salary .. how much should i ask for ?

Postby Micheallim123 » Sun, 12 May 2013 5:52 pm

I am foreigner in Singapore and invited to the second interview to negotiate the salary.
I mentioned it in the first interview that I would expect the salary range between 3200-3500SGD.
I am starting to wonder about whether the salary I mentioned is too low ?

Is it good for me to raise the salary to higher than I mentioned in first interview ?
Can any one of you recommend some good website of checking salary in Singapore?

Thank you in advance

I'd decline to 'travel to SG to negotiate the salary', unless they are paying for the whole trip. Even then I'd likely still refuse.

Surely just ask them to tell you what they'll offer? Save everyone a huge amount of time, money and hassle.

[Fight your battle from your own territory (home), not theirs (i.e. SG).
