Ask For a Raise

With inflation skyrocketing, getting a raise could mean the difference between keeping a roof over your head and being homeless. So I start every 1-on-1 with this question: “When’s my next raise?” I wasn’t always like this. For the first 5 years of my career, I wasn’t

I started keeping a Brag Doc at work in Aug 2018. I learned about them from Julia Evans on Twitter. The premise is simple. You’re already doing awesome work, therefore, you should get recognized for it. Since I started, I’ve been promoted every year - except for 1.
