Vol. 17 Issue 908 October 18 - 25, 2013

SHOULD YOU NEGOTIATE A RAISE WHEN YOU GET A PROMOTION? Picture it: You were tapped as THE candidate for an internal job. You interviewed with senior people, jumped ropes and hoops and got the job. You PROVED you are the right person for this new role. But you are not sure whether to ask for the raise.

You are not alone. Many of us feel as though the company will “do the right thing” and let us know if - and when - a raise will be associated with the promotion. But the longer we wait to have the discussions, the less control we have over the outcome. If you want a raise with a promotion, then ask for it. Because - if you are being given the promotion - you deserve the raise. Here’s how: Discuss the compensation with your current manager. When interviewing for an internal job, you will (or at least you should) meet with many individuals. But your closest relationship should be with your manager. And, your manager should be your advocate - selling you internally as the right candidate for the promotion. If your manager believes you are the right candidate, then your manager should believe you deserve a raise. During the interviewing process, ask your manager about the salary level associated with the new job. Discuss your expectations for the salary level. If the job is in a new grade/pay level, there should be a new bonus structure and other incentives/ benefits associated with the job. Find out about this during the process - don’t wait until afterwards. Discuss the compensation with your new manager. If you receive the promotion, you may end up with a new manager. Great. Here is an opportunity to start your working relationship on a positive note. Before asking about money, sit down with your new manager and discuss his/her expectations for you and this role. Ask how your performance will be measured. Once you have a discussion about how you will meet expectations and contribute to the group, ask your new manager what the compensation will be for this new role. Having the conversation in the context of overall performance sets the stage for being paid for your value and contributions. How to ask for more money if the pay level is lower than what you expected: Throughout the course of these discussions and interviews, you may determine

By Stacey Hawley

that the pay raise is appropriate and you are pleased with your new salary. But what if you were expecting more? Then you need to have the discussion NOW before the decision is final. Sit down with your manager and ask about the salary. Politely say “Based on my contributions and expectations for this new role, I would like to be paid $X for this new role.” Rather than say “I would like more money”, state would you would like. Exactly. Saying what you would like in actual terms takes the discussion away from sounding ungrateful or that you are greedy. Saying what you like in actual amounts is clear, concise and you are more likely to get it. If your manager responds with a list of constraints, listen. Then respond by saying again that you anticipate exceeding his/her expectations, was given the role because the company believes you can deliver and want to be valued by the company. If your manager continues to hem and haw, ask about how you can both work together to improve your compensation. Should you talk with HR? Most likely, your manager will ask for time. And that is OK. Your manager may return with the dollar value you asked for, a little less or none. Then you need to decide whether you will accept the promotion without the raise you expected. You can also ask for a review and raise in 6 months, to get you to where you expect to be paid. Most importantly, don’t leave the responsibility for your pay up to anyone else at the firm but you.

Ask Diana If you have any questions about interviewing, hiring, or work, just email Ask Diana. I’d love to hear from you. Due to the volume of response, not every question will appear in the column, but most questions will receive an email response within 2 to 3 days.

I have never worked and am a stay-athome mom with a 14 month-old son. I woke up this morning and decided that I am going to divorce my husband. He earns plenty of money as an over the road truck driver, but lately he hasn’t been paying attention and paying the bills. We have lost 3 cars because of this, and I have to drive a Nissan instead of my Escalade. I know it’s going to be hard, but I need to get out of this and make some money. Do you have any advice for me? -Stay at home Mom, Houston, Texas Reader I love your question! I think I’ve hit the trifecta this time because the question could have gone to Dear Abby, Dave Ramsey or me. First, I’ll channel Dave Ramsey and

say that I cannot understand why you were making payments on 3 cars when your husband is on the road most of the time. Does your baby drive one of the cars? You should get a car you can afford and get rid of all the car payments. And, I’m sorry, but you are being arrogant when you think that you are too good to drive a Nissan. That’s one of those “get over it” things. Most people would be happy to have a nice car – no matter what brand it is. Now let’s think about Dear Abby. If you plan to leave your husband, shouldn’t you go for counseling or do something to repair the relationship instead of just deciding to put your family through such a horrible, life-changing event? You must have had a good relationship at one time, and it might be possible to regain that happiness if you both work on it. However, if there are too many differences to be bridged, you need to find someone who can counsel you in your next moves.

Okay, now it’s time for Ask Diana. It may be hard to find a job that pays enough money to support you at the level you expect. This will be a time for budgeting and making sure that you are not over- spending. Since you have no work experience, it might be best to get some more education so that you can get a better paying job. You need to really plan for the life changes that you are about to undergo and make sure that you can handle it. Good luck! I have been working from home for years and going in to the office about once a week. We just received word last week that everyone will be working at the office now, and I am really not looking forward to this. Have you read any studies or information that would explain why so many corporations are eliminating work from home jobs? -The Woodlands, Texas Reader

seems to be that they want to tap into the dynamic that shares innovative ideas and concepts. Since Yahoo did this, their stock prices have risen and new products have emerged. It seems to me that they are throwing out the baby with the bathwater, though. Some people may need to work in tandem with the group to grow and develop products and services collaboratively. However, there are some people who will be more connected and work better from home. After all, they are working while other people are commuting.

Have a question for Diana?

Why, yes, I have read some recent reports Email AskDiana@JobSparx.com about this new trend. The reasoning

DAVE SAYS

Life insurance vs. Better car, better 529 gas mileage? Dear Dave,

Dear Dave,

An insurance salesman told me it’s Is it a good idea to sell your car in order to better to use a life insurance policy for get one that gets better gas mileage? college savings rather than a 529 plan because the child can use it for anything Trey instead of just college. Is that true? Only if the other car is really cheap, or cheaper than the one you’re selling. I think it’s funny when people run out and upgrade on their $7,000 Dear Rusty, car to buy a $30,000 Prius to save gas. Think about it. That’s an extra expenditure of $23,000 Of course that’s what he told you. He’s an to save gas. Where are you planning on driving, insurance salesman! to the moon?

Rusty

Who Is Dave Ramsey? Dave Ramsey is a personal money management expert, popular national radio personality and the author of three New York Times bestsellers – The Total Money Makeover, Financial Peace Revisited and More Than Enough. In them, Ramsey exemplifies his life’s work of teaching others how to be financially responsible, so they can acquire enough wealth to take care of loved ones, live prosperously into old age, and give generously to others. Ramsey knows first-hand what financial peace means in his own life, having lived a true rags-to-riches to rags-to-riches story. By age 26 he had established a $4,000,000 real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age 30. He has since rebuilt his financial life and now devotes himself full-time to helping ordinary people understand the forces behind their financial distress and how to set things right - financially, emotionally and spiritually. Ramsey offers life-changing financial advice as host of a nationally syndicated radio program, “The Dave Ramsey Show,” which is heard by three million listeners each week on more than 300 radio stations throughout the United States. His syndicated column, “Dave Says,” can be read in more than 250 publications worldwide. He resides with his wife, Sharon, and their three children, Denise, Rachel, and Daniel, in Nashville, Tennessee.

He was right on one point. If the kid doesn’t go to college, the savings inside an insurance policy can be used for anything. But here’s the catch: There won’t be much waiting for you, because you saved it inside a life insurance policy. The returns stink! Savings inside a life insurance policy won’t get you anywhere near the cash you’d have by investing in a 529 plan. If you’re going to save for your kids’ college fund, there needs to be lots of talk around the house about actually going to college. It’s not really brainwashing them so much as it’s letting them know the importance of a good education. And they need to know, on no uncertain terms, that the money you’re saving for them is for one thing: college. What you experienced, Rusty, was an insurance salesman trying to sell insurance. Stay away from it when it comes to saving up for college! —Dave

Actually saving money is a much better plan than some of the ideas people dream up in the name of saving money. When it comes to things like this, you need to sit down and do the math. Crunch some hard, cold figures and see what happens. “Well, if we got this kind of gas mileage, instead of what we’re getting now, how much money would we save?” But if you spend $5,000 more to save $50 it will take forever to get back the money you’ve already spent. Getting better gas mileage is good thing, but I wouldn’t recommend spending any more than the value of the car you’re currently driving to make it happen. Moving down in car but up in mileage is a great plan. If you do that, you’ll really start making headway with your money. This kind of scenario is a simple math thing, Trey. The problem is lots of times people’s emotions get caught up in stuff, and next thing you know they think they have a real reason to buy an expensive, new piece of automotive technology. I call that car fever, and it’ll wreck your finances in a hurry! —Dave

Dave Ramsey is America’s most trusted voice on money and business. He’s authored four New York Times bestselling books: Financial Peace, More Than Enough, The Total Money Makeover and EntreLeadership. The Dave Ramsey Show is heard by more than 5,000,000 listeners each week on more than 500 radio stations. Follow Dave on Twitter at @DaveRamsey and on the web at daveramsey.com.
