What you'll accomplish in this lesson
You will estimate your market value using a simple three-step process. Before you ask for your raise, it's important to have a specific goal in mind. To set that goal—your target salary—you need to know your market value.

I wasn’t sure if the value was there but now that I’ve taken it I can say that EVERYONE should take this course.
I wanted to make sure I wasn’t leaving money on the table and that I knew what my manager and company were looking for to give me a raise. This course taught me exactly what I needed to know, and Josh gave great answers to all of my questions about my specific situation.
Now I know that preparing for a raise is not difficult or overwhelming with the right guidance and the systemic process I learned in this course.Thai, Senior Software Engineer
