Emphasize your value when asking for a raise

In an interview with Business Insider earlier this year, Tyra Banks offered her insight on how to be on top in the workforce.

When it comes to asking for a raise, “You need to sit there and talk about your value,” she said. “Talk about what you have done that has increased revenues, increased engagement, or how you’ve been working from nine to nine, even though you are only supposed to be working from nine to six. And that you are a salaried employee, so it’s not like you’re getting more money.”

She added: “And based on your input, into that company, and based on the metrics and the things that have happened because of the things that you were doing, that’s why you deserve the raise. You don’t need a raise, deserve a raise.”
