I believe that I have been excelling at work over the last several months since my annual evaluation in April and want to request a raise. In addition, my supervisor took a transition assignment to China in June and I have to work without daily direct supervision and attend meetings that he was/is supposed to attend at the central headquarters office. Also, his peer was on maternity leave for three months and I had to cover some of her regional responsibilities.
Also, my supervisor is an expert at these conversations due to technical knowledge and psychology.
How should I approach this conversation at my mid-year performance evaluation?
Projected responses by supervisor:
An Indefinite NO
Wait b/c there will be an additional responsibility added to you in the coming months that I cannot reveal now
Finally, I feel that I should get 10% but he may say 3-5%.
I need a confidence booster to go into this conversation.
