Can anyone please advice me on this.

I stupidly gave the interviewer too low a figure for my expected pay, ~$2.7k. Is it possible the company might offer me higher than my expected?

Yea. I suggest you tell them on your next interview or if that was the last or only interview, call that and tell them that you are not comfortable with the starting salary. Just admit that you have made a mistake of quoting a low starting salary. MNCs are usually open for discussion.

Should I wait for the job offer before contacting them or should I wait for them to contact me jest?

Sorry I meant should I wait for the job offer first or should I contact them beforehand?

Oh. Then wait for them to contact you. Because you might not even be shortlisted at the first place. If they happened to call you then you highlight to them that you wanted to amend the starting salary that you quoted last time. If they call you means they are interested to hire you then will come the salary package discussion. For MNCs even you sometimes quote low they might no want you because you are not suitable.

I graduated 1 year and 8 month ago from NUS, with a starting pay of 2800 in a MNC EPC firm. Now my salary is 3700 monthly excluding AWS. I was thinking of making a change esp. after reading so many posts same like here. But my motivation at work is my manager who is in early 30's and drives around with a BMW. He is the project manager for 3 to 4 projects and frequency of flight is around once a week. And he is not even from a engineering background.
He tells me that one have really to "perform" if he want promotion and increasement kind of stuff. I think that applies for every industry. You have to perform well then you begin bringing projects for your boss and make money.
Please remember average income in Sg is around 3 to 4 k. And a lot engineer in senior position in my company earns 15k to 20k monthly (of course they know how to bring money to the company exactly with their specialities.)

Easier said then done. Most engineers are introvert and have problem even striking simple business conversation much less ask them to sell mega deals.

Asking engineers to be top performing salesman to bring in projects is as easy as asking salesman to do complex mathematical modelling - not gonna happen for 98% peeps.

I agree with u too, engineer managers surely earn substantial salary every month. There may be several dozens of managers in a big company, but without a doubt, there will be even more normal staffs in a company, you must be the most standout to become one of them.....if nt, you will stuck by earning peanuts every month......:D The likelihood of becoming one of them in the early 30s is sometimes considered low unless you are really good in this field....
