How do I write a letter to get a raise?

I know I deserve a raise, I just don't know how to write a good letter.

A good start would be to cite some examples of work that has put you above others in your same pay grade and how you would continue to excel.

Be polite but firm. Highlight any work you've done that is above and beyond the requirements of your role, and how it has been of benefit to the company. Don't compare your salary or skills directly to specific colleagues as this may come across as either self-pitying or overly arrogant.

When writing a letter to get a raise you should be courteous and complimentary to your boss, but also explain the value that you bring to the organization you work for. You could talk about your career goals and imply, but not threat, that not getting a raise might cause you to leave your company and get employment elsewhere.

Basically your letter should begin with a short background of your experiences with the company, 1-2 paragraphs at most. Then you should outline your expectations and justifications for the raise.
