Anyone chose the security track and got in? Seems like everyone have to do the Hackathon regardless of the track they specified.

Difference in offer of salary
 
Want to ask, since a number of people being quoted different salary, is it possible that it vary due to major or class honour?

Should be vary due to tracks? Tracks like cybersec really need hands on experience. 5k off the bat and still need to hand hold in a structured programme seems off.

progression
 
Hi does the current dbs seeders know about the progression for the program. Does salary increase after working one year etc?

Unregistered 18-11-2020 09:22 PM

Seems like Tech degree gets more than non tech degree.

Unregistered 18-11-2020 11:07 PM

to those who accepted the offer, when will they ask for additional information? I am afraid the offer may get rescinded so i have not given notice to my current company yet and awaiting for the next steps.

The increase only comes if you can show personal growth after the 2 years

Worst come to worst, send them an email to ask when the program starts in notice period + 1/2 weeks.. All we can do is wait for now.

I know NTU blasting multiple emails stating it to be 5k. My guess is that different uni tier will have a different compensation package.

For my onboarding email, they only asking for reference and previous payslip. Never mentioned anything about phone call.

Is it really important to put the professional reference?

Based on my understanding, people only received onboarding email after both techtrek. But I havenít done hackathon (which is scheduled on dec), but they already send me onboarding email.
