Hi all, I have been reading up on DXO and am interested to join the service. Just wanted to ask any current DXOs here: how transferrable are your skills sets not only to the pte sector but also other govt agencies? I heard from friends that DX scheme generally pays better than MX (may I know by how much?), but strangely it seems that Mindef doesn't have a good rep as it should for a Ministry that gets the largest budget and deals with crucial defence and security. I wonder why is this so? Is it due to the general negative sentiment of NS, or perhaps the red tape and deadweights?

If I am concerned about better exposure/opportunities and transferrable skill sets, would I be better off applying to more competitive Ministries? e.g. in health, economics etc.

Thanks very much.
