Are You Your Own Greatest Career Enemy?
Linda tells us:
The results of our second Citi/LinkedIn Today’s Professional Woman Report, just released today, revealed that only 1 in 4 women had asked for a raise in the past year. But lo and behold, when those 1 in 4 told us what happened when they asked, 75% said they got a salary increase. And more than half received more than or equal to what they expected.
Seriously, ladies?! Think about that. If you decide it’s time to ask for a raise, you have a 75% chance of getting it! Now, what’s holding you back. If you knew you had a 75% chance of winning 10% of your salary, wouldn’t you enter the contest? Then why aren’t you entering your career with the same “taking chances” mentality? You are the only thing standing in your way!
