Hi there,

I'm a comp & ben professional and my view is that no, you can try asking 3500 with you background and experience. Be prepare to negotiate but don't be afraid to ask. But before anything, they need to know you're the candidate they want first.

Good Luck!

Hi,

I do not think indicating salary expectation in your resume is a good idea. This way, the company shortlists you base on your experience and not how much you expecting - which may lead you to potentially being perceived as a money-grabber. You just need to indicate your current drawn in the resume so it gives potential companies a fair idea of where you're at / might be looking.

It is always risky as you do not know what is the company's salary budget for this job, or their bonus structure, staff benefits etc. For example, I know of companies (esp Govt-affiliated) that pay below market price for basic monthly salary but offer 3 to 7 months bonuses a year. If you look at it over an entire year, you actually earn 20 - 40% more than your peers.

Expected salary should only be communicated over interviews. This way, you can adjust or respond accordingly when you are talking with them and understand their salary package better.
