Wow. The nine most dreaded words any employee ever would want to hear. Questions run through your mind like, “What do I do?” and “How’s my wife going to react to this?” It is final, he makes it clear. No amount of begging or pleading will make it better.

If you have an assignment that lasts longer than three months, do not be afraid to ask for a raise. If the company had hired an employee, the employee would be getting a raise at about three months because that is a standard probation period for most companies. If you are doing a good job, many companies will be willing to increase your salary to keep you on board. The agency will handle the negotiations. If they say no, you have not lost anything. My experience is that they usually say yes.
