I haven’t been blogging for a bit, mainly because I’m bumbling around like a maniac figuring out how to get my Career Kitchen podcast off the ground. (Tech= not my friend.). The goal here is to provide you, dear reader, with more 360-degree career tips and advice. What do I mean by that? I want to help you with all aspects of your career, not just the transition piece I’ve mostly been focused on lately. I do a fair bit of work in many areas – salary negotiation, asking for a raise, leadership development and navigating the workplace, to name a few- and I want to make sure that’s a big part of what I’m bringing you each week.
And I thought- while I’m fumbling around learning how to edit a podcast (oh boy), let’s get started giving you the goods NOW.
I’m hosting a free live “Show Me How” call with Q&A on February 7th on #GettingtheRaise (details to register are here.) let’s start by giving you exactly what you need to make that call a working call and get moving toward your raise. In other words, I want you to have the right information in front of you so you can use what we’re talking about on the call to get to implementing and ACTION right away!
So, what do you need to hit the ground running on TUESDAY with me?!
So to get a good sense for the raise you want to ask for, let’s take a quick example for the median salary piece of this, since I know that can be confusing and nebulous Let’s say you’re a marketing manager in NYC with 5 years of experience in consumer products. I went through the payscale.com and got the report in this picture. This means that 50% of people make less than $86,110 and 50% of people in this profile make more than $86,110. And it looks like the entire range is $61k-$120k. While that’s quite a gap, you do know what other data points to gather to research what you’re worth in the market from the first bullet point above!
