The Knowledge Academy's Talveer Sandhu shares tips to keep in mind when asking for a raise: “When you talk to your boss, refine the company's goals and values. Give examples of how you met and exceeded these goals, then politely ask to discuss adjusting your salary based on your exceptional efforts. "
Addressing people's concerns at LinkedIn, Sandhu said, “LinkedIn usage will vary depending on the industry you're in, but ultimately it's great for networking. Start by producing engaging and relevant content, for example by sharing your own top tips about your job or things you recently learned about your industry, you will reap the benefits soon enough! "
Sandhu also added, "Our health is more of a concern and often an inconvenience, more than ever, so it's important to hit the right tone on the phone call or email."
