MY SKILLS = $ _______ per month

Here’s a cool way to know how much your skills REALLY worth…

Submit your resume online on major Job Portals in US, Australia, Canada, UAE, Singapore, Bermuda, Europe et cetera, afterwards, when they asked you how much is your asking price, throw the question back to them and ask how much they are willing to pay your skills and services.

Alternatively, you can simply research the pay scale of your industry or just ask your friends who are working abroad about the ‘range’ of their earnings. Again, just ask for the ‘range’ as they won’t spill their numbers that easily.

Never ever settle for anything less, while other people exploit the harvest that you had diligently worked for and toiled laboriously for years. Life is unfair so always keep your eyes open to see that you’re not being left behind.

You indeed, reap what you sow, thus at the end of the day, ensure that you got all the fruits of your labour.

Do it now or brace the anguish of regret tomorrow.

How much should my salary be?


With the present value of my Skills and the Years of my industry experience, how much should I REALLY be paid?

How much? …Really?

“With the present value of my Skills and the Years of my industry experience, how much should I REALLY be paid?”

That’s a very interesting question because the size of our paycheck varies greatly across industry sectors and various factors such as talent, academic background, nationality, certifications, age, gender and many more. Thus, it is wise to know the key factors that one has to possess in order to reach the pay grade that he/she rightfully deserves.

Your Career in Jeopardy

There’s a risk on either staying in or quitting from your present employer, as we continue to strive to be in the proverbial greener pasture. But like any other ventures, the dangers can be mitigated with proper prior planning to prevent poor performance and results. And the earlier we do this, the better.

So today, just ask ourselves that magic question and research more about the monetary value of the services that we are capable of providing. And I bet that you’ll be amazed to discover the remuneration disparity in the corporate world, let alone, in the four corners of our workplace.

Where are you now?

When reviewing your career, consider the industry, growth, region, demand and other relevant factors of your discipline. Enumerate the benefits that you are receiving now and compare it with the status quo, then give a honest assessment on your present standing.

Once you completed this activity, you’ll be well informed about the financial standpoint of your chosen profession and current industry.

And on your upcoming job interviews and offers, you’ll be more confident in asking for your expected compensation. Why? Because you know where you stand in the competition.

Who want to be underpaid (& over-worked) right?

Seize the day!

Don’t settle for anything less, especially if you had done a fine job and had been working hard diligently for many years. Remember that no one cares about your career growth and financial well-being as much as you.

In addition, there are people out there who just pretends to know the trade but in reality, they do not, yet still, the big multi-national companies hires them and gives a better package than rest in your cohort. If these charlatans have the courage and confidence, what more should the deserving ones be?

Thus, let’s do it now and take charge of your future. We wish you all the best in your career!

We can make it!
