I got an offer from a well-known market research company in Sing and the package includes
-2,200 base salary
-bonus includes up to one month pay
-medical and dental coverage
-annual leave: 20 days
Is it a good package given my qualifications:
-Bachelor's degree, graduated as the top student from a top ten US business school (the award is based on 3 criteria: academic credentials, leadership, civic mindedness. my school is in the top ten of undergraduate business schools according to USNews)
-1 year of research experience (during college) including both independent and group projects.
-A few months working at an MNC (not directly related to market research though).
I am still new to Singapore and even though I know a little bit about the average salary, it is always good to learn more from you all.
Please advise if the whole package sounds okay and if I can expect something in the range of S$2,400-2,800...Thanks so much.

I think it is not a bad offer.
Btw, I am graduating from the states as well and new to Singapore as well.
May I know which university you are graduating?

I hate to say this but if you are from a top 10 undergrad business school (per US News) like Wharton (UPenn), McIntire (U VA), Sloan (MIT), Ross (U Michigan), Stern (NYU), then I have to say S$2.2k is pretty much on the very low end.
I presume that you found your job through local means. Most undergrads from those schools listed above who go to Asia are usually recruited directly on-campus from the US into consulting, banking or corporate development/corporate strategy positions with comp packages significantly higher than the 2.2k you've been offered.
I hope I don't come across as a haughty snob but I'm just stating facts based on what I know and have seen.
