After going through a breakup, you may start to think about making some other changes in your life – specifically in your career. If you decide, for example, to ask for a raise or a promotion, one of the first steps is to think clearly and objectively about what you want before you ask for it. The next step is to be very confident and truly believe in your request so you can defend it in case you are questioned. The third step is to remember that you deserve this and to not second guess yourself. Next, don’t issue an ultimatum as they rarely work and may not reflect well on your character. Lastly, remember that getting what you want starts with you! There are tips and tricks you can learn to help you build better relationships with friends and co-workers. Even when things don’t go your way, you can still turn them into a positive experience. For the complete article on “How To Ask For What You Want”, visit Career Girl Daily.
