听力原文:

K: How's your career going? Last time we spoke you said you were trying to get a raise.

A: Yep. That's the plan. I mean, I've certainly put in the hours. I'm definitely one of the most productive members of the company and I feel I contribute a lot.

K: So? What's the problem? Why haven't you gone in there and demanded a raise?

A: I just can't work up the confidence to do it. I know I need to, and I know I need it, but it's tough.

Anita想涨工资,可又不知道怎么开口。她说自己就是鼓不起勇气。I just can't work up the confidence to do it. Kim是怎么指点她的呢?

K: OK sister, we are going to figure this out together. If there's one thing I'm good at, it's asking for what I need.

A: I don't even know where to begin. My son needs braces and his school tuition has just gone up. We really need to get a new car and even the dog has needs we can't pay for.

K: OK, stop right there. You can't base your salary request according to your needs. The company isn't a charity and if you go in and say, "I need" it's not going to work.

第一,不能跟老板说,我缺钱,因为公司不是慈善机构。Anita说,儿子需要整牙,学费涨价,家里需要换新车,结果被Kim叫停。

A: I could probably make more money if I changed companies.

K: There you go...that's a powerful argument. But leave any threats till the last minute. What you need to do is stress your value.

A: I do have to consider the current global economic slowdown. Our company has been taking quite a hit.

K: That's true. You have to take those factors into account. But you also have to get paid at a fair rate.

Anita说,如果换个工作,工资肯定会增加。Kim觉得这是一个很好的理由,但建议说,leave any threats till the last minute. 威胁是最后的杀手锏。Kim说,what you need to do is stress your value. 要强调自己对公司的价值。
