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.

it seems like most jobs are like this for farmers in civil service or private sector in general, a position has to be vacant before someone progresses on - otherwise you can up the way to say a Senior Manager in the position at DXO.

i think for most jobs, if changing department would also require an interview. they just don't parachute you there because you want to - that is maybe true for scholars.

I have not been called up for an interview yet but instead i received an email stating that they are still processing and will get back to me in 3-4weeks' time.

Able to advise what does this mean since normally they will either call you or reject after the PT?

If you fail PT, you will be made known via email. No rejection means good news.

Sometimes they need to coordinate things like

1. PT results (Psychology Br)
2. Profile selection (Hiring Manager)

As highlighted in earlier posts, either of the following happens at stage 2:

A. hiring managers might want to wait for more applicants before come to interview OR
B. the position you applied is undergoing selection (i.e., you missed the boat to current round if a selection takes place) OR
C. you may have not been shortlisted to interview.

If they subsequently offer a candidate during stage 2B, then you will move down to your 2nd preference, and repeat stages all over onwards. Sometimes if all three choices are exhausted, then they will invite you to apply to other positions

I think just be patient and hope for the best!!

What they mean is that the DXO scheme doesn't have an ROA unlike other jobs. Your future isnt planned for and you are basically expected to apply for a new job if you want a promotion.
