    How to Successfully Ask for a Raise

    Let’s face it: We all want to make more money. We might have ambition or want to take on more projects. Or we might want to be rewarded for loyalty or completing a big project on time and under budget.

    But having those difficult conversations of asking for a raise can be trickier. It’s hard to broach the concept of money with management, particularly because you might not be sure what your flexibility in numbers is or what kind of options exist. 

    One thing to do is research — determine what your profession pays people. You also need to figure out what’s stopping you from asking for a raise. For some people, they aren’t comfortable with the conversation. Some think they might be termed pushy. Or perhaps it's a lack of confidence or self-doubt, or maybe they just haven’t taken the time to sit down and reflect and analyze what they’ve accomplished in their role up to this point.

    So how can you get over your worries and instead ask for (and get) the raise you deserve? This blog offers some ideas.

    How To Turn Duties Into Accomplishments To Dazzle Hiring Managers

    How do you set yourself apart from other candidates going for the same job? Yes, the resume, cover letter, and the interview. But for now, we will focus on the resume.

    There are three primary reasons people get hired: you can make the company money, save the company money, or reduce the time for others. Secondary reasons for hiring people include having the relevant skills to do the job, being a cultural fit within the company, and having long-term potential to grow within the company, which all tie back to money in the end. 

    Many young professionals I come across have a resume full of tasks and duties that often reads like a job description, which in most cases isn't going to dazzle a hiring manager.

    Career Transition Case Study: From Farm Owner to Special Education Consultant

    Career Transition Case Study: From Farm Owner to Special Education Consultant

    "I have returned to being that driven and motivated woman I knew I was capable of being".

    When Melissa found us, she was very confused on where she should take her career next. She generally considered herself very motivated and professionally driven— someone who would never need a career coach— so this was a very uncomfortable place to find herself in! 

    Melissa had been an entrepreneur for 15 years working in the innovative farming industry and found it very difficult trying to figure out what to do next. She had some general ideas of career paths she was interested in exploring, had read books like What Color is Your Parachute and done career matching tests online, but they weren’t offering her meaningful insights relative to her particular situation with all of its moving parts.

    Prior to investing her time and energy and money into the program, Melissa’s biggest concern was whether she could justify the expense and that she would be rushed through the process just to get it done quickly. She was pleased to learn that she was able to co-create a pace that worked with her lifestyle.

    When Melissa did make the decision to invest herself, she was ready for a clean slate and to make a pivot into a completely different direction, but she was stuck figuring out how to translate skills gained from her past career into a completely unrelated field and felt daunted thinking she might need to start at square one. 

    Through the Career Clarity Method, we were able leverage her career successes, skills, specialities and talents towards something greater and identified what she wants to bring into her next role as well as those she doesn’t (even if she was good at it).

    In the Explore & Refine phase of the program we were able to tease apart the idea of a possible career verses what it might actually look like and we could blatantly see how much her values had changed over the years and realized how her next step needed to be one that supports her need for financial security and good work/life balance.

    Melissa shares, "The most impactful part about the process was discovering my core strengths and transferable skills and identifying my personal and professional values. I had been operating on a lot of outdated assumptions and the coaching process really helped by challenging my beliefs". 

    With a clear understanding of what she’s really good at naturally, we could now see which skills she’d need to develop moving forward. She shares, "because Kori didn’t know me in my past professional life she was able to offer really wise and unbiased insights. I have a solid foundation now and have returned to being that driven and motivated woman I knew I was capable of being".

    With her new found clarity, she decided going back to school to gain a Masters degree in Cognitive Science in Education as a step towards fulfilling her goal of working in Product Design to support diverse learners, something very near and dear to her heart.

    She applied to two Ivy League graduate schools and got accepted to both programs along with some funding! She simultaneously launched her own Special Ed consultancy company while pursuing her graduate studies to fill out gaps in her technical skill set, develop professional connections and create job opportunities in her new field.

    Melissa was finally able to find closure, acceptance and meaning in the value of her professional past. She says, "I needed to do this work in order to free up the mental and emotional bandwidth to figure out where I wanted to go next" and feels like she’s reconnected with her motivated self and she’s back on the path to a successful and fulfilling— and well paying— work.

    Melissa’s recommendation for those considering the Purpose Driven Career program, "I would recommend this program for those looking to approach their career change in a creative way, even if what they are looking to do isn’t exactly a creative field. Even more so if that’s the case. Kori understands how it all works, knows the rules, but aren’t bound by them. If they are in a career pivot looking to better understand what it is they do and don’t want to recreate in their next professional chapter. Understand that Kori won’t have all the answers for you, but she will absolutely support you in coming to your own understanding about what it is you need and want to do and without hesitation I can say the program was a good investment."
