Default DXO - Senior Executive (NS Engagement & Recognition)

Any idea what is the job scope for this position? I read somewhere online that the job scope is actually different from what they state in their website.

Default Interview Result

If you are selected after the interview for site review, they will call you within a week. If not, 95% of the chance is that you are being rejected. Please do not be hopeful and do continue with your job search.

Default Performance Grading/Banding

Hi everyone,

I joined in late 2016 and was awarded a band Z for my performance on Apr 2017.

I was awarded a band iii recently for my performance for 2017.

Understand that people usually get a band iii for the first year. May I ask is my performance for 2017 considered the first year for me?

Thank you

Context:
I am in my final semester in NUS - expecting to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts (2nd Upper Hons). Medically-fit Singaporean male.

Issue:
I applied for the positions of DXO (Defence Relations) and DXO (Media Relations) in late January. I remembered that I had to send in a manual application because the portal was under maintenance.
The reply from HR was that if I am shortlisted, I will be notified within 2 weeks. However, it has been slightly past that deadline and still no news.

Thus, is it common for people to fail in their job application even before Psychometric Test?

Hey there!

Pretty sure most people, esp local u grads, will get to go through PT. already not many folks want to work for Mindef.. hahaha!

For myself ... I sent in an application for DXO post in December 2017, and only got my email to attend Psychometric in late-Jan 2018. PT was scheduled for 31 Jan somemore. However, I only got replies from HR in mid-Mar asking for my showreel (not even an interview). The first interview was scheduled late-Mar. However the subsequent follow-ups were quite fast as HR and unit IC informed that not many people applied for the position (technical specialisation). Received a verbal offer and salary confirmation only just (late-Apr already!) and probably will only start work in late May or even early June 'cos security clearance.

Basically, they take a heck lot of time. (Unit IC said her wait was 1 full year before she got the offer) So unless this is something you really want to do, and/or you have side incomes while waiting, do go on and apply got a lot of other jobs to make sure you secure employment.
