  • Step 1) sit down and reassess what you really like about your job and where you are good at – and ask family, friends and colleagues, where you are exceeding their expectations. Don’t ask your boss yet – this comes at a later stage! Very important: note it down.


  • Step 2) What do you really want to get and what are you ready to invest? Nothing comes for free – so, please reflect carefully whether you really want to get more responsibility, maybe a different employer or a better paid job in another city/ country, maybe a different work schedule etc., etc.?


  • Step 3) Do your research:
    What is your current annual total compensation (gross)?
    What is the market value of your current and desired position?
    When is the right time to address career and salary discussions?With whom do you need to talk?



  • Step 4) Where can you add value to your current or future job beyond the normal job description? Note down carefully and confirm with data. After all, you will only get promoted for the little extra you bring to your position.


  • Step 5) Fix an appointment for a career talk, relax and exhale before you start the discussion. Don’t forget, your employer is not your enemy!
