3. Don’t Get Personal

When it comes to asking for more money, keep the reasoning as professional and work based as possible.

Your boss doesn’t need to know that you want to go on the holiday of a lifetime next year or you’ve been eyeing up a pair of Manolo Blahniks.2

All they need to know is that you are a hard worker who deserves to be getting paid more than you currently do.

It will be harder to deny you a raise if you help your boss to see that your work actually warrants it, rather than just to cover the costs of your outside life.
