It is generally not recommended to change companies, in such a short time, unless you have compelling reasons why you cannot continue (the salary increase cannot be that reason).

In India, you can expect an increase of 20% to 30%, but it depends on several factors such as

  • Your current compensation and if you are in the highest / lowest / middle range for that position in the given city.
  • Supply-demand gap to fill that position.
  • Urgency of the position to be filled.

  • Urgency of the position to be filled.

The industry trend is 2 to 3 times greater than your range of experience, depending on the level of experience you bring, niche digital skills, and work in IT service companies. In product companies, it can be 3 to 4 times greater than the experience range.

With these inputs you can make an informed decision as I do not know your current / target companies.

I think my own example will be the best answer to this question. I graduated in August 2017, I did not get a college placement. I started to improve myself with current technologies in the field that interested me, namely AngularJS, NodeJS.

Joined a startup as an intern in January, worked there for the next 3 months.

You switched to a product-based company with CTC 2.6 (this is what to expect if you are looking for a job off campus). He worked there for 6 months.

The internship in a startup and 6 months in a product company gave me much more confidence and knowledge.

We now have an offer of 3.6LPA, that is 40%

The most important thing to do the walk as you want is to show your skills, which will be useful for the company. Tell them why they shouldn't let such talent go. Tell them what new things you can bring to the company that will facilitate their business growth.

I hope this helps.

I don't know if he will be able to pull it off to get a 35% increase. The reasons are as follows

1. The potential employer will see through you that you are more interested in money and will narrow your chances.
2. Even if the Employer needs it urgently, you MAY give less or more%. But it will not give you an increase at the time of the annual appraisal.
3. In general, the employer is less inclined to search for work. They prefer stable employees.

Most importantly, your profile can be seen as a serial job hopper. You may get a nice raise, but later on, you will have to work much harder to get a job.

Many multinational companies reject employees, who have changed 2 jobs in 2 years.

Hope it helps you, good luck!

It depends on the employer and many of the employers do not consider 6 months or less than 6 months as a good experience. You may be rejected for not being stable.

If the company feels that you are worth enough for the position and there is an urgency to fill the vacancy, you can definitely expect 20% -30% over the last CTC.

The increase from 35% to 40% will depend exclusively on the salary standards of the company. If you have a good work experience in hand and have solid knowledge, you can expect 35% -40%.

To be frank, the chances are less because a company is looking for an employee who is stable enough to stick with a partner.

To be honest, the chances are less because a company is looking for an employee who is stable enough to stay with the company for longer as they spend a lot of money on training. You can give it a try, let's hope for the best and we'll never know what the future holds.

All the best!

Well, it all depends on your profile and skills that you have. If you are working in niche technologies and have a high level skill set, then it does not matter that it changes only 6 months. It also depends on the requirements of the organization as sometimes organizations are looking for particular technology oriented people to hire and there are not many people in the market due to the latest technology and they need people immediately due to project timelines, then they can offer you an even more hike than you want for you too.

No, you will not.

Employers will ask you what your salary was at the last company and calculate the increase from that.

Also, since you are leaving so early, you will be asked a variety of questions about the reason for the change now, and you should have a compelling answer.

My two cents - Not worth it. Stay with your company for at least another 6 months. Then think about changing.

The salary increase depends on many criteria. Company standard salary, job profile, your current role and package, team you are being hired for, your uniqueness, etc. You can get it or not. I've seen people get a 200% raise while changing jobs under the same conditions as theirs.

Possible ... it depends on your ability and also the company you hope to join after 6 months ... there is nothing like NO, you can also change in 1 month.
