That's good to know, it sure is motivating.. Good Luck, hope u get the job

Just submitted my application few days back, hopefully some response soon =x
i also apply last week, maybe we can go for the same PT

They decide date for you based on your 3 choices

Nowadays gov agencies no longer just look at local grads, if u have private deg and have strong relavant exp than they sure stand a chance.. nowadays its all abt experience, paper is just a formality..

is there any non-local grad there?? or majority is still local grad? thats what im really concern haha..
I'm the 32 yr old local uni grad, just that previously I posted as a guest and then I registered an account, I actually started in Big 4, was there for two years, then I left. To be honest, I would not want to go back to Big 4 to do audit.

And can anyone advise on what he means by "by then my contract should end"? DXO is contract based?

And I also remember reading that fresh grads start at DX 9 and move on to DX 10/11/12 and so on.
Does the jump in grade mean a salary increment, or just a title change? And how long does it usually take for one to move from DX9 to 10 and then to 11 and so on?

Thanks in advance to anyone answering my queries!

I applied for mindef DXO and have passed psychometric test and went for 2 rounds of interviews + site preview. I'm now awaiting results about the 2nd round of interview. Do u all know roughly how long they take to call to let u know whether you got the job offer after the 2nd round of interview?

Is he referring to probation period?? From what I read there's a probation period (Iirc its 1 year)? Where if u don't make the cut like poor performance or what.. they won't renew ur contract once your probation is up??

I think from then on its few year sign one time contract (maybe better terms and stuff as u progresses?) Idk.. But even enciks and officer also sign on contract till certain age.. But yes , if u want, we can work until national retirement age..
