Actually, it could be less for engineers that cannot spell or write decent English like our Australian based friend above.

But yeah, realistically, if you are not bringing anything special to the table, e.g., demonstrable processes that you have patented or been part of a team that did or you only have a couple of years of experience you would be looking at around 2300/mo 'before' recession, and quite possibly less now. However, having said that, if you are a regional engineer from other Asian countries), sadly, you will probably only be offered somewhere between 1800-2500 without a great deal of experience in a lead role.

Looks like our OP's chemical engineering aspirations are dissolving/evaporating pretty quickly ... :cry:

And apology for my grammatically challenged and syntactically ill-informed post above ... but you know what they say, when in Rome, do as the Romans do :P
