Hi, I'm looking for jobs in Hong Kong and need to set up a "salary expectation", which many employers ask for.
After much research and talking to people in Hong Kong, I believe that 40K is what I can expect for my type of job and experience.
The question is, will this salary be enough for two--me and my husband, who may not be able to get work for a while.
We are planning to spend about 10K on housing. That leaves us 30K for other bills and expenses. We don't like to party much, but we would like to be able to eat out at least a couple of times a month. I also like to shop--not excessively but at least I don't want to have to save every penny like I do now. In other words, I would like to live a relatively comfortable and what some of you call "a professional lifestyle", which I used to enjoy before I moved to Europe. Also, we love to travel and would like to be able to make some weekend trips in Asia as well as an annual trip back to Europe or the States.
Can someone tell me if my expectations are realistic or not?
