08 Aug 09 Earn Yourself A Raise

Everyone would like to make more money at their job, because there really is no such thing as making enough money, or having extra cash.  The more money you have, the better your overall quality of life can be, or at least that’s what most of us have come to believe in a consumer driven economy.  So logically, finding a way to increase your earnings is paramount to your overall fulfillment right?  Probably not, but here are a few tips to earn more money at your job regardless.

First off, establish a good work record.  Don’t take too many sick days, in fact stay away from taking any unless absolutely necessary, for at least a three to four month period at your job.  This establishes you as a dependable worker, committed to the company.  Also you appear willing to get the job done for the reasons that you enjoy what you do.  If you’re not always trying to leave the workplace, you look more likely to care what you are doing.  After you’ve gone a good long while without taking any days off, you can make your case for getting a raise with your commitment as a very good reflection on why you deserve more pay.

Also, take advantage of as many overtime opportunities as possible, including days that your boss may ask you to work that don’t fall into your normal agreement.  This shows you to be a dependable worker, and beyond what you can get in the long run, will put some quick cash in your pocket as well.  Plus after you’ve established your loyalty you can make a good case for yourself to get that raise.

Make sure you keep accurate records of agreements made with your supervisors, so that you can show that you always achieve your goals, and that as often as possible you push past their expectations to deliver the best work possible.  Nothing makes a case for why you should be paid more, than doing the job the best that you can, and being able to back that fact up with data.
