Raises during the annual review

By IT/Business Consultant ·
When is the right time to present your case for a raise during a formalized annual review process? I have my annual review coming up and want to talk to my boss about what I am worth based on industry and market analysis. I am afraid that if I wait until after my review I may be stuck with a minimial raise when I feel I warrant more based on abilities, contributions, market worth, etc. Do I present a case even before I know what I am slated to receive? Or possibly present my information during the annual review when my raise is presented?

Raises during the annual review

I would present my case during a review. That is usually the time for it. An exception might be the start of a project, stating that since you're taking on more work you should get more money, or at the end of a sucessful project, where you can demonstrate your worth. The review is supposed to be where you look back at your work for the past year, and planning for the next. You can get salary surveys off the net to back up your value. the only bad thing about right now is that the economy is down. I know people that have been laid off in the past month, and people that are going to be laid off right after Christmas. Salaries are a little lower now than they were a year ago, though that depends on your location as well.
Good Luck.
