Salary expectations

Post New Topic

Hey all,

My company (QBE Insurance) just opened up a position in Bermuda that I applied for. They're now asking me for my salary expectations. I'm currently making around $80,000 in Madison, WI, which allows me to live very comfortably and save a fair amount each year. I'm not sure what kind of number to give them - most information I'm finding says that the cost of living is 300% higher than that of the US. Any suggestions on a good number to give?

Thanks!

Hello Schrod411:

As an Ex-Pat Midwestern American, I can concur that the 300% increase cost of living is accurate. Ask for a pay raise accordingly.

One moves to Bermuda for the experience, not for the money. You will not be able to save.
