7.2k at age 39 is nothing to shout about ESP in this forum.

Employer: JPN MNC (an APAC Regional HQ)
Experience: 8 yrs (still my first job since graduating from NUS)
Title: DGM (rise through the ranks, starting as market analyst)
Renumeration: $7.5K/m (basic) + $1.5K/m (transport allowance) + AWS + Bonus (3.5 months ave over past 8 yrs) = 141K

Perhaps, I'm above national average given the number of yrs of experience. But plenty of my peers of same age are bringing in much more.

You are right. I went to the best school and Junior College in the land of Temasek, did an engineering degree and made the mistake of getting an engineering job for the 1st 6 years of life.

That mistake has defined my life till now.

I could only escape to lecturing in a poly. Now 40 y.o drawing only about 120K+ (and I am in a talent grooming programme LOL)!

I consider myself really lucky. I studied engineering but i never bother to take on an engineering career. In general, only being a consultant engineer or lecturer in the uni will earn you big bucks in this field.

I know lah. You totally missed my point. I was comparing to engineer with good brains earning now 5-6k now.

If you are in top 5 to 10% in school, you will become very sore if you end up being average in your career. Will be cursing why did I study so hard for when young....

If you are in the bottom cohort in school, you will feel very contented if you end up being average in your career.

I had the best academic thesis in my honors cohort in school last time
and I ended up with 0 promotions after working 8 years
and I am still graded lowest of the low in job grade
and lagging behind all my peers who studied fields that didn't require such high cut-off points

I wonder why i studied so hard

You are an exception right? Not many IT professionals can make 16k at 36 yo.

In another thread, it seems like architects are also quite poorly paid.
