Itís not a fair comparison.
Refer to the post where I clarified I studied in UK.
Thx.

Didnt you post in the SIM RMIT thread bemoaning the same?

Even if you studied in the UK (some people go for exchange or a semester and like to claim they have an ďoverseasĒ degree) it hardly counts for much unless itís from Oxbridge. I highly doubt youíre an Oxbridge graduate ipso facto you are a sub-par candidate.

Itís nothing personal but you just donít rank very high in terms of employability. Be grateful for what you are presently drawing.

FYI fresh NUS/NTU/SMU graduates start off in accounting in any of the Big 4 with anything from 2.8-3.1k. With your qualifications, you would be a full tier lower at least starting off with 2-2.5k.

Hence, I suspect you are trying to humbrag your salary here by asking if it is ďreasonableĒ knowing full well that it is above the curve or even probably what a SIM graduate would get.

Planning to stay in accounting or finance industry, but sector will probably be revolving around the above company (similar types throughout my life I guess).

For the increasing earning power part, I need to think more about it
Well usually people will request for last pay match, then it is up to the employer to decide to increase further or drop, especially for not too long ago grad. Frankly speaking 2 yrs in the workforce, your bargaining power is still relatively low, unless you jump ship from extremely well known company with extremely good track record, accomplished high profile projects or achievements in work, some "star" performer in school or you have another counter offer that is paying better. Otherwise, to play safe just quote the same as last pay.
