Mmm, google?
Or more specifically, recruitment sites.
Just look at the "going rate" for various job descriptions

You will also need to specify a geographical area. Rates vary from place to place and from country to country. The taxation and cost of living feature heavily.

Here, (North Sjælland island, Denmark), the going rate for a "typical" software engineer is about 50,000 DKK a month or in Euro €6,709.63. More specialist engineers can expect a little more, recent grads with no experience, less.

When do I start? :eek: Are you serious? That's a sizable chunk more than what I make, and that's even before the Euro to USD conversion.

you should keep in mind that countries like Denmark, Sweden etc are very expensive countries to live ... But still i like the sound of 6 thousand plus euros :D

It can't be that expensive... some of my more experienced counter-parts in the Volvo Sweden plant make less than me, and I've only been out of school for 2 years.

>>> Are you serious?

Perfectly. I also said this though...

>>> The taxation and cost of living feature heavily.

The basic rate of income tax here starts at 43%. Professionals can expect to pay a lot more then that. Denmark has some of the highest taxation in the world. Normally, either income or spending is taxed. We have very high income tax AND the highest sales taxes/VAT in the EU, 25% on everything.

And yes, things really are ridiculously expensive here. Not always because they are expensive per-se, indeed, it is frequently quoted that Denmark has the cheapest cars in the EU, but that does not include tax. The manufacturers have to sell them cheap to offset the 225% car sales tax, plus registration tax, plus twice a year "weight tax" plus petrol tax plus environmental tax and some of the highest road tolls/km in the world.

No opportunity is missed to screw money out of us.

Holy crap. Nevermind... I'll stick with what I've got. Why hasn't there been some kind of government overthrow or something? I'd think the absurdity would drive your people to it.

Sweden also have quite high taxes. That is because the governemnt fund healthcare and things like that. But I must admit that the system is very slow and inefficient, and alot of money gets wasted on nothing because of this.
