True. But it is only worse in market research.

Not really. I got an offer for a social media marketing few months ago - 2Y contract 2.4k for a well known european auto company. Tried to negotiate but the HR tell me take it or leave it. In the end went for a job in the public sector and got 3.5k.

Yeah but threadstarter didn't say he was considering jobs in the public sector. If he said market research vs digital marketing vs public sector - of course public sector will pay the highest. Especially if you are a guy. But public sector isn't everyone's cup of tea so I didn't recommend it to him (or her). And salary isn't everyone's primary concern (it wasn't mine, at least, not when I was a fresh grad).

That said, 2.4k is sad. That's what I earned when I graduated 7 years ago (well known japanese electronics company) and I had a perm contract. I'm guessing the company is volkswagen?

BMW actually. But ur right, the offer was really pathetic especially coming from a MNC. At first I thought the HR was just trying to start low for negotiation, but the lady just told me take it or leave it in an arrogant manner, also claims she has already shortlisted a few other candidates even if I reject.

I manage to drag them until a ministry got back to me with offer then told her to fark off.
