The folks at the grad school resource site GradSchoolHub.com put together this infographic that grads old and new alike should keep in mind after leaving school: how to ask for better pay. Our cultural reluctance to discuss money makes this uncomfortable for many (39%, apparently, and more for women), but everyone should at least ask for annual cost of living raises. You should also make as much as peers in similar jobs and be rewarded for exceptional performance, but for better or worse, it's up to you to ask. The biggest piece of advice? Chronicle your own achievements at work, because no one else will.
