-When you’re going down to have that all-important discussion with your boss about a raise, about a vacation, about a promotion, what’s the first thing you should do?
-Make an appointment so you have enough time to make your point. Don’t catch the boss off guard.

-Should you go in with a typed-up list of things to talk about?
-It’s knowing what your goals are. Go in prepared knowing if you want a pay raise, go in for a pay raise.

-How do you keep cool if your boss says no?
-Remember that you can always put this conversation on pause. You can say:

“Okay, thank you. Let’s take this up again at a later date.”
“Okay, I thought I’d ask. When can we revisit this topic?”
