How to ask for a raise

Asking for a raise is an essential skill that can seem pretty daunting.

Although the prospect of more money seems appealing, the road to getting there isn’t as simple as it seems. According to a recent PayScale survey, 70% of people who ask for a raise receive one — but only 37% of workers ask. This is likely because of fear of rejection, lack of confidence if it’s your first time, or simply uncertainty of how to ask.

This guide from Self Lender walks you through how to successfully negotiate your salary and maximize your earnings — no matter your age or career stage.
