How to Avoid Getting the Axe from Your Healthcare Job

How to Avoid Getting the Axe from Your Healthcare Job

Georgia Price / AllHealthcare

8. Ask for the Promotion or Raise You Deserve!

You work hard and you’re great at your job. If you think you deserve a raise or promotion, ask for it! Let your supervisor know that you are ready to take on more responsibility or that you want a chance to move up. Many employers won’t offer a raise or promotion unless you bring it up. Afraid of asking in a shaky economy? Don’t be. The worst they can say is “No” and then you have at least secured a place in your employer’s mind when he/she does think about increasing salaries or promoting from within.

Idly sitting aside and letting someone else land the promotion you wanted doesn’t do anything to help your career, in the present or the long-run. Let your employer know where you stand and what your goals are, and you are more likely to get there.
