so. i'm looking at a role in hkg- relocating from nyc.
from what i understand i'm getting my current base+ 20%-- basically what i'd look for if i were switching jobs....the only add'l 'perk' is 2 mo's housing and shipping expenses (miniscule since i'm a 20 something single bachelor).
now, without getting too specific, what's the range for a backoffice/finance role in an international bank
also- in nyc, the general rule of thumb is to use 28% of gross salary for housing- i assume due to less taxes in hkg, one can generally spend more than that rule of thumb?
looking at my relatively uninformed math- while the housing in hkg is more expensive, everything else is generally cheaper- so me getting a 20% jump should keep me in line with my current lifestyle out in hkg?? (going out thur-saturday, usually spending a decent amt of coin at the nyc clubs)
havent' gotten the offer yet, but expect it on paper sometime soon- would like some ammo to negotiate for more =)
so far all i have is - higher housing, world tax (US)...
