singapore Banking Sector...

Postby Hallucinantion » Sun, 21 Jun 2009 1:38 pm

Hi All....

Just need to know about current job situation in singapore in Banking sector..... ?

My husband got a job offer in trade finance from a well known bank in Singapore... we are currently residing in Dubai... and things r really getting worse here day by day...

Is it as bad in Singapore as here in dubai????
(talking in terms of job situation)

whts an average salary for a banking professional with 6 to 7 years of experience + with a family (wife + son) to have a descent life in Singapore.

thanks n bye
have a good day...

Things are bad in Singapore, but not as bad as in Dubai.

See the stickies for average salaries etc.

I am new here so this would need your own research to verify… But from what I was told, and found when researching for myself (and of course of what kind of lifestyle you want varies greatly personally) but 140K+ per year would fund the life you describe in a comfortable way, condo, School, Small Car, Holidays, Food etc etc…
