Salary Question

Postby blu370n3 » Thu, 20 Jul 2006 6:59 pm

Hi all,
I noticed that a lot of companies require applicant to submit the expected salary when applying for the job. In my case, I just moved from US to Singapore and I am trying to get some idea about what's the "ideal" salary numbers.

Of course, the numbers are really subjective, but I worked for an investment banking firm in US as assistant trader and my base was $75K. So, if I am asking about S$100K-150K here, is it too high?

Thank you.
