Respect goes a long way! Respectful dialogue is the key to getting what you want from your current job. Speak up assertively and make clear what you’re looking for – whether that be more money, growth opportunities or something else entirely. Then, invite an open conversation with employers so they may understand where you’re coming from, which could lead to achieving those career goals sooner than expected.
Are you letting your Employer know that you’re considering other opportunities if they don’t meet the salary or promotion expectations? Then make sure to be prepared to leave your job – because anything else may jeopardize your credibility and future chances at negotiation. Doing some research into current job markets and consulting a recruitment expert about what is achievable in terms of roles and salaries can give you an edge when it comes time to submit applications. Then you can take action and be informed about your options.
Proactively dialogue with your Employer is vital if you want to take control of your career and maximize job satisfaction. Effective communication allows both sides to understand expectations and reach mutually beneficial agreements – whether it’s a promotion or extra holiday time. And if the answer from management isn’t quite what you had hoped for? You can still use this information when looking elsewhere – knowing that at least you made an effort!
