Unregistered I applied for a position, they asked me to upload some documents in their formsg, and then up till now it's been dead silence. Furthermore, I don't see the position open in their careers page anymore.

Is it safe to assume that they're not interested?

Yes. Executives are DXEA. Manager roles are DXO.

The safest is to see what qualifications they require.

So recently I got email from HR asking me my payslip etc and what's my expected salary range and I'm not sure what to put.

A bit of background: I'm an NUS grad, second class upper honours, working for 2 years or so but cause I dumb dumb and other reasons then working a 2.5k job. (Started this job Mar this year cause I scared cannot get any other job cause COVID19)

I believe my educational background and the quality of work I am capable of is worth more than 2.5k ah. But I understand that's just my opinion and companies like to just see last drawn pay.... any advice? How about specific numbers.. 3500? Or just say 3000s?

Annoying cause I scared put too high then they think I anyhow whack. Put too low later they dont give me more??? Idk sia. Help.

Regards from someone who wants to stop being a dumb dumb.
dont worry about what to put for salary. for each grade there is a fixed salary range. if you are indeed 2.5k in previous job, at minimum, they will give you the lowest range.. which is already quite high.

should be around in the mid 3k. if you are local U with NS and 2nd class honours, you probably can get minimum plus a few hundred.

sharing from my own experience, i didnt know what to indicate for expected salary, so i just put a bare min of 3k. they offered me 3.9k in the end based on my qualifications. so my experience is that they dont anyhow lowball. so dont worry and just indicate something reasonable. im sure they will pay you accordingly.

I used to be at your position, a blur fresh grad being bombarded with noises in this thread.

I am gonna do you a favor....

Given your background, you should at least be given a DX9 paygrade. Go ask for 3.2K.

Better to state your upper limit. Easier to to reduce than ask for a pay raise.
