What is the best way to get the salary you deserve? Surprisingly, the answer is rather simple. Ask for it. PayScale.com recently surveyed 31,000 users to find out how many people have asked for a raise. We analyzed and published the results in this comprehensive Salary Negotiation Guide. The findings are alarming. Over half of the total survey respondents (57%) have never asked for an increase in pay. On the other hand, 75% of individuals who asked for a raise received some type of salary increase. Clearly, if you do not ask, you do not have a chance at getting the paycheck you deserve.
PayScale recently released our annual College Salary Report, which ranks colleges and majors by post-graduate earning potential. This year we have expanded the report to include 2-year, 4-year, and graduate degree rankings.
