Particular circumstances when to ask for a raise: 1. After completing a big project 2. When your manager is happy
One of the more successful ways we've seen people approach their managers about asking for a raise is to start with an email to schedule a time to discuss.
In the worst-case scenario, they say “no,” and that's ok. The simple request of asking for a raise is a huge step in the right direction to increasing your salary.
No manager wants to be the bad guy saying “No” to your raise, so find opportunities to work together to increase your salary to the industry standards.
