    Is this a good salary?

    Entry level accounting role - $41,000 per month (13 months pay)

    I will be living by myself - is it good enough for a good lifestyle?

    Over half a million bucks a year for an entry level job? Pretty good start in anyone's world. Watch out you'll get the financial advisors cold calling you!

    considering the cost of living, i think it's fair. don't go overboard with the spending otherwise you'll find yourself in a financial bind pretty quickly.

    if you're going to continue living with mom and dad, then you of course have more spending room but keep in mind how your parents will feel if they are giving you housing and you're just blowing your dough at the apple store snapping up the latest gadgets...

    No way, ask for more. 25K for housing, 5K spent boozing on fri/sat that equals to 20K per month which leave you with -4K in deficit per month. How will you live without food, internet, mobile phone etc etc.

    Its just not enough, ask for more.
