I am from India and working in the field of IT(SQL Server DBA) and have been working here in an Investment Bank in Singapore for the last 1 yr. I have been earning 6.5k per month(78K a yr)
Like some Singaporeans love to go to Australia, I am just wondering if I should be ambitious and look at other countries.
Will I have a better life/better savings with say 100K before tax in sydney or melbourne? I love Singapore so far, just that the opportunities here are so few that if I lose my job or get fed up of my job, I dont think I can find another job here very easily, whereas when I did a quick search on Australia's Seek.com.au, I could find numerous jobs with 100K+ in my field.
So Australia definitely looks like has lots of opportunities. Singapore is has its advantages like less crime, less racism etc, but disadvantages being expensive to own a nice property
or landed house and car. Also being a PR doesnt give many benefits, just lets you stay here, but what's the use if you its going to be very difficult to find a job.
I am preety sure of getting 100k+ job in Australia, just that I need to apply for PR before hand.
Please advice. Is 78K SGD better or is 100K AUD(before tax) in terms of quality of life and savings. I am currently saving about 50% of my salary as I am renting a cheap HDB at $1500 per month. But during my next renewal I am sure the rent will be higher atleast 1800$
