What’s the best way to ask about a wage increase?
Present your concern calmly and clearly, back it up with your arguments and also express a concrete idea. A salary increase of between three and ten percent is quite realistic in such a negotiation. Above all: don’t let the wind blow your sails right away!
When can you ask for more salary?
New customers, more responsibility or a great professional success also mean a salary increase at the end of the month. This is where the demand for an increase in earnings is easiest or is planned by the boss from the outset. In principle, it is usual to renegotiate every 18 to 24 months.
How often should you get a raise?
Important: You should never ask for an interview every few months or after each successful project completion because of a salary increase. Employment law experts recommend asking about a salary negotiation at most every 18 to 24 months.
What is a normal raise?
Usually 3 to 5 percent more is given. Usually the maximum is 10 percent. Benjamin Michels’ team advises you to charge around 2 percent more than your optimal number. So you can act accommodating if your boss wants to negotiate you.
