Wouldn’t it be great if there were just a script for asking for a raise? Oh yeah, Career Contessa made one.
The GIMME is a 5-step process that covers everything from how you open the conversation to how you end it in style. It looks something like this:
G: Give Background Info
I: Introduce Why You’re Awesome
M: Make Your (Researched-Based) Case
M: Make the Ask
E: End with a Bang
By hitting each step as you talk, you’ll make a clear case for why you deserve more money, and you’ll provide your boss with a clear idea of what value you bring to the team. It’s a perfect sell—one that’s a win-win for both of you.
