I have yet to receive any kind of rejection email.

I've since accepted another offer from another govt ministry. The wait for MINDEF is far too long -_-
What post did u apply for? Went for PT on 27 April. Seems like tge wait usually will be more than. 6 weeks. They will send email for rejected applicants right?

There are two similar job vacancies listed on their website, research officer and research officer (operational and policy planning). Anyone know what the differences are?

There's an ad on [email protected] advertising an opening for a Legal Executive DXO position. It requires at least a Diploma in law and management and experience working in a law firm (both of which I have). I don't have a degree (intend to pursue further studies, hopefully in law).

What do you guys think the DXO grade will be, and its corresponding starting pay? I'm a male with NS.

Thanks everyone for their input so far. I've looked through the last 100 pages but haven't seen anyone bringing this up. Will try my luck asking.

Does anyone know what kind of personality traits they are looking for? Obviously will be different for different roles, but I'm sure that there are some common traits that apply across the board.

Or perhaps another way of phrasing this is: of those who got through to the interview stage after PT, what is your personality like?

while i cant speak for all other candidates, from what i know, i got chosen cause i appeared to be jovial throughout the interview and my boss said i would fit well in the unit. On the other hand, there was other bosses in the same interview, think i appeared to aloof and did not choose me. in the end, its the perspective of your future boss that matters. you cant prepare for this. be yourself and imagine talking to your much older cousins in a honest and confident manner.

and if you are asking what was the traits we input for PT in order for us to get to interview stage... again, cant speak for others. myself if i remember correctly, i value teamwork and integrity. no right or wrong answer though.. first thing they taught us is that everyone has different personality.. some get things done using cool analytical skills without needed teamwork... some requires communication skills in a team. so even if you put you like working alone.. nth wrong. depends on job.

Thanks for your input. I was just wondering whether there were any personality types they will definitely reject straightaway haha. Guess won't really find out. Just wondering what they are looking for to make it past the PT stage since I think I did alright for verbal and matrix reasoning but not sure about the personality part.

BTW how did you know that your interviewers thought you were jovial/aloof? They told you at a later stage when you ended up joining?
