Can be as fast as 1 week and as slow as 1-2 months because HR does not select you. They send your profile to the hiring managers for selection and HR decides when they want to do the interview when they are free

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!!

Dx 9-11 you may not have anyone reporting to you. NSF not counted. You may have 10 or none.

Your external title is am M SM, but your internal title is simply officer, or deputy head, or head.

Most roles of DX is not to manage subordinates, but to coordinate with various stakeholders. These stakeholders usually don't report to you, but you will lean on the rank of the person you report to, and play rank to get things done.

SAF has way to many departments and way too many layers due to nuances in procedures. Every simple thing needs minimum 3 approvals and you must know who are these 3 in order to do things fast. Sometimes even the person u want things from don't know who need to approve. Then you must know otherwise its stuck there.

But yes I understand title matters for bragging rights and for re-entering private subsequently.

if you manage to 'pass' your probation, you will get about a $200 confirmation increment.

MI is separate and will start from April. pro-rated if you have not reached 1 year by April. For your estimate, after in service 3 years, you will probably have an total increase of about 1k, assuming C grades.

Thanks for the information.

Does that mean that when i reach 1 year mark, then my MI will be full 100%?

Say if i join in June, then MI will be 50% prorated since I only worked half the year, and 100% after i pass the 1 year mark?

yes. but i think its counts from April to April. so if you join in June, you will have 10 months of prorated MI.
