    I say this because I am in Malaysia and I am still in university. And according to the president of PAM (Actuary Society of Malaysia), he said that averagely the fresh graduates are only paid RM 2000 monthly (in Malaysia), which is only USD 577 monthly (Should I convert and compare in this way?) This amount is really low, worse than being a fresh graduated engineer. Can anyone give some comment about this?
    That's a very poor way of figuring out how much you'd be paid since the standard of living is different in every country. There are places where you could live like a king with 577 USD a month.
    Whether you are the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up, you better be running.
