really depends... with honours??... Big firms like Accenture offer consultants think close to 3k for a start... programmer level lower... think about 2-2.2k...
with specialised skills like .Net Developer can get 2.2kto 2.5k ba.... if not general IT job think 1.7k to 2k.... IT market picking up.. :)

i suggestion is to browse through Jobstreet and Jobsdb... from there you will get a rough guide on the salary range... not forgetting the requirements by employers
IT very wide... decide on which area you wanna stay in the long run and focus on it lor...

Depends on local or foreign U, honours no honours.

Eg. my fren local NTU IT honours fresh can get 2.8 in big local SI firm.

I feel sometimes choosing which IT field to go into is more important than how much is 1st salary leh, choosing in demand field salary can multiply x times in few short years.
