i think your consultancy might be the mickey mouse type like mine previously(squire mech or JRP perhaps)
I have gotten SCEM and is the registered energy manager of my company's 3 plants implementing energy saving initiatives and energy improvement programme. However, it is seen as an addition to my current job scope and there is no additional increment to my salary.

I have checked out some companies, they include energy management as part of maintenance engineer duties.

I am still looking for a decent salary job and maybe try to earn a PE license in the future.

People like us without honours degree have to slog it out and hope God/Buddha to be merciful and guide our fate.

I hear safety pays well. My colleague one year older than me has double my pay.

I do have scem too which acquired recently. Currently looking to take up professional courses such as water efficiency manager, fire safety manager etc to enhance my portfolio. Also considering master of science (mech eng) in the near future.
I have been involved in energy related companies for the past 5 years. Only recently switch to developer as a manager. Earning a decent pay of mid $5,000 with good benefits and bonus.

That's very good. So energy related job? That is quite a huge jump :)

How have you been? It has been one year since then. How is stat board work as compared to your private experience?

Don't worry.

For those retrenched ex-PMETs out there, such as ex-engineers and ex-bankers, do not be sad. Instead of worrying so much, you can just retire assuming you no longer have any dependents at age 55.

Good retirement plan in KL or Penang for a 55 years old retired couple.

Passive income
Rent out fully paid HDB flat S$2.5k pm or RM7.5k pm

KL or Penang cost of living
Rent a 2 bedroom condominium RM1.5k pm
Car expenses RM500 pm (assume buy used car in cash RM30k)
Food, groceries and utilities RM1.5k pm
Misc RM1k pm
Total spending RM4.5k pm
Savings RM3k pm

This retirement plan allows you to live in a condo and drive a car.

Your key retirement asset: HDB flat (we are very fortunate since we all get to buy cheap BTO HDB flats when we got married)

Was recently offered 6k basic, up from 4.3k that I'm getting now. With 4 years experience.
Sounds good I guess, but just concerned about the prospect; is this salary growth sustainable?
It's hard for me to imagine companies paying more than 8K or 10K for an engineering related job (although i'm doing presales so perhaps it pays better than normal engineering). I'm hoping to eventually move into management but wondering at what age that would happen..

Hi guys, check with you all on something. I am mechanical engineer trained and mainly doing project management work in a construction company. Total experience is about 7 years since graduation.

Currently drawing 8.9k and I was just given a verbal offer of 11k by a company doing mainly engineering sales for specialized construction equipment. The offer is very tempting, but I have never done sales before and worried that if it doesn't work out, it will be quite hard to go back into project management.

Anyone has similar dilemma before? Any thoughts?
