You so strange ďi donít think itís that high thoughĒ, yup you asked for it and i gave a quote then you quote anotherís ministry and stat board range. Then you want us to confirm again? MINDEF is a defence agency so on average you pay may be paid higher than the rest.

If you follow the post one of our experienced dxo here shared that he got 3.9 without a fch few years ago.

Anyway , you should take with a grain of salt, and shouldnít believe me cause i donít want you to be rejecting jobs if you are not paid as much as what i quoted - i donít know if there are other things that influence your pay. Well honestly just put whatever you want they have a formula, too much they will tell you but they wonít underpay you if they are employing you.

Lol. On average, MINDEFís payscale tends be a little higher than the rest of civil service executive scheme (non specialised role). Just FYI, MINDEFís stat board can go as high as 5k for a fresh grad given your comparison to the most relevant Ďstat boardsí under MINDEF.

And why are graduates so scared of being underpaid these days? I agree that MINDEF wonít underpay you for your qualification. If you have friends getting higher, it would mean that they have something else to offer to the hiring dept which they think is worth paying higher for, keeping all else constant.

Young lady, if you want to ask for advice, appreciate them even if you donít believe after hearing Ďhearsaysí. No wonder people say that fresh grads these days are cmi.

My 2 cents.

Storytime!!

I enjoyed my National Service, having worked in a semi-office, semi-field environment, and imagined that being a DXO would be the same. That was why I wanted to become a DXO when I graduate.

I graduated just recently - 2nd upper from NUS. In February, I applied for the DXO scheme and listed Defence Relations as my first choice followed by Media Relations as my second. Funny thing was that my academic career was more suited to be a Defence Relations Manager (studied Political Science).

When I went to take my Psychometric Test though, I saw that they put me under Media Relations in the sign-in sheet. I was shocked, but I didn't complain much because hey at least I have a foot in MINDEF right? Or so I thought. The PT was relatively okay for me, though that was on 28 February.

After many months of chasing them, they told me last week that I was not further shortlisted for interview. I don't know whether it was the standard rejection letter template but they added that my application was "favourable" and would like to retain my records in the system. Additionally, they welcomed me to try for another position.

I just re-applied. Was just gauging my chances because I really want to become a DXO because I think it would be a meaningful career. Don't really mind the OT or the hardwork

The way MINDEF selects people seems pretty random - I know a first-class honors student with a mastery in a third language being rejected after the site preview round. Another dude with only a second-upper got in for the same position albeit different sitting. Pretty scary.
Out of curiosity, did you get a DXO job in the end?
