Think Ahead

As a self-motivated, conscientious worker, regular self-assessment is already a part of your routine. In addition to identifying your strengths and weaknesses, use this self-evaluation time to document--in writing--your achievements. Keep track of things such as:

  • Projects you’ve undertaken outside your job responsibilities.

  • Any money- or resource-saving ideas you’ve implemented.

  • Outstanding successes on any of your projects.

  • Training you’ve received, especially on your own time.

Plan towards the time when you’re going to ask for a raise. Setting a deadline for yourself will focus your efforts and give you added encouragement to keep working at a high level, even when there’s no immediate payoff.
