I have been offered a higher position at the company I recently joined about 3 months ago. I have had a fair idea that I was being considered for the position for a while. I was asked if I'd be interested in taking up the role and I responded positively. At the same time, I was hoping the change in salary would be brought up but that was not the case. I would like to know what's an appropriate way to ask for a revision in Salary at this time?


"Does this new role come with an increase in salary?" seems an appropriate way to ask.

  • "just ask" is of course the right answer, but the best way to ask depends on who you are talking to. If OP works in dep. A and the new job is in dep B, the hiring manager in B may not know her current salary. In this case you can just ask for "job title" or "saralary band" " pay grade" or whatever classficiation your company uses to set compensation bands. If it's the same as your current one, it's unlikely to result in a significant raise – Hilmar Nov 10 '20 at 12:48
  • The best wording is "What is the salary?" – Fattie Nov 10 '20 at 18:49
  • or "What is the salary of the XYZ role?" – Fattie Nov 10 '20 at 18:50
