    With this kind of standard I am in now. I can't think of otherwise.
    20 years later, you will see any other old man (that will be me!!!) doing his job in the hawker centre clearing the table and maybe washing the toilet.

    i see food courts n kopitiam either seeking cheaper sources of labour or younger generation.
    i rather u set a stall set food or seek other alternatives.

    what most employers will be kind and go along with the interview process. this is the reality now. "pls lower your expectations."
    i agree with u , its the same for all industry, i have seen such cases many time, its either candidate fit the budget or fit the exit door.

    i know of these groups of people , but give me the choice, i will join them to hop for higher pay and reach 4k by the age of 29 then to stick to a company for loyalty. if the company can see the value n offer the salary then , absence of leadership / hr qualities is okay with the mgmt std , y not. more money leh , if cannot perform then hop hop again lor,

    But at least its a good gauge how far u r away from the top earners.
    agree. I find the list realistic.
    it is not the indication of how much u can definately get but that is the industry average.

    my friend questioned me, why accoutant so low paid at only $4500 ?

    Take an example :

    In a mid size accounting company, you may have ;
    1) 1 chief accountant getting paid $10k a month.
    2) 2 senior accountant $7k.
    3) 5 accountants drawing $5k in average
    4) 10 junior accountant (fresh graduate or 1 year experience) drawing around $2.5k.

    The average is $4,111.
