:think: heh....5 to 6 yrs!!! dun think it is engineering line unless you are one of the few really high flyer.... think now the starting pay of new engineering is just 2-3k..........and based on the current economy situation, dun think it is possible to get 500 increment every year..sigh....

If you are in IT line and in vendor environment like IBM, CISCO, 5k in 5 ~ 6 years to reach 5k no problem.

Got a JC classmate who didn't do well for A level and never get into local Uni

Went US to study biz, now working as consultant for a local bank here, earning 5-digits every mth (with comission)...and he only started working in the bank for half a year....

Best thing is...he going to quit that job then go study master....

Most of the time, whether you get >= 5k is more on whether you are lucky and opportunity is given to you. You can be a grad and can work for more than 10 years, but if you are unlucky, no need to think about achieving this goal. Even if you have achieved that, how long will this "good time" last?
You might be competent but when you are unlucky, forget about 5k, you might even lose your job.

Sounds demoralizing? Too bad, it parts of life. :devil:

doesn't it depend on the person himself

If you are a lazy bum who is not proactive, you can work for 10 years and look at other newbies overtake you
