I read an article today called 5 Things Your Boss is Thinking As You Ask for a Raise. It is an example of how important it is to think – from the other side of the desk.
It’s really important to shift your thinking during your job search too. Ask yourself: If I was [hiring manager’s name], who would I want to hire? Someone who could hit the ground running. Someone with great ideas and the tactical know-how to make it happen fast. …. By shifting your thinking to the hiring manager’s perspective you can begin to focus on the benefits that matter most to them.
