How We Can Help Boost Your Salary
January 29, 2018 / Sharnie Carter
We could all do with a bit more money, right…?
You may be doing fine with your current salary, but wouldn’t it be better to have more spare money…?
For that summer holiday… or to fix the hole in the roof… or just to treat yourself…
Well we want to help you boost your salary so that all of this is possible. And here’s how:
It’s all well and good wanting a pay rise but knowing how much to ask for and why you deserve it is a big part of the battle.
You may be applying for a new job or simply asking for a pay increase at your current job; either way it is important to have some backup knowledge to support your claim to boost your salary.
- Research your role in other companies and what salary they are offering
- Write down why you think you deserve a salary boost – what you bring to the company, how you have worked hard etc.
Make yourself indispensable
If you are a great asset to your workplace, it is unlikely that they will be willing to give you up. Losing you will be worth more than the increase in your salary.
Ensure that you are working to your maximum potential and in such a way that no one else would be able to do. A great way to do this is by improving your skills.
Having a vast catalogue of skills and qualifications under your belt will make you stand out to future employers. Taking up a qualification or course while you are in employment also shows your employer that you are committed and passionate about your role.
At Open Study College, we can help make this possible. We have a vast range of courses to improve your knowledge, skills and qualifications.
For example, if you work in Accounting or Bookkeeping, our AAT courses are a great way to improve skills and gain an internationally recognised qualification.
Or childcare and education. We have a range of CACHE courses that teach you the basics, as well as more detailed knowledge and practices for working with children and young people.
Even if your career is a bit more obscure, like Dog Grooming or Cake Baking, there will be a course available to you.
Improve your skills. Boost Your Salary.
