Correct! It is between 3600 to 3800 sgd per month.

To be clear, are you nominated for secondment or did you find the non-parent ministry yourself? Nowadays HR usually use secondment as a trick to actually "deploy" problematic staff.

I found the non-parent ministry myself. Secondment is offered by the ministry not by the SB HR. My original intention was to resign from SB then join the ministry like you but din expect the ministry to offer me secondment instead. I guess this trick is still uncommon since most people I surveyed resigned from their SB job b4 joining the ministry instead of taking the secondment path.

Im not sure if i sld post in this thread... but since there are alot of civil servants who frequent here, i figure it might be a good place to ask for advice.

I just got a notification for an INTERNSHIP interview with CPF... does any bros here got any tips on what i sld expect from the interview?

Sorry if the question seems very noob... but i have very limited interview experience and im very keen in the project topic... so i wish to be as well prepared as i can.

Perhaps you can ask them why secondment instead of hiring? It could be that they are experiencing headcount freeze, and the only way they can take you in is through secondment. That being the case, I see no reason why not to take it up if it will help you in your career advancement.

I am thinking of doing an overseas postgraduate degree and getting my organisation to sponsor it. Would it be possible?

Sorry to say this, but shouldn't you ask your own organisation for this?? Usually most agencies will have some sort of scholarships for post-graduate studies, for officers whom they think are high potentials. If you've never heard of it in your organisation, it could mean that your organisation don't give a hoot about talent development, or you're simply not cut out to receive scholarships.

Best way to do is to ask your supervisor, then ask HR.

Sorry if I sound harsh, but telling you the interview questions defeats the purpose of having interviews isn't it? If you're good, you're good and will ace through interviews. Granted there are some who are just not good at interviews (despite being good at other stuff), it only shows that you may not be cut out for this job. Being in public sector means loads of writing and presentation, to both junior and very senior stakeholders.

How will you hold your own fort then? No wonder the quality of public servants ain't as high as they used to be anymore.

he is spending effort to prepare for an interview and that is a considered as a low quality worker? nice logic.
