David asked one question about salary in Shanghai.
Thanks a lot for creating this homepage, i really love it and i can get most of the information i need.
I was totally blind about Shanghai until i read this website.
But still i would probably need some sort of idea from you and maybe also another readers here to help me with my confusion.
I applied a job in Shanghai without knowing any standard salary there through email and surprisingly the company replied me so fast with one question ‘how much your salary expectation ?’, i got stunned and didn’t have any idea to answer the mail.
My job i am applying is to work as an Technical Manager (IT industry), i speak english, japanese and a little chinese that i think is an advantage for me besided my 7 years experience working in the same industry. It’s a foreign firm.
How much do you think i should expect from the salary ? well, sure it would be nice if i can feel Shanghai as a heaven too ! :-)
Thanks in advance.
Well. I have no idea about how a related Technical Manager would expect. “How much do you expect?” is one of the hardest questions to answer during job hunting, especially for the job in a completely unfamiliar city.
The best resource I would suggest is ShanghaiExpat.com forum
Here are some thread to discuss the salary:
According to arnoldchina’s explaination, you should expect 30K-40K as a Automative industry
the average level of Manager is kinda about 30k-40k RMB annually,
plus the double/triple salary system. medical insurance, pension,etc.
for the hour workers is also can reach almost 10K a year
