So, I received an offer from an International School in Singapore this evening. I was very excited about this job and moving there this year until I saw their offer which was significantly below my expectations. First, let me share the text of the email I received with the details (errors SIC):Here is the offer: 4000 SGD per month, with an annual increment of 1200 SGD. No housing, medical "insurance" is simply $20 sgd 3/x a month. No flights included. Here are the facts/suppositions: I was offered a job with the British Council in a language center (which is a bit below the level of international schools in Sg) for 4500 SGD. It included full British Medical Insurance, flights to/back from SG home paid for. There were four other candidates interviewed. I was the only candidate interviewed who has a B.S. in a Science and is capable of teaching Science in addition to English. I am moderately experienced with 5 years in education, and I currently lecture at an International College near Hong Kong. 5200 sounds okay after a year, but I think 4000 is a kick to the bollocks. Any ideas on how I should approach negotiating this? I think 5000 is the absolute minimum I could accept to move to SG for a job. I would want them to up the salary to 5k and include some kind of relocation coverage. Halp, plz thanks.
