Raise Update (part 1)

Written by

I chickened out in asking for a raise on Friday. I did have a talk with the boss man and dropped a subtle hint. As importantly, I wanted to find out if there was any truth in a rumor about the company and a new venture it was taking. Turns out there was no truth to the rumor. At that point, I figured I had used up the enough of the "private talk" time for the day.

Interestingly, about ten minutes after that I got to talk with the CEO about another new venture the company was going into. It's a different and unrelated to the one I was asking about. The message was that changes are coming soon. The best part is that there's now a more concrete reason for me asking for a raise with the expanded responsibilities.

Now I just have to rehearse how it's going to go. Look for part 2 or even a part 3 with the results.
