by Richard C. Wilson on March 28, 2012

There comes a time in everyone’s career that they feel they deserve more money than what they are getting paid.  If you have come to that time in your career as a financial analyst, you will want to keep these things in mind when breaching the subject of salary with your supervisor.

  • Schedule a meeting with your supervisor to discuss money.
  • Be positive and factual, not emotional.
  • Do your research and be sure to quote industry norms for those holding a similar position.
  • Support your request with performance examples showing you have earned a raise.
  • Make sure you have met all company requirements to qualify for a pay raise.

Keeping these facts in mind when you have decided to ask for more money will help you approach the subject in the best way and be taken seriously. As a financial analyst, you may have done the work to deserve the raise, just be sure to ask for the raise in the right manner.
