If you need me to spell it out then it casts further doubts as to your actual position. Like I said, at that level of salary you will not need to ask for advice on how to nego for salary on a forum like this.

In 2020 MOM data top 25% for software developer related role is only 6.5k+ so not exactly true that its not very high for tech industry in Singapore.

Online research suggests around 15-20% at least, but I'm wondering if that might be too much to ask for as 15% translates to almost 2.5K jump monthly.

Thanks!
If your pay is actually at that level I doubt you would need advice on how to negotiate a package.

In short, you can put in monthly, but always be sure to calculate your next pay check in terms of overall salary and perks. Sometimes its not always about $$ u move to a next job.
But in your case I can see you are severely underpaid, my advice is not to compromise as you are in your peak and should continue to get a decent increment in every job hop. Come 40++ you may not command good increments.

If you are not cash strap, ride it out, try similiar post but mayb slight more sales driven, since you bring in students for your company/uni.

I have a fren in a similiar post but NUS, snr manager, I doubt she earns little, her main scope is to counsel students in career options and choices, also working with private companies for job placements for uni students in her faculty. She is from the same uni as you and studied a similiar course. Also, this is a new job switch for her as she is previously from the private sector. I believe her salary should be in the range of 8 to 9k, 13yrs exp
there is another thread going on here that sr manager in NUS is an entry level position and surely does not command 8-9k. i think u shouldn't give TS false hope.

Yes, this will be the best choice. However, the HR forms in many companies do not allow this. Should we take the figure for total annual package and divide it by 12 then? If so, it wouldn't match the "last drawn salary" which they refer to in the payslip they request for...

Only taking into account the guaranteed portion, can I show in the resume, my current salary as: (1000 x 13 + 1200)/12 = 1183?

And if I'm expecting a 10% increment in the new job, I can put my expected salary as: 1183 x 110% = 1301?

Or how do you guys normally calculate and present your current/expected salary in your resume when applying for new jobs just in case the new job does not have any AWS or allowance?

Thank you in advance!
