      [have at least four]
      [major]
      [accomplishments]

However, I'm still working for the initial salary on which we agreed [time since last

accomplishments, and that time has come. In light of my accomplishments and per our
agreement, I'm respectfully requesting an immediate pay raise of [amount or percent
raise], to be followed in [time period] by a performance-based pay raise of an additional

I strongly feel that I have earned this pay raise and I'm confident that I will also earn the

meet to discuss this, please let me know. If I don't hear from you by [reasonable date], I
will assume that you've waived our meeting because you have agreed to my terms.

Thank you again for the opportunity. I look forward to continuing to be a key player on
your team in a mutually rewarding relationship.



Regards,
