Smile Is this a good offer ?

Dear Friends,

I am looking for a IT job opportunity in Singapore. I would greatly appreciate if you can advice me on certain aspects .. I have seen many threads here discussing about the cost of living and other expenses.. Thanks for the information shared.

I have got around 4 years IT experience in Web technologies and Banking/Insurance domains. Recently I got an offer from one consultancy in Singapore offering me SGD 3500/month.

Is this a good package ? If not, how much can I negotiate ?
Do I need to contact some company directly or deal through some consultancy ?
Will that make any difference, like being a contractor or permanent employee ?
Is there any trouble with recruitment through consultancy ?

Any reply most welcome .. Thanks..

I hold a post graduate degree in Computer Science, and 2006 pass out. I am single and not a heavy spender

suggestions - may not be nice, but read up the forum: this question comes up again and again, and the answer is - you can live in Singapore for 1,500 S$ if you are ok to rough it out a bit, or live on 15,000 $ a month just for the apartment rental alone ..

As for the amount of 3,500 a month - it is about right, but you can seek more if you get a banking employer directly, who fork out upto and more than twice that - then again, the banking jobs are all contracted so you dunno if you will be employed next year ..

I would consider the offer if I couldnt find any other job over a considerable period of time.
If they offer 3.5 u may ask more and their negotiation might depend on feasibility and alternate options. Moreover, it doesnt harm to see more.

I'd say it would be a good start and later you can switch after a year for a better offer.
