I think you just have to wait till they contact you again or send you official rejection.

Read from here that after HR gives their verbal offer there will be security clearance which might take 2 months. Nothing is confirmed till you sign the contract. Is it ok to continue with job hunt, and even reject the dxo role at clearance stage if you find another position suitable?

Hi all, I have been reading up on DXO and am interested to join the service. Just wanted to ask any current DXOs here: how transferrable are your skills sets not only to the pte sector but also other govt agencies? I heard from friends that DX scheme generally pays better than MX (may I know by how much?), but strangely it seems that Mindef doesn't have a good rep as it should for a Ministry that gets the largest budget and deals with crucial defence and security. I wonder why is this so? Is it due to the general negative sentiment of NS, or perhaps the red tape and deadweights?

If I am concerned about better exposure/opportunities and transferrable skill sets, would I be better off applying to more competitive Ministries? e.g. in health, economics etc.

Thanks very much.

Ya, I think likely no chance. I took my PT on 4 Sep and I emailed to ask status, they also told me still processing.

Hello! I'm the original poster on the position for psychologist after PT on 28th Aug. I just got a call for an interview next week, so they can take up to 3-4 weeks to contact you after the PT apparently

Hi, may I know how the promotion system works? I understand that within each rank there are bands b/s/p? For example, if you are at DX9s, do you get promoted to DX9p after ~2 yrs or straight to DX10b?

TIA!
