Default How much increment can you ask for when you are looking for a new job?

As mentioned in header:

5 years of relevant working experience, all in private education sector.

Currently getting pay of $3.1K, plus handphone allowance of $80.

Applying for govt-related/public sector jobs, asking for $3.5K.

I am willing to negotiate down to $3.3K.

Employment agency ask me to lower my salary.

Not sure whether can trust or not..think maybe they are in hurry to get commission.....

I already went for 5 interviews and have received one job offer so far but the renumeration package can't be confirmed....been waiting for 3 weeks liao.......

It is a public hospital, the employment agency told me that although it is public hospital, it has been restructured such that it does not follow civil service structure pay anymore.

I am not honours grad, but I am on the Dean's List.

Can I really ask for 4K? I apply to quite a number of positions at local unis and local public hospitals? the local public hospitals (for previous interviews) confirmed me but still havent confirm my salary package......3 weeks already.....


Local uni all tell me all positions are on 2-3 year contract basis......

your salary is pretty low for a degree graduate honestly. did you recently get your bachelor's or since 5 years ago have already? what institution? what exactly is private education sector? have you only been giving tuition the past 5 years?
