Re: Job offer in Switzerland

i say take the job, build expereince for a year, that is the only way to get better jobs with better salaries. Experience is what you encash once out from education.

Re: Job offer in Switzerland

My opinion? 4k is too low. But expecting 6k right from the start would be also crazy. I would ask for 4.5k during probation and 5k afterwards. If they like what you do, go ask for a good increase after 1year. If they refuse, you will have the Chance to look elsewhere with Swiss working experience at that time.

Oh. And I am in the camp that you can absolutely put some money aside with 4k per month.

Taxes will be extremely low on such low income. If you share a flat etc. and save on eating (400chf is perfectly fine if you dont need meat on a daily base or opt for cheap options) and are generally not indulging in luxuries 1000 CHF per month is realistic.
