(WIAT) — If you are looking for a new job or a new pay, experts say follow these three tips.

Number one:

 Look up what your pay should be based on your experience and industry.

Number two:
Make sure you know your info and write a formal proposal to your boss.
Finally, number three:

Never give out the first number.
Beverly Harzog of U.S. World Report, explains, “Keep your number to yourself. Make the boss talk first. Get what the company thinks they should pay you.”

Experts say it pays to be familiar with industry salary trends because you can demand more based on what others are getting in your same position and experience level.
