salary range for architect

By qwertyguy

i have a problem with an offer by a company in qatar:

heres the offer:
basic salary - QRs 3500
house rent - QRs 700
conveyance - QRs 300

that makes it 4500QRs or roughly US$1200

im an architect here in manila and i just find that offer very RIDICULOUS because
i can earn that same amount as private practitioner here.

i have 4 yrs of experience as architect in the philippines, i have no formal gulf
experience but ive worked doing villas and palaces for my uncle who is in dubai.

can anyone give a salary range for me? or recommend a good company?

This offer is possible for a local female Architect who is living with her family at Doha, but for you to come from Manila and live at Doha by this 4500 QR,, it's not reasonable because flat rent value here is very expensive to find a small flat with one bedroom is by 4500 -5000 QR per month, or to share with some one you will pay 2000-2500 QR per month,

Min. salary for you to accept is 7000 QR so you can live and also save some money,

Good luck
