Default DXO Process (?)

So, here's a brief timeline of the process

Jan - applied for a role under MINDEF
22 Feb - shortlisted for psychometric test
5 Mar - went for a psychometric test
20 Apr - got a call from MINDEF saying they are still processing and will inform me of the outcome within 2 weeks
30 Apr - Online written test + checking whether I am avail for a virtual interview 2 wks later
3 May - received email that I am shortlisted for the interview + to indicate my expected salary

Does anyone knows what/ how the interview is like? Also, if I am a fresh grad from local uni, second upps, what would the salary be like?

Hey guys, I finally got the call for contract briefing.
Here's my 5 month application journey.

Mid Dec 2020 - Sent in application
Mid Jan 2021 (T+0) - Psychometric tests & panel interview
End Jan 2021 (T+2) - G50
End Feb 2021 (T+6) - Security interview & FFI
End Mar 2021 (T+10) - Security clearance completed
Early May 2021 (T+16) - Received call for contract briefing
Mid May 2021 (T+17) - Contract signing

The most grueling part really is the wait.
So for those who are still awaiting a response, hang in there!
Also, no news really is good news with MINDEF. XD

Hi everyone,
I have benefitted from this thread and thought of paying it back by telling you about my experience. I first applied to mindef in 2019 but was rejected after the writing test and first interview. I applied again this year, with 2 years of working experience. The timeline for my application this year
- Feb: applied for position and got shortlisted for the test
- Early Mar: sat for the test
- Early May: first round of interview
It hasn't been 2 weeks since the interview, but I dont think I got shortlisted further as one of my answers was not in line with mindef's public position. I guess I'm not fated to be a dxo, after 2 rounds of application and rejection. Wishing everyone here the best for your applications.

It was largely related to the role that I was applying for, apart from the generic qns eg tell me more about yourself
