          How much is an average 27-year-old's annual salary? How do I know if I am lagging behind?

          Looking to understand that market rate to know what I can do for self-improvement and as a comparison to know if it is time to change my job.

              Hi anon,

              This really depends on what your job is, which sector as well as your experience/any niche skill sets you can bring to the table.

              You might want to refer to salary guides such as

              For an idea.

                  It really depends on the industry!

                  1. Objectively - you can check for industry averages here: https://www.michaelpage.com.sg/sites/michaelpage.com.sg/files/Singapore_MP_Salary_Benchmark_2019_ALL_web_0.pdf
                  2. Your salary is not the only indicator to see if you are lagging or not. Given that you mentioned self-improvement - you can assess your own skills and see where you are lacking. Given that you are 27 and have had several years of experience working already, you now also have a better sense of what you like and what you don't; what you're good at and what you're not.

                  3, Speak to your boss (especially if they are supportive) on the areas in which you can do better and step up.

                      Depends on industries and also qualification. Working should be for more than the salary. If you are...
