G50 doesn't mean anything. If you have problems with G50, you will not be considered at all. This is more of a requirement than an indication of your acceptance.

I think you can more or less assume that you did not make the initial cut. Interview call ups are normally quite fast.

Shortlisted means it is still pending. You might want to check with the HR people handling your request to see what the status is.

Can someone share the progression ladder for Procument in DSTA.

Does it follow, in sequence of:
1. Procurement executive/specialist
2. Procurement lead
3. Procurement manager

How many years of experience before each jump and the corresponding salary?
What goes after 3?

Wah, writing at 1am, can't sleep ah? Anxious about your chances?

While it is good to look at potential career progression and pay, sometimes it is good to ask yourself why there is vacancy for a particular position. Is it because the company is expanding and needs more staff? Or is it because there is high turn over in that position? Be it because of work nature, unreasonable boss, or simply boring job.

My take is, don't focus too much on the "potential" career progression, think about the present, whether you will like the job, boss, "customers" etc..

For all you know, after 1 year or less, you will ask to leave.

Thanks for the advice.

Heard from seniors that DSTA procurement, though stressful, technically demanding with high workload, they rate their work as meaningful and in all they learnt a lot.

It is competitive to get the role as vacancies hardly come by.

Therefore would like to explore the progression pathway and the remuneration package.

If you already have seniors in DSTA procurement who seem willing to share, why don't you ask them directly? :) I believe they would be better informed since it is already their job, and provide you with more accurate and updated information.
