what about pilots ? their pay seems to be quite high when it was published in the papers.

George,

I scanned through the survey report again. It says "the survey was conducted to obtain wage statistics of common
occupations."

So, apparently, airline pilots and captains are not "common" occupations.

But I agree with you - pilots are highly paid. See http://www.salary.sg/2007/sq-pilots-pay/

Good and interesting article.

But if I not wrong, this statistic figures only refer to specifically common jobs title, in details not mention other influence factor like years of working experience or what kind of company and industry specific. Example: salary earnings for job title "engineer" definitely different between fresh grads and person with 10 yrs exp. Or same job title in "big" company can be slightly / much different compare to "small / medium company". Which I can assume, it's more on "highest possibly pay you can get based on job title" ???

Hi Hz, according to the survey data, the Auditor profession has a 75th-percentile income of only $3,350, which is not even close to the top 100.

bonus in different sectors varies from 1 month to as much as 12 months, so looking at monthly salary alone is not conclusive , i believe annual income will be better measurement.
