After several weeks, you finally get the raise you had been hoping for!
Though your close office friend, who you knew was going after the same raise, has begun speaking to you much less than before.
How can you demonstrate your soft skills in this situation?
Demonstrate your understanding and empathy for your friend. Express that wile you are thankful for the raise, you believe they are just as deserving, and are willing to assist them however you can so that you both may receive one.
Show that you value your friendship over the raise. You will show your willing to collaborate with others instead of ring others down.
If all goes well, you may maintain your professional ethic and your connections within your office.
