Gather as much factual information as you can from other employees, before deciding on what salary request you want to make. Industry-specific salary data can help you prove that you deserve a raise. Please consider your location when checking salary data, due to variable costs of living. Always begin by expressing genuine interest in your position and the organization, and offering to compromise on other areas, such as longer hours and travel. Be prepared to defend your reasons for a higher salary with meaningful, work-related benefits to the employer. The best time to use salary information to request a raise is at review time, or following a job interview, as that's when your employer is focused on your impact on the company.

It is sometimes more comfortable for employees to make an initial salary request in writing, and plan a face-to-face meeting later to iron out differences. You'll need to be assertive at this point even though you may feel vulnerable. Sometimes the employer will be surprised at your salary suggestion, but stand firm, but encourage them to think about it for a day or two. Don't rush the process simply because you feel uncomfortable making demands. The employer may be counting on your discomfort and use it to stall the negotiation.

There are other things you can ask for besides a higher salary. For example, benefits can add thousands of dollars to your compensation package. Traditional benefit packages include health insurance, paid vacation and sick days, but companies may offer further benefits such as child care, elder car, or use of company vehicles for family emergencies. Other benefits include disability and life insurance, retirement plans, and discounts on the company's products and services. Finally, some organizations may offer investment and stock options, relocation reimbursement, and tuition credits for continued education.
