The 5 Things You Need to Do to Get a Raise

If You're Looking for a Raise, Follow This Checklist

4. Write It Down

Sure, you do great work and you receive numerous accolades from the company. But unless you write down your successes, no one is going to remember them—and subsequently reward you for them.

So keep a log of your biggest accomplishments with the company. Maybe you were able to implement a new program that saves the company in time and money. Note your most noteworthy successes, and be prepared to share them with your boss when you ask for a raise.
