Podcast: How to get a raise and negotiate your pay
Talking about money is an uncomfortable topic for most of us. But avoiding these awkward conversations could be setting our careers back. When it comes to negotiating our pay, things get complicated fast.
Do you deserve to get a raise? How do you know how much you're worth? What are the best ways to bring it up with your boss? When is the right time? Say you just got a job offer, should you just accept it as is?
In this practical, how-to episode of Pocket Money, we speak with Claire Hatton and Greta Thomas, co-hosts of the Don't Stop Us Now podcast, to shed light on these and more overwhelming questions. Together, we explore the taboo subject of pay, how to navigate salary negotiations and the glaring wage gap between men and women in the working world.
