Sometimes, I wondering if I am overpaid. My salary is around 5k per month with 2 + years exp. They adjusted my pay to the complexity of my role in a startup env.(Multi-roles)

I enjoyed my software development role though...my gpa also not that fantastic....only 2.9

Tech stack dated. Hmm it appears so hard to find a company where the tech stack is not dated.
Quite sure Autodesk does not pay that high for internship, at least for nus and ntu students, not sure about digipen. Was an intern there in 2016, was paid 1.3k per month and its the same for the batch before me.

You get into CS with 2.78 GPA and paid 5.5k as a fresh graduate? That is amazing but seriously you might be just the <1% lucky ones without honors and still get 1st class honors pay. It is true that those without honors are not able to compete with those of better grades because CS and even private companies normally will not shortlist us for interviews.

Hi, been working for 2.5 years, am skilled in Java, Web and Android. Able to do databases, webservices, batch jobs, back-end, front-end. Is it realistic for me to ask for a 5k salary for a new job?

Thanks

Many of my fresh grad peers are already receiving offers of 5k+, even 6k+
So yes, definitely. Probably even more. #knowyourworth

Can you name the general companies or industries where they received 5k+ offers?

I keep looking on the typical job portals like Jobstreet, JobsDB, Indeed, but I generally don't see 5k offers for people with less than 5 years experience.

Most of the jobs that I can find for my scope and experience usually only pay around 3k - 4k.

The MNCs usually pay pretty well. I'm getting 10K/month as a solutions architect with total 6 years experience.
