You know the adage, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” Well, if your goal is to advance within your company, the same logic applies to the level of effort you’re putting in at the office. “The best way to ask for a raise is to do more than you’re getting paid for,” says Blair. “Your work product should speak for itself. If you’re not getting the attention of management, you should put in writing the results of your work product and ask for a meeting to discuss what you need to do in order to get what you want out of your job.”
