I graduated from uni around 4 months ago (2nd lower).

Been looking for jobs while working freelance for a magazine firm. I have been offered a perm position at the mag firm, but the starting salary is 2.5k. At the same time, I have been called up to attend a first round interview for the position of Research Officer.

Does anyone roughly know the job scope, interview requirements for this posting? Not entirely sure whether I should try out for the interview. I did consider signing the offer at the mag firm, and have been pressed to do so. I feel like giving in because it's been 4 months since I have grad, and it sucks to be at home not doing anything.

At the same time, the stability and high starting salary of the DXO posting really speaks out to me.

Is the job itself mind-numbing? From the first interview to signing of offer (assuming one does get through), how long does the entire procedure take?
If im not mistaken, you will be paid at least 3.2k for second lower.
The whole process will take at least 2 months. So just try out for the interview.

Okay... I think I will. But anyway what does one need to prepare for the interview? Because the specifics of my job scope will only be released in the interview, so I'm not sure how I shld prepare for it.

Care to share what type of banking role? Actually not all banking roles are good, just that ppl might feel good working for banks that's all.

Anyone doing logistics in Mindef? Is the skill transferable to private sector in the future? What sorta system/software do they use? SAP?

It's commercial loans actually. Anyway, I rejected dbs. Im gonna be in dxo! Now they r gonna clear me on security and medical checks.

Just a refresher: I applied for dxo HR in late june. Got called to go for psychometric test about 1.5weeks later. Then they informed me abt panel interview 5 weeks after the test. Got called up the next morning to arrange for site preview. Offered on the day itself.
