Impressing your boss before asking for a raise

If you're hurting for money and are ready to ask for a raise, it might be in your interest to impress your boss beforehand to get on his good side. Whether he already recognizes your efforts or you think you could improve your reputation, there are a couple of ways to put the spotlight on yourself.

AskMen.com recommends going out of your way to complete tasks that often fall by the wayside at your office, whether it's cleaning the refrigerator or sending out the company newsletter. These favors can earn you brownie points with your boss.

CNN.com also encourages you to own up to your mistakes when they occur and promise to do better. By showing that you're serious about improving your performance, you can get on your boss' good side.

At the end of the day, these efforts still might not be enough to get you the raise you deserve. In this instance, it might be time to start looking for a new job. Speak to a live psychic for advice on where to go next in your career. A tarot reading can let you know when a new opportunity will arise.
