in reply to Money is not purpose of my life, but...

For those of us in the US, can you please explain the following terms:

  • European triplet (yes, I agree with Perrin on that, but I don't think that's what you mean)
  • "My opinion is (1500-1100-700) euro per month": what are the three figures there?

    My guess is that it's high-average-low net pay per month. Whether high and low are one sigma, etc, the OP would have to answer ...

    It seems that I really should improve my English...
    European triplet means (in my speech :) three amounts of salary related to some European location.
    The three figures are good, average, minimal salary.
      Your english was fine. The problem is that you used a figure of speech (idiom) with which I was not familiar. In the US, we typically quote only one target figure for something, either as a seller or as a buyer. "We'll pay $60K for this job" or "I'm looking for at least $75K if I have to put up with Cleveland" and so on. The idea of "tipping our hand" to reveal our actual private "... but I'll accept $55K" numbers seems very foreign.

      Thanks for clarifying.

        Obviously no-one would be silly enough to tell an employer what they'd really accept! He's looking for what people would consider a good salary, what they'd consider an OK salary, and what they'd consider a bad salary.

        Pulling some numbers out of my arse, then for someone with the experience he mentions (although clearly the circumstances matter a LOT) I'd consider €4000 to be good, €3500 to be tolerable, and €3000 or less unacceptable. That, however, is London salaries.

        update: those figures are *before* taxes etc. Call it €2700/2300/2000-ish cash in hand

      It also had me confused - I've never seen that term before.

      You learn something new every day :)

      My real idea was to get voluntary _opinion_ of other people only. And, because everybody is different, I'v attempted to be more specific using that triplet.
