Re: Salary expectation

Mully,

As you may have guessed from the replies so far, a lot of people post questions like yours on this forum expecting a useful response but without giving sufficient information for anyone to be able to give you the answer you want. So, here are some questions which you should answer about your situation which might help people give a useful reply:

1) Will you be working in industry or in an accountancy practice?

2) If in industry, what type of company (large multinational, medium, small, which industry)?

3) Are you qualified, and if so what qualification?

4) What do you mean by "junior" accountant?

5) Where are you looking for / intending to work?

Re: Salary expectation

We are not stand up comedians but "regulars" that have seen the exact same question without any details that are relevant to give an answer for literally hundreds of times.
Do not take the responses personal, you will start to behave the same after you read the 50th+ request on "How much should I earn", "how much is a house/car/costs of living in general" or "are Swiss racist" question.
If you want a useful answer, give the input the people asked above...

PS: Welcome to the forum.

At least *we* have a day job *and* the intellectual resources to move on smoothly to a new one if / when required.

Thanks for your irrelevant reply.

Well I was willing to give the "newbie" the benefit of the doubt, but sadly my optimism was misplaced. What an idiot.

I hope you're better at bean counting than you are at reading, 'coz you didn't do to well here.

I would have thought taking the 'be more precise' advice onboard would serve you better than trying to get arsey with the people you want help from.

Yes, but there's mobbing of the innocent - and there are dick heads who set themselves up for it, then dig themselves in ever deeper. Which camp does the OP fall in??

will be more than in France, but the work will be the same or even more boring

Glad to see DaveA has been replaced with many other worthy candidates
