by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2010
GetRaised.com is a new online service that helps people get raises by determining if they are underpaid and then giving them the tools to do something about it.

In today's tough job market, you must...
What You Should Know Before Asking For A Raise
by Dan King - Oct, 2010
Now that the economy is starting to simmer and hiring is heating up, you're getting fidgety. You’ve worked your butt off for months; dodged repeated rounds of layoffs and put in double-time to keep the corporate wheels turning. You've stuck it out -- and now it's time for your boss to "put his money where his mouth is.” If you're going to stick around any longer, you want a raise. Before you corner your boss and demand...
Don’t wimp out on salary negotiation
by Elizabeth Freedman - Sep, 2010
Can you negotiate salary (or even ask for a raise) in this economy? You can and you should. Here’s the real question: Will you? Because salary negotiation is tough, many of us are using the economy as a reason to avoid it altogether. The bottom line: Don’t be one of these people. No matter how badly you want the job, have been out of work, or would be thrilled to have any kind of salary at all, those feelings will soon pass...
Salary Negotiation Tips
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
When it comes to compensation, for many, more is always better. Yet, a vast majority of job seekers -- under the mistaken assumption that they don’t have a say on the salary negotiation table -- sheepishly accept the first offer that comes their way. It is true that a few industries, companies, and roles are not suitable candidates for the negotiation process, but universalizing such an assumption would be incorrect. Tradition...
How to Make your Case for a Promotion
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Want a promotion? Let me guess the response. I estimate that over 80% to 90% of individuals never ask for a promotion. Worse still, of those who do, over 95% don’t plan well enough before pitching for it. Considering what’s at stake, it is surprising that so many individuals don’t have a robust plan to achieve their career goals. If you have repeatedly lost out on a promotion to an “unworthy” contestant, it may be time to...

How Much Is Too Much To Ask For When It Comes To Your Career?
by Elizabeth Freedman - May, 2010
We’ve been told to be assertive, and ask for what we want – but do we cross the line when it comes to our careers? As a former fundraiser, I was taught to ask for the money – we can’t expect people to read our minds or to hand over their checkbooks. And, I’ve seen enough ‘Oprah’ by now to know that, no, I can’t expect my husband to know that, yes, I really did want to get a huge bouquet of flowers for Valentine’s Day, not ju...
Negotiating is an Art
by Debra Wheatman - Apr, 2010
Negotiating is an art, no doubt. Done correctly it will lead to victory. Done poorly it could lead to failure. When it comes to negotiating salary and other benefits in the workplace, nothing makes people more uncomfortable. He who talks money first loses as they say. Why? Well, it’s because the minute you reference your previous salary, the other side has a distinct advantage. If you reference a desired salary, you may put...
Promotions Are on The Rise - That's Good News For Everyone
by Robin Ryan - Apr, 2010
Hiring opportunities exist, but it's not the unemployed that employers are looking at first - it's their own employees. Professionals, managers, and executives are finding that the doors are open if they want to move up - internally, that is.
