Be indispensable and likeable
Your new job offer is invariably linked to your last drawn salary, so make sure it grows through the years. Apart from the responsibility you handle, your salary hikes depend on your indispensability and likeability. Work towards acquiring skills and solving problems that no one else can, and be a person that others love to work with. To keep your income growing, find a role or firm where you are likely to succeed over a threeto five-year time frame.
If you have changed 3-4 jobs in 10 years, you will be perceived as unstable and unemployable for a mid- to senior-level role. Besides, random job changes driven by salary hikes alone mean there is no specialised set of skills to hire you for. Also remember that if you take a super-specialised role with a very high salary, no one else will require your skills or be able to afford your salary. Finally, if you take a huge hike in salary and a role with impossible deliverables, you are very likey to find yourself unemployed soon and trying to explain your failure.
