If you’re content where you are, but are passively looking for your next position, do you give yourself a salary percent increase target, to help subsidize the risk of making a move?
I get asked this question occasionally, and I (and probably others) would like to hear your take.
Historically, I shot for 15-20%, but those positions were after 2-3 years of current employment, and were positions under $100k.
Higher paid positions, I think the target would probably need to be a smaller bump (5-10%), unless you’re drastically under the market range.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
