When to ask for a raise - Deepstash

When to ask for a raise

  • Your employer posted strong quarterly earnings.
  • You had an excellent performance review.
  • You made a significant achievement. Ask for a raise right after a recent big win.
  • You find out you're being underpaid after researching your market value.
  • You took on more job responsibilities and establish a track record of delivering excellent work.
  • You received a job offer from another company.
  • You've just hit the one-year mark. Assuming you've delivered great work over the past year, you're in a good position to ask for a raise.
  • You received a promotion. Ask your boss if your new title comes with a raise.
