  該如何寫信跟老闆『提加薪』呢?
 


※ 信件開頭

信件開頭要有「稱呼語」明確指出收信對象。常見的有像是「Dear + 收信人」或「Hi + 收信人」。例如:Dear Mr. Smith,、Dear Mary,、Hi John.。

※ 信件內容

有了信件開頭,之後就是信件的內容啦!而在爭取加薪的信中,有幾項要素可以包含在內:

◎ 來信目的

可以簡短說明是為了爭取加薪,並善用 I am writing to…、I would like to... 等句型。例如:

● I am writing to formally request a review of my current salary.
(我來信是為了正式請求檢視我的現有薪資。)

● I would like to request an adjustment to my salary.
(我希望請求調整我的薪資。)

◎ 工作資歷

可以簡單敘述自己的職稱年資,並在言語中透露對公司的忠誠、工作的熱愛及責任感等。例如:

● I have greatly enjoyed working at XXX Company, and I feel I have contributed a great deal to the company in the past five years.(我在 XXX 公司工作一直都很愉快,而在過去這五年,我認為我為公司做出很大貢獻。)

● During my time as a Marketing Executive for XXX Company, I have become an integral member of the marketing team.(我在擔任 XXX 公司的行銷專員期間,成為行銷團隊不可或缺的一份子。)

◎ 成就與貢獻

可以積極強調在公司的成就及貢獻,並舉出具體例子。例如:

● In the past year alone, for example, I have accomplished the following tasks:(舉例來說,僅在過去這一年,我便完成以下任務:)
- took the lead on the new XXX project(領導全新的 XXX 計畫)
- assumed additional responsibilities such as XXX(承擔額外職責如 XXX)

● My salary has remained the same since March 2015. Since then, I have achieved the following goals:
(我的薪水自 2015 年 3 月起就維持不變。在那之後,我達成了下列目標:)
- brought in $45,000 more in sales than the year before
(為公司賺取高出去年四萬五千美元的銷售獲利)
- implemented new systems and saved annual expenditure by 5% for the company(執行新系統並為公司省下百分之五的年開支)

◎ 具體調薪數字

可以根據市場薪資行情等,提出理想中的具體調薪數字。例如:

● I would like to request a pay raise by five percent, which would put my compensation in line with industry standard.
(我希望請求加薪百分之五,這將會使我的報酬符合行業標準。)

● My research indicates the average annual salary for my position is $50,000, so I believe a raise of 10 percent would be appropriate.
(我做的調查指出我的職位平均年薪是五萬美元,所以我認為調薪百分之十是恰當的。)

◎ 感謝語

提完加薪要求之後,可以在信中再次表達感謝,並表示希望能有進一步的討論。例如:

● I enjoy my work, and I appreciate the support you and the team have shown me. Thank you for your time. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
(我很喜歡我的工作,也很感謝您以及團隊對我表現出的支持。謝謝您抽空讀信。期待近期和您碰面。)

● I'm grateful to be a member of this company. If possible, I'd love the opportunity to meet with you and further discuss this in person.
(我很感謝能成為這間公司的一份子。如果可能的話,我希望能有機會跟您碰面並當面進一步討論這件事。)

◎ 信件結尾

信件最後記得寫上像是:Sincerely,、Regards,、Kind regards, 等常見結尾用語,之後換行並寫上自己名字喔!

掌握這些原則,相信下次想要寫信跟老闆提加薪時,就不會千頭萬緒完全不知如何下筆囉!
