Can I Use Another Job Offer in a Raise Negotiation?


You tell your company got another job offer it could signal to your employer that you're looking elsewhere. Then they could start thinking of you as a short term employees here for a good time but not a long time and looking for the next big opportunity. You don't want your employer to think of you this way you are. Employers are more likely to give you more opportunities at that job if they think of you as a long term investment. That said i do think that a new job offer can be excellent leverage. You just need to approach it delicately but a word of caution. You should factor in the possibility that this conversation may affect your relationship with your employer or be prepared for your employer to call your bluff and tell you go head. Simon take that offer by. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. That's why you should never make up a second offer. If that doesn't exist for everyone else out
