Being a writer is difficult and they don't pay me what I'm worth. I want to ask for a raise but I don't want to seem unprofessional or greedy. How can I go about asking for a raise in the most professional way possible?
When asking for a raise, you should first do your research. Find out what the average salary is for your position and try to get an idea of what you should be earning. Next, schedule a meeting with your boss and come prepared with a list of your accomplishments. Finally, explain why you deserve a raise and give them a specific number that you're looking for. Remember to be confident and assertive, but avoid being too pushy.
