When it comes to asking for a bonus, the best approach is to be direct but humble. Start by explaining why you think you deserve a bonus and be specific about what you've done to earn it. Then, ask politely if there's any way you could receive a bonus. Remember, it never hurts to ask. If your boss says no, then you can at least be happy knowing that you tried. And who knows, they may be impressed by your confidence and give you a raise instead!
