Q: Living on 12,500 RMB in Beijing?

Hi, I have a job in Beijing on the salary of 12,500 RMB per month.

 

Taking off that, I need to pay tax on my salary ofcourse, and fund an apartment and rent. Do you think this is a forseeable amount to live in Beijing for? I hoped that I might be able to save a little bit each month too in order to pay back my loans, etc.

12,500RMB in Beijing is a little on the low side. Rent is a killer. Tax won't be much. But if you forget going to bars, having western meals, dating etc, perhaps you will get by. In other words, you won't have a life. Won't be much left to save.

Really depends how you live.  If you live the expat bubble life and only eat at expensive restaurants and bars etc. then you'll struggle.   If you cook for yourself most of the time and  don't mind going out for a meal maybe once a week, it should be enough.

Like louis said, rent will be the main problem. Depends on your standards I guess. If your goal is to save money, it can be done.  If your goal is to live the luxurious expat life then you'll struggle on 12500. Remember there are Chinese people on lower salaries with crazy mortgages, so it can be done. It's just a matter of what quality of life you want to have while in Beijing.

A:Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results. Employee assessments tools are extremely beneficial in realizing the results are quantifiable and go a long way in ascertaining the work style and behavioral attributes of potential employees before they set foot into your company. In-fact they take out the guesswork involved in recruiting the employees who can work together.  The major benefit of the assessment tools is not confined to the hiring process, but also used as an effective tool of employee retention. The assessment tool will identify the gap between employee work style and job needs. They provide you a road map for recruitment of prospective employees and the further development of essential traits such as, leadership ability, individual development, team communications and conflict resolution. It will also help the employees to make better, satisfying and successful career choices. Nowadays more and more organizations are integrating personality assessments with skill tests, leadership evaluations, 360-degree assessment, evaluation and feedback, disc personality profile and behavioral assessment. -- LoganMountgarre
