9 tips to prove your worth and put more cash in your pocket

Determining your worth should be a huge factor in your negotiating a higher salary for yourself, and with that in mind I’ve provided a checklist that all PR pros should follow heading into an annual review.

2. Keep files such as examples of your best work, client or co-worker e-mails to your manager “for a job well done” and any other recognition you have.

4. Be sure to self-review throughout the year to monitor your progress so you are able to secure a higher salary during your annual review.
