How much are you worth?

It’s a hard question to answer. After all, what one person thinks another should be paid compared to the amount they themselves figure is the right amount, can and often is very different.

Hard though it may be to answer, it is one that you need to be aware of if your plan is to not only be valued for the work you do with your current employer, but also to put yourself in a position of strength when negotiating the salary in your next role, and the one after that.

So, how do you work out how you should be remunerated and more important, the most effective way to get it.

In the latest of our guides for Candidates, we take you through the five key steps that will do just this. From working out the best time to approach your boss to ask for a pay rise to the key lessons learned if the negotiations don’t quite go according to plan.

Candidates are motivated by several factors, from the variety of work they do and the people they work with, to the opportunities for career progression and of course the salary they earn. While money is important, to be truly happy is to know that the amount you receive in your pay packet is reflective of what you are truly worth.

If any of the above resonates with you, perhaps now is the time to take matters into your own hands and see how you can improve on what you already have. After all, we each spend around 70% of our waking week at work, so isn’t it only fair that you see the best return on your time investment? We certainly think so.
