[Note:I can send you my resume via mail as I don't see any option to upload a resume in this post].

I’ve recently joined with 12.75 Base and I only get 85k per month in hand. I’m thinking of switching exactly after one year. I don’t have any prior work experience so my total yoe at the time of switch would be just 1 year. With no internship too. But I want to go for it as I know my colleagues from my colleges who have got better opportunities than me and are earning more than me with same experience. I want the best hike possible what is the maximum I can expect ? (Percentage wise)

Hello 👋

According to your experience, what is the average salary for content positions in tech companies is Toronto or Canada in general? I've checked on Glassdoor, but the range seems to be weird. It's like 45-80K CAD, but the difference is huge, right? Also, I guess they have statistics across different industries and it can also influence the numbers greatly 🤔

Currently at 155 TC in the US and not sure how negotiate UK salary for a new position.

Is it typical for UK companies not to cover the cost of visa sponsorship and to assume that the international applicant knows that they will have to fund the process themselves without telling them?


Hi there!
I completed the last round of an interview (presentation) last week. Originally they said they would be calling my references & then make an offer accordingly.
Today they updated that they'd like me to travel to their HQ (based in Nordics & I'm in London) for the final round where I'd meet the CEO, the hiring manager and a couple of people in the team.
I don't think I'm the only one in the process - even though initially the last round was the presentation.
What are your thoughts?

Would people be up for a salary discussion thread? A way to give transparency for UK roles.
