Description

We all want to be rewarded fairly and well for our work. If sometimes you believe you are due more, what do you do?

This book puts the concept of "pay rise" in context with career management. It reviews how to view your work, job and future, how to link job satisfaction and rewards and define what, exactly, rewards are ( the "package") and how to assertively and persuasively approach asking for an increase.

It provides an invaluable and thought provoking and practical guide for all those who believe the old saying that you do not get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.
