Never Ask for a Pay Raise

In the hypothetical scenario that you want to optimize your finances as an employee, you have two options: Reduce your current expenses and increase your salary. Since both of these options are non-exclusive, you choose to do both.

If you want to ask for a pay raise, in short words: Don’t. Stop right there. Most of the time, you’re not ready to ask for it.

Of course, you have to test the waters (MVPs are a good tool for this), but always with an open mind that you’ll most likely be proven wrong.

Are Technical Certifications that Important to Have? an Informed Opinion on the Topic

My standpoint on technical certifications is a mixed one, and it mostly depends on several factors. Does your industry require you to have it? Is your company asking you to get certified? Is it the pursuit of knowledge or merely just compliance with a component of peer pressure? Are you sure you’re getting the most value out of it?
