The only way HR can lowball your is to appoint you with a lower starting grade than usual. This is uncommon but can happen to roles with no minimum estab.

Standard practice across public service to private sector employees is that the offer is usually 10 20% more than your last drawn salary indicated.

depends. if you jump from a o level position/o level pay range to a degree level. you will jump more than 20%. For eg, ur current o level position in public sector is $1,400 to $1,800 and the degree position starts at $2,800 to $4,000. Considering ur exp and after u get ur degree,u will jump from $1,800 to $3,000+

As for private sector and sme and same scenario, they will still use ur 1.8 add 10 to 15% max even if the new position u applied for is a degree level and the range is $2,800 to $4,000. Which means u still be getting less than 2.8.

Thus in private sector, ur first job is very impt because it determines ur next job salary.

I am currently a civil servant (in fact, posted here before so hi again everyone!) and I believe that most civil servants are being mobilized for covid-19 stuffs. Therefore, I would believe that the manpower for the existing functions like HR are being stretched now. So this could probably explain why they may have overlooked to send you an update.

Also, I think recruitment as a whole (whether MINDEF or anywhere else) would be slowed lah unless the position is really really urgent. So we really bobian, have to suck it up and play the waiting game.

All the best bro/sis. Keep us updated on your progress.
Why don't you request for posting/secondment from current ministry?

Long story.

One of the major reasons would be that to be eligible for posting, movement or secondment from current statutory board/Ministry, one needs to be emplaced on permanent establishment. My understanding is that those on contract/probation (my Ministry practices a 2 year-contract for fresh hires and there have been instances where the contract was not renewed - far more than you think). would not be eligible.
