This is the time to speak up about positive things you want to progress towards at the company.
4- Know your worth and the market It’s important to know how much you are being paid compared to the current market. Sites like GlassDoor and others will help with this! Simply search for your job title, area in which you live, and then look for jobs with similar responsibilities to the ones you have now. This will give you a baseline. If you feel you are being underpaid comparably save the data you have found. This will help you put together a number in your mind that is reasonable and on target with the current market for your position!
5- Map out what you’ve accomplished This goes hand in hand with your plan! Before you ask for a raise spend some time putting together a list of all the things you’ve done over the time you’ve been there (or since your last raise). Note how far you’ve grown from the beginning to end. Be sure to pay attention to any specific accomplishments and highlight these! This will help you prove to your manager that you not only have done great things but are continuing to achieve more.
Good luck : )

I've been at my job for 16 years and dont get the recognition or praise that I should. I have been overlooked and feel very disrespected. It's time for me to move on I think. I have been managing for the past 13 years and have put apps in and no return on anything. What's wrong with me? Or is it that none wants to deal with training me on something different
So the owner of my job is really impress with my work and abilities to multitask and go from cold bar to serving drinks. They finally got me on a regular schedule set. They told me they lover how quickly I get work done and satisfy customers to make them feel like their right at home. And also customer have been giving me outstanding reviews to the owner
I walked into my bosses office and told him that I need a raise.He told me that I make too much money. I reminded him that when he got the job he received a $100,000 a year raise which was not too shabby at all. He now makes $350,000 and I make $25,000. I told him that I want to make at least $250,000 dollars a year or else I will head to Harvard University and teach history and make $750,000 a year plus I will get a clothing allowance, travel allowance, etc. I told him that we should get this thing ironed out by January 1,2017. He told me that I am NUTS!!! To wit I replied only on Tuesday's. He called his attorney and told him what I wanted. His attorney said no. Give him 29,000 dollars a year. My attorney said that I should get at least $100,000 as Chairman Of The History Department at my school. If all else fails I will walk into his office and tell him that I have a new job at Harvard University teaching Modern European History, Modern German History and Modern Russian History along with World War I and World War II. I am also tempted to fly to Dubai and teach there. I know that they pay very well and its all tax-free. What do you think about this? Please let me know. Steven M. Fanale
So I've got a decent job. No benefits or anything and he hired me in the spot. Well, when he asked how much I want I froze and blurted out $10/hr. (Ridiculous on my part) well I found out the position was paying 14/hr. And now I'm kicking myself. .. another employee told me to just tell them I had another job offer but I really want to stay , and can they give me 14 , I dont know what to do or how to go about doing it, I've only been there a week, but they all really like me and I think I'm doing pretty good. Help!

My question is WHY ???. I can understand dept.training but orientation ? Please can someone explain.thanks
How should people turn jobs into careers? If you are currently employed, what are you doing to make sure that you have a 'bigger job' next year (either more money, more responsibility, different responsibility or whatever else your goals are).
In general, I am really interested in what other Jobcasers have to say about this - so I don't want to bias with my thoughts up front. But I will say that the first step is identifying what it is you want. If you don't articulate the goal to yourself then how will you get it?? This is a time in labor markets where you need to be your own Agent and take charge of your own career. Don't wait for someone in a corner office to chart your career path for you - you need to do it yourself.
That said - what do you think? How do you think about getting ahead - and what does that even mean for you anyways? #promotion #achievement #raise #ambition #success
