IMO it depends which ministry your major is related to. Humanities/social science grads end up in ministries all the time because they're writing/reasoning/stats(for social science) skills can be applied at literally any ministry. They are used to writing long argumentative academic essays. So policy writing and planning and even HR or comms are a good fit for them and each ministry will have these functionaries.

Bad thing about science/engine grads is that they can't write well. At least they can't write as well as these guys. So your best bet is to apply for a role or a ministry which your degree is directly related to. That will give you a higher chance. If you picked up any skills in your life science degree that you feel can be applied to other positions then you could apply for those too.
