good media playa too for playing 'downloads' - stick the file on a usb stick and plug in or download ps3 media server to your laptop/file server
good upscaler - upscales dvds and sd files to 1080p (not great but good enough)
grendel - no bonuses
matt - not actual 'relocation' costs. more cost/time involved in selling the stuff i bought over the last 2 years to fill my new house at a significant loss, renting out my house, buying new stuff in singapore, where i would likely only be for 1-2 years.
in the end i told them i couldn't accept their offer (they would't move any higher) due to below market salary offered, non-permanent role and no relocation allowance. it wasn't one of these factors...
yep, 12 mth @ sgd 110k.
the role is legal counsel, just a team member.
no benefits at all (no accom subsidy, no medical, no relocation), their excuse being they were hiring for a local...
i'm in a tough situation as i'm currently at a tech startup and its not the most stable place in any scenario either. ill pm you prospective employer.
thanks for your help, i might look into the FT avenue...
i'll talk in a factor of the contract fee as that way I can disclose:
- Interviewed at well known US tech company I want really want to work for. Process has taken 2 months. via recruiter they said they want to offer me the job (no formal offer) for 12 month contract.
- Recruiter asked me what salary range I wanted and suggested sgd90-100k (market for local recruiter with 4 years experience).
- I have 6 years experience and am currently paid sgd140k at home. I also...
lol do it eason!!!!!!!!!!!!!
to be honest i think ive been going through the same kind of stuff you have.
at the moment i'm waiting to hear in relation to salary... i need it to be above market otherwise the numbers don't stack up due to the high rent there. if they can match what i need, which isnt all that much anyway, i'm over there!
sg doesn't appeal to me as much as say hk, but i've been stuck in bris for the last 6-7 years. time to see something...
man i'm pretty keen after sweating it last night.
just need them to agree to my salary... the tax problem is here:
because i'm only going on a 12 month contract, i think i'd be still considered an aussie tax resident
Sorry guys didn't see this thread!
I'm trying to figure out my minimum salary to live in SG...
How does this budget sound for a couple, early 30s, no kids, not ballers but want to live somewhere reasonably clean, safe, doesnt have to be in the middle of the city but say within 10 minutes of the city via public transport. don't drink much but like to go out for cheap eats.
Monthly SGD take home pay for me: 7900
Hey guys, got some great advice on this board over the years.
I'm an in-house lawyer with about 5 years experience and not really going anywhere due to resume not having any "brand names" on it. But I get paid decent and have a great life here.
I was casually looking and I've been offered a 12 month contract in sg with a global market leader, f500, top 10 global tech company etc etc.
- Resume improves, flexibility in jobs I can apply for and future earning...
