information about earnings/cost of living
Posted October 8th, 2012 - 6:38 pm by from Warsaw, Poland (Permalink)
HI,
my girflriend and I are considering to move to Austria. I need a bit of information from you!
I am a database administrator/ developer with 7 years of experience. We already speak German, so there shouldn't be language bareer.
My question is: how much can I earn in Austria? how much does a rental of a 2-3- room flat cost? Is this salary enough for 2 people to live there?

Thank you very much for the answers in advance,

Greetings

Szymon

be careful with the cba and the numbers within. first of all: it's not only the years - moreover it's the job description to set the "bottom line" for the earnings (in austria there is a law that ANY job announcement HAS TO state the minimum wage!). but what's even more important: the cba depends on the industry in which the company runs their main business. for example: a company trading with clothes has the "trading cba", which has very low "minimum wages". if you got a job in the it-department of such a company, they will set the bottom-line according to the "trading cba".
the numbers benjamin mentioned are applicable only if you are working for an it-company, i guess. furthermore, as stated above: it depends on your responsibility within the company (team-leader? department-leader?). and usually the company will ask you to proof your former work experience.
good luck and have fun in austria! :)
