Happen To Your Career - Meaningful Work, Career Change, & Career Design

Listen to this before you ask for a raise! If you feel like you’re not being paid what you’re worth, it’s definitely time to ask for a raise. But there are a few things you need to know if you want the ask to go smoothly and successfully. Unfortunately, nobody teaches you how to raise your income — we don’t focus on it in schools and we certainly don’t learn about it at our jobs (at least not the easy way).

In this episode, Scott explains what you need to do before you ask for a raise, how to approach your boss with your ask, and how to make your request a win-win for you and your organization.

What you’ll learn

  • How to clearly communicate your value and contributions to make it easier for your boss to consider and approve a raise.
  • How to build a foundation with your employer that sets the stage to receive a raise
  • What to say when you approach your boss for a raise (and what to say if they initially say no!)

But then comes a huge dilemma we see all the time — in desperation to escape your current situation, you jump into a new role that's just as bad as the one before.

So, how do you avoid desperation in your job search and find a new role that adds to your life instead of draining it?

That's where Cheri found herself. You’ll hear how she went from trying to get out of a job that was making her miserable, to being so sure about what she wanted as the next step of her career that she turned down roles that seemed great but didn’t align with her ideal career… until she found it!

What you’ll learn

  • How to recognize when a job is negatively impacting your life.
  • Strategies for making thoughtful and intentional career decisions.
  • Tips for avoiding desperation in your job search.
