Success in annual assessment
The qualification you receive from your boss determines your salary, bonuses and even promotions.

Working for a younger boss
In Inglés | If you work for someone, you probably go through the annual ritual known as the annual performance review. This process is to give you and your boss the opportunity to talk about your job performance and set goals. It also serves to determine the salary increases, bonuses and even promotions that can receive. 

Do not think about performance evaluation like any other work day. At that meeting, the quality of their work, and their behavior, is evaluated and rated. You will receive a numerical score, a rating letter, or a descriptive phrase such as "meets expectations". Here's how to achieve the best result in your next evaluation. 

Before the evaluation

Set goals. Prepare a list of realistic and achievable goals. Address obstacles and possible resource problems that could prevent you from moving forward. Think of opportunities for training and development.

Look for suggestions. Ask for feedback from colleagues, customers and vendors. Ask for specific comments about your work habits and behaviors, including your accomplishments and areas for improvement.

Review your achievements. Get examples of your best work and your most visible achievements. If you can measure the quantity and quality of your work, keep these statistics handy.

Write your self-assessment. Here you will include the opinions you have received from others and the list of your achievements. If you are asked to self-rate, be honest. There is nothing better than a little self-criticism to tell your boss that you have a realistic attitude.

Get ready. Think about how you will react to various possible outcomes. If you receive extremely positive comments, accept them with humility. And if the news is not good, at least you'll be prepared to maintain your composure and present your own opinion.

During the evaluation

Make your boss feel calm. Even the best of employees gets nervous when it's going to be evaluated. It is important to remember that your boss is also likely to feel somewhat uncomfortable. Say something funny or just smile, whatever it takes to avoid tension.

Listen carefully. Watch what your boss says. Ask questions to clarify what is necessary, but try not to talk too much. When you speak, pause to think what you are going to say, and make constructive and specific comments.

Be careful if you will contradict it. If you disagree with some important point, have a logical argument ready. Present information or evidence to support your position. Keep your voice and your emotions in check.

Do not make comparisons. Avoid comparing your work with that of others. If he says things like, "Yes, but Fred never meets the deadlines assigned to him," the conversation will end in the wrong way.


An average rating is a good thing. Employers can not qualify all employees as excellent, nor give them the maximum wage increases. It is either an "average" overall rating, or that it says "meets expectations". Obviously, try to improve, but keep in mind that sometimes the rating is nothing more than a numbers game.

 After the evaluation

Give thanks. Express your gratitude for the time and effort invested by your boss. Even if you receive a negative evaluation, nothing wins by showing up annoying. Remember that perhaps the same manager will do his next evaluation again.

Sign where you have to. He does not gain anything by refusing to sign the evaluation sheet, but he can lose something. They may find it problematic and uncooperative. Signing the evaluation does not prevent you from refuting your content.

Do not say anything to anyone. If you get an excellent rating and a salary increase, great. But do not count it. Bragging about your peers can cause envy and make your boss uncomfortable.

Be careful if you are going to complain. If you disagree with your evaluation, ask what the procedure is to ask for reconsideration of your performance. When you receive the answer, present your arguments objectively and in detail. Do not speak badly about your boss in public. It will gain the hostility of the managerial level and diminish its credibility.
