sorry typo.. this means that a manager in a so called non-professional field eg F&B manager earns MORE than a professional eg engineer, lawyer?

i wouldn’t compare that way. i guess the right way to interpret is: if you’re a professional, your manager earns more than you.

Indicative or not depends on who you hang out with lah. Ever heard that friends typically make within 20% of one another’s salaries?

What I’m saying is, what most people think as “what everybody’s making” is inaccurate because they survey their friends, who most likely earn very similar amount to their own salaries.

I think the good news to interpret from here is that salary appears to go higher as you grow older. At least something to be pleased about.

pleased and displeased :
Not doubting your words and hope both don’t take offense but I’m curious to know how so many of your friends 30 and below are earning so much?
Are they degree holders, business people, what special skillset or certs, bankers and lawyers etc?
I think this would help put the numbers into perspective?

I questioned the 27 year old getting 10k/mth. if you’re a SG guy, your 1st job should start when you’re 24~25 years old…..if you’re a college grad.

10k/mth for someone with 2yrs+ exp is very high (unless you’re in sales, which incl MLM and RE agent)

Banker. Lawyer. That’s the only way to make >$10k if you’re 30 or below. Not even doctors make that much at such a young age.

ok, I agree that family biz or successful business owner might be getting >10k/mth (below 30). In fact many of my friends working for family biz (SME) get a lower salary than us, but most expenses are company paid.

salespeople (incl brokers, agents, etc) is also possible to make that amt but it’s not fixed-pay. (commission made up big part of it.

If you’re talking abt guaranteed salary with bonus (which is what this website is all about), I know MBA grads getting into mgt consulting or banking with >10k/mth salary. but these grads are abt 30 if fr SG. most of my non-SG friends finished their MBA younger. getting into the above mentioned roles are almost impossible for college grads.
