IT Salary Guide: Malaysia VS Singapore

Kelly Services published their hardcopy of Malaysia Salary guide 2008/09 around June 2008, but you also can download the softcopy of it here. Those of you who want to know how much of our neighborhood country made it can download the copy of it here.

You might notice that the figures in this guide is comparatively lower than those published in the ZDNet Asia IT Salary Benchmark Survey 2008 and Robert Walters Global Salary Survey 2008. One probable reason I found out is that Kelly Services' Malaysia Salary guide focuses on executives with less than 5 years of working experience, hence we can't expect the figure to be too high. In the guide anyhow, a Lead Electrical Engineer with 7 years of experience gets a salary range from RM5,000 to RM15,000.

Lets focus on IT professional salary. Professional in Singapore averagely getting more 1000-3000 in a value of a numbers. And of course after calculate this numbers with current exchange rate our salary is estimated lower RM2500 - RM6000 per month. Ouch!!!
