When and How to Ask for a Raise

One of the biggest dilemmas of my career so far has been asking for a raise at work. First of all I have a big hesitation to ask for anything... even if something is rightfully mine, I find it difficult to ask for it. This hesitation has cost me heavily in terms of salary for my work. I have been trying to get rid of this hesitation. One of the resources I have used is reading articles by career experts on how and when to ask for raise.

One of the recent articles I read on this subject is one titled "Timing Important When Asking for a Raise". This is a pretty detailed treatise which details a few specific scenarios that are ideal while asking for a raise.
