Six months into my “9-to-5:30 job with occasional overtime,” the position has turned into an 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. every Monday through Friday gig. I receive no extra compensation for these extra hours.
I’m changing industries and applied for a slew of jobs in a new field. I recently accepted a job offer for less money. The very next day I was offered another job for the amount of money I asked for.
What is success? Is it job satisfaction, a big paycheck, a healthy family—or maybe all of the above? And how do we become successful, someone that others admire and want to be like?
My annual review is approaching. Because of the extra work I’ve been handling lately, I feel like I deserve a raise. What’s the best way to negotiate a raise higher than the 5 percent cost-of-living?
