Help evaluate a job offer

Postby tarun_n » Mon, 20 Nov 2006 3:20 pm

Hi All,

I have 4 years of experience into Embedded sytems.

I require assistance in evaluating a job offer from Singapore, offering a salary of S$ 60k/annum.

We are a family of 3: Me, my wife and an infant. At present, I earn about INR 75k/mnth in India. My wife is a nutritionist, however has been out of work due to the baby, and I dont see her working in Singapore too.

We want to target a saving of about S$ 2k/ month with a modest living in a 2 Room full furnished apptt.

Please advice, based on your experiences if this is a good salary package, considering the sort of savings that we want to target?

Thanks and Regards
TaN

Tan,
in Sg, in the last 6 months, rentals have gone up. even a decent 2 bed flat with furniture can set u back SGD 1000 minimum.

u have not mentioned which area u will be working in.
if it is city area, then housing nearby is expensive and u will have to stay in suburbs.
in such a case :
transport- SGD 150 per month ( if u stay near office and use bus/MRT-then transport can be SGD 80-100). u can add another SGD 75 for family on weekends. if u take a cab, then it can be more.
electricty/water/gas- SGD 80-100 per month
groceries and other expenses- Since there ar 3 of u, (if u are non veg or veg), - SGD 175-200 per month.

cable/phone/mobile- SGD 150 per month (max).

I dont know further about ur lifestyle etc, but weekend outings for 2 can put u back by about sgd 25 per person. (again depends on ur tastes).

cheers

Hi,

Thnks for replying... first hand information always helps.

My office is located along the Science Park road.

What areas would be suitable for my housing? The closest possible in a budget of around 1000S$ (with furniture) would be best.

Please reply at earliest convenience so I may say Yes or No to the offer at hand.

Thanks
TaN
