​20/20 Consulting

80% of those who ask for a raise get at least some of the request! 


  • Your first salary is the basis for your salary history​
  • Negotiating is expected of you, yet only 37% of millennials have ever asked for a raise
  • According to Business Insider, avoiding salary negotiation throughout your career means losing out on roughly $1 million dollars over the course of your life
  • Each salary increase helps not just at the time of negotiation, but every year after that
    • E.g. A $10,000 negotiated raise results in a $100,000 raise over 10 years!
  • 76% of hiring managers say that those who ask for a raise appear more confident
  • Negotiating allows you to get a sneak peak into the character of your future employer
