Is it okay to ask the HR for any updates on the clearance process? Or will it be rude to ask?

No need to give HR face lah. Make them earn their keep, this is their job after all.

Just take it. As another poster has said, its free money from the taxpayers purse for a stable do-nothing job. A uniquely Singapore welfare system.

Anyone went for PT or interview recently? Applied for a position and was asked to provide salary slips but no news yet.

In it he posits that the productivity benefits of automation have not led to a 15-hour workweek, as predicted by economist John Maynard Keynes in 1930, but instead led to "BS jobs": "a form of paid employment that is so completely pointless, unnecessary, or pernicious that even the employee cannot justify its existence even though, as part of the conditions of employment, the employee feels obliged to pretend that this is not the case." The only job more BS than my DXO job are the in camp regulars.

I'd already had doubts about my DXO job and there were bits in his essay that resonated with me (some good confirmation bias there). It made me seriously ponder what I'll be doing for the next 30-40 years given its such a stable but unexciting career.
Wow, sounds like a dream job. Applying now!!
