You can be securing a perm role 3 ish

Or a contract role, able to keep switching every few months.
Each switch is probably higher than the previous co.

Ultimately land into a Ang moh bank, get converted to perm.

the latter course you be drawing close to mid 5 given how generous the angmoh bank are. Then jump to Asian bank to secure base with high bonus


In the former route which I took, I only get small increments that are nothing to shout about. And once your first pay is low, there's nothing much you can do when negotiating with those fk HRs

I am also taking up a contract position, but in a hospital. The salary I am offered is only a 1.6% (yes, one point six percent) increment of my previous salary. Is this normal? Or am I getting shortchanged?

What would be the best way to increase your base in a perm role? Switch banks every 1-2 years? Would perm positions be more easily obtainable for experienced hires?

Default contract role vs perm role in a local bank

Hi,
I interviewed in a local bank for a perm role. Now the bank is turning around and telling me that they can offer me a direct contract but not a regular role. They have constraints on budget, headcount, etc. They can get approvals for a direct contract but not a perm role.
Is this true? Perm role or contract, they still need budget approval and headcount approval. Who are they kidding?
Or is there something I am missing?
Thanks,

It should be based on your last drawn pay. But still depends on what perm role you are applying to, or whether that perm role is worth your last drawn pay.
