News 12’s Kristie Reeter gives you The Real Deal on what jobs are increasing pay and how you can negotiate for more money at work.
New York is an expensive place, so are wages keeping up? Our partners at Investopedia are giving a breakdown of the numbers on what jobs are paying more.
"Workers in the state of New York have seen some decent wage gains for the last few years and they are concentrated in leisure and hospitality, which has over 8% over the last three years. Financial activities including banking up 7.3%. Professional and business services your lawyers, your accountants have seen wage gains of 5.5% and private service providers have seen wage gains of about 4.8% since 2019,” says Caleb Silver.
Maybe you are not in one of those industries but still want that bump in pay. Indeed, an employment website where you can look for jobs, shared some tips for a salary negotiation.
Some top tips include:
Know your salary expectations and limitations. Do some research for your field to know what a competitive salary would be.
Consider other negotiable benefits – ask for more paid time off, work flexibility or more training so you can grow into another role at the company.
Pick the right time to do this. Indeed found there are times when salary negotiations are more successful based on what time of the day or week you do them. Early afternoon tends to work best, not first thing when your boss is trying to get settled into work. The second half of the week tends to be better.
