Hi all, I have been reading up on DXO and am interested to join the service. Just wanted to ask any current DXOs: how transferrable are your skills sets not only to the pte sector but also other govt agencies? I heard that DX scheme generally pays better than MX, but strangely it seems that MINDEF doesn't have a good reputation as it should for a Ministry that gets the one of the largest budgets 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 other Ministries?

Thanks very much.

Psychological Test.

After applying online, the 1st stage of the selection process is a PT.

If you are new and want to know more, just read the first 100 pages of this thread. The style is still the same.

Psychometric Test. It is a form of assessment if you are applying for manager roles and above (degree holders), they will shortlist you for the PT within 2 weeks from the date you sent in your application. Else, you did not meet their initial cut.

hi do fresh grad get offered dx9b? how much is the starting salary?

how does one get emplaced on dx9s as a fresh grad?

i think it goes by the salary they offer you based on your qualifications. i have seen fresh grads get offered 9B cause they were from foreign U or were female with no honours.

i got 9S as fresh grad with pass with merit local U. male w NS.

Oh thanks for sharing. Do you earn more as a 9S, how curious how much were you paid from as a graduate.

there are so many areas of job scope that im not sure what to tell you. some examples includes HR, finance, IT stuffs. you can google.

not everyone wants to be a engineer, banker or work in a private MNC. they see value in serving the country and do something useful. some value work life balance. some are contented with life. i cant believe i am answering this qn though.. you must live in a shell.

DXO has progression, just not as easy if you are a non-scholar. also to promote, the position above you has to be vacant. im sure this is similar to any company.
