hi guys, i have a quesion

Postby badminton » Thu, 17 Jan 2019 4:24 pm

I am a multilingual (Japanese, English, Malay, Mandarin, some French,German) masters degree holder(reputable Japanese university) in Engineering. I have 2 years work experience in Research and Development. After moving to Singapore, I worked for an MNC on contract at a measly 3400/month as an Operations Executive. How much do you think should I be getting?

3400 a month. You get exactly what you accepted. You could have said no, right? So you are being paid what you think you are worth, else you wouldn't have accepted the position.
