This entry was posted in Articles, Careers advice on by Lynn.

When was the last time your boss came over to your desk with a friendly smile and said: “Let’s talk about a pay rise“? For most employees, this is a rare occurrence – indeed it’s the stuff that dreams are made of. As a rule, it’s you who has to muster the courage to approach your boss and bring up this somewhat awkward subject. And that’s not the end of it. After all, they don’t call it ‘salary negotiations’ for nothing. A manager will seldom reward your courage and simply agree to your request. Xing-PayRise Instead, he or she will think up a host of good reasons why it’s a not a good time for a pay rise right now.  So there you sit, with two options ahead of you: One: you hide your dissatisfaction as best you can and resign yourself to the idea that there’ll be no extra money coming into your account any time soon.

Research has shown how crucial the first 10 – 40 seconds of your introduction are. 90% of people form their opinion about you within this time.  Besides, some experiments conducted by psychologists at Princeton University state a tenth of a second is enough for someone to form an impression of a stranger (and just based on their faces!).
