    seriously i don't feel it also...if more jobs are available, then i would have change my current job already.
    either some of the job are over-specialised or the ppl interviewing for the job are not relevantly qualified.

    more like filling up the vacancy due to retrenchment during the downturn.

    I never believe in such surveys reported in S'pore newspapers. I only read them for amusement.

    My company just announce pay frozen for another year! Looks like we might be in the minority when the survey was done or was not surveyed at all.

    i don't think so. in fact some of the so call positive reports are not truely positive. Like company cut down on operating costs therefore report better profit? and also some are like what they call low quality earning and not the major deal type. hmm...after 3 days of consecutive correction despite the so call better report release...i really have doubt in this....what is worse is the banks so call froze all tuition loan repayment last year due to crisis and this year they are charging 5%...my gosh..that is like collect everything back with more interest...so wrong... i just heard this from my sis....

    Thanks for the link. I will print it out and bring it along for interviews. I will show it to the HR people when they keep asking me "is your expected salary negotiable?" "What is the lowest salary you can accept?"

    Strangely, what is reported in the papers is usually quite dissociated with reality. Economy looking up, but still pay freeze, no increments, bonus cuts....but keep reporting property price climbing....
    I have a near-mint Olympus E-620 Underwater Case for Sale. PM me for a great deal!

    depending on how desperate you are

    the right answer would be: ask the question back.

    also can reply:
    If I am hired based on my capability, experience and expertise then I expect to be paid based on that (proportionate to market value). If my payment is discounted then will the company accept it if I apply discount to my work as well, just so there is a fair trade?

    My sentiments too. I think the report is selective and does not represent the general population and may be used as some sort of agenda supporting tools for some higher causes that is coming soon.

    I'm reading this over and over in the last 3 weeks in the main papers:

    "GDP has grown since last quarter," "Unemployment has subsided," "Integrated resort has began training staff (since hiring without paying them for the last 5 months without paying them)," "Employers are hiring and wages are likely to increase."

    Job well done? Changes in compensations for the top managers? Board of Directors meeting soon?
