been looking at past salary range that were mentioned in the old replies. DX9 I can expect around 3k ish? But some also mentioned it's not as competitive in the recent years, anyone knows what's the most recent salary range now?
I just want to be paid rightfully for my jobscope and my experience and not be low-balled by HR, cause that has happened before.

you should minimially get 3.5k. Anything higher depends on your degree class, local, private or overseas Uni, NS or no NS and relevant working experience if any. A pass degree male with NS should get around 3.9k. estimated additional $100 or so per degree class.

hope this estimations helps.

wow huge thanks!! So if i assume with the minimum grade qualifications - Local uni, pass, F + 2 years experience, i can expect 3.7+? Also local uni is better? (seen some previous posts that they favour local uni degree over overseas degree?)

yup, should be between 3.5 to 3.7k. your 2 years exp might not count for much and is considered same level as fresh grad. i wouldn't exactly know current market rates as fluctuations do occur with the economy/ demand and supply. if it reduced to 3.3k to 3.5k, i wouldn't be surprised too, in current situation.

for unis, i wouldn't say favor, but as per anywhere in the world, the better uni you go, the perception that they have more rigorous standards as compared to overseas uni like in aussie. this is a function of local unis being ranked higher and more reputable in the world. I'm sure they have some guidelines. i know someone who was hired who was from aussie uni, was paid lower than local uni grads, with all other things equal.

- Feb: applied for position and got shortlisted for the test
- Early Mar: test
- Early May: first round of interview
-Mid May: got rejected
-End May: writing test for another position
-Mid June: first interview
-A week later: 2nd interview
-End June: verbal offer
-Mid July: security clearance
-End July: medical
-Early August: security clearance


All the best to everyone in your applications!
