Oh thanks for telling me. I forgot that Chinese never take english names, and definitely wouldn't use them if they had on an english language web forum.noskich wrote:Well, I do know he s been offered paid relocation to Singapore which indicates for sure he has multiple years of experience on an above average salary. Sorry, but not having 15k in those circumstances highly likely means what I assumed.
It doesn't indicate shit. I know people that were quite young with certain qualifications that got paid relo packages.
Or, perhaps he just went through a divorce, medical or family emergency, etc. Or maybe he just blew it all at Brix during his time here interviewing.
It's amazing what assumptions are made by people who know absolutely nothing about you!! Relocation packages are no indication of how much someone earns, it's an indication of how much it costs to relocate! If we used Noskich's thought process, someone on a lower pay scale would receive less to relocate? Somehow, the costs of shipping, temp accom, etc would be less for them because they earn less??
And maybe I've been offered a position to relocate to because there were no sufficiently qualified people in Singapore? Given I've only been in this current role for 2 years, big assumption that I'm earning above average salary!
And my personal circumstances do not reflect how much it will cost to relocate. Again, assuming I've mismanaged my finances shows a lack of understanding that everyone has their own situations.
At least there are some people on here who live in the real world...

Wrong. Compare a single guy to a family of 6 with school age children and full education allowance. Add to it medical insurance and housing. A car would be at this point a negligible cost.
I was not comparing my costs to someone in a totally different situation, I was making the point that it doesn't matter what my personal circumstances are, it is still going to cost the same for me to relocate. A single guy with financial commitments (whether it be family, medical or other) compared to a single guy with no such commitments does not impact the cost.
