$1800 reasonable to ask for graphic designer?

Postby Guest » Wed, 02 Feb 2005 9:16 am

i've a job interview in singapore somewhere next week. i read in some previous posts that starting salaries for designers is about $1300-1600 ..

thing is i was wondering about work permit<>employment pass.. i'd rather have an employment pass which seems to start at a salary from $1800.. anyone know whether it is reasonable to ask this amount?

btw i am a fresh graduate, BA in Design from Hong kong. also have MA in psychology.. dunno whether that matters.

thanks for replies everyone.. i think i'll follow that advice and worry bout the EP later.. it's just that i feel having an EP at least gets me a bit more on the way to a PR..

although i do like singapore for personal reasons i like the comforting feeling not to having to leave the country when i'm out of a job (hence the PR) ..

have the same thing in HK now, after my student visa expires i've 2 months to find a job or otherwise leave.. first time i've been in this position and frankly i don't like it very much.

guess:
my e-mail is tsungyow@yahoo.com.hk, always interested in doing work..

It's always good to aim a little high. Ask for $2000 and justify this with the superior Chinese skills you've picked up in HK (or whatever). Try not to get bargained down below $1800.

And don't forget the extras: medical insurance, allowances, etc.
