Hi guys,

I was offered a role in a SB as a local uni grad, but they are honestly lowballing me with the salary (lower 2k).

I'm planning to work in gov sector even after this contract ends in 2 years, and I'm worried because my salary will probably be in the mid 2k range by then and it will take me many years just to get to a salary for a good fresh grad entry level job (mid 3k).

Just wanted to ask, is it alright if I call HR to negotiate my salary since I already have the contract on hand?

Nope. Its a job with a 2 year contract and 6 month probation period. Salary adjustment after my first year when I advance to a non-training role.

I'm only thinking about negotiating because I have the contract on hand and I'm trying my luck. The upper ceiling for the role is 3.1k as stated in the contract (probably for non-covid times?), so I was hoping to try to get a little more out of it.

Which local uni are you from? This sounds like a diploma level payscale.

Gotta be more forthcoming if you want to have a meaningful discussion here.

Seriously:
-what local uni are you from? (If it's a local private they might put on on diploma scheme I've heard)
-are you joining on the mx scheme?
-since you mention traineeship, what is that for? Trainee to become a lawyer? Engineer?

I'm from NUS, and I graduated last December right before COVID. Not comfortable sharing too much about the rest since I'm not sure if my employer lurks around these forums, but training is mainly for product knowledge + OJT for a support role.

My actual question was if I should negotiate my salary since it was stated on the contract that the upper end of the salary range is about 3.5k. While I'm not the best NUS graduate available on the market, I'm pretty sure that I'm worth at least more than a 2.2k salary especially since I've even taken on a related role in an internship before and am not entering the job as someone entirely untrained outside of the specific product knowledge.

traineeship dont sound like a official role in the company. looks like a internship kind of thing.
if that is the case, then below 2k is possible.
