Dont bet your luck on getting a reply in december bah. Most HR departments are usually run by NSFs with a few DXOs at the top. Because they work the NSFs so hard during the year, alot of them still have quite alot of leave towards the end of the year. And if they dont clear the leave, the DXOs on top will get fked by somebody higher. So december is the time when everyone is clearing leave, so probably things will get much slower.

Has anyone gone for the psychometric test more than once in a year?

I got invited for the test again after making a new application but I took it in September already. I suspect I did not do very well for the test when I took it in September, thinking of just applying for the test again. Will they just ignore the new results when/if they realise you did the test before?

Anyone here know about Defence Psychologist recruitment?

I am studying psychology in Australia and graduating soon. Been monitoring job vacancies but have not seen any vacancies for psychologists at all for quite a few months on the DXO website...do they only hire from things like career fairs at NUS or other 'exclusive' channels?

Has anyone went for a test 2 weeks ago and been called up for an interview? I know it is close to the end of the year and everyone is clearing leave. But just wondering if there were any, and for what position

I've applied for a few executive positions in Human Resources but I have yet to receive any notice about any interviews, had applied once in October and once in November. Does this mean I'm not considered?

I think I mentioned something about this on this thread a few pages back. Dont bet on getting a psychologist job. Unless you're really outstanding ie. ANU/Umelb/Usyd High distinction honours. There's just too many psych grads competing for VERY FEW psych-related jobs. Yes, I've spoken directly to mindef's career personnel who told me that psychology and defence policy are the two 'hottest' jobs, in her words. Meaning that the ratio of applicants to available opportunities is sky high. Advice? stay in Australia and get experience. Unless you are from on of the top few universities that I mentioned, its going to be hard for you to compete against the local grads. Seeing especially that psych and counselling jobs here are mostly provided by the govt, they will prefer to hire local graduates.

Unless you're okay with working with non-psych related jobs. How are your statistics? Most psych students in sg, especially NTU ones take up around 5-7 stats modules, making them pretty flexible in finding jobs in our data-centric world. Or you could try working in HR like many psych grads do.

I took my psychometric test in Oct but no reply at all until now. Not even rejection, so I suppose that's a good thing?

Anyway I emailed the Yvonne lady from HR to check, she told me should be 'still processing' and if I want to apply for any position just drop her an email.

I did so last week to express interest in 4 positions, and she replied to confirm the order of my preference, but nothing else since then.

Probably year end lull where no one wants to do work/nobody is around to conduct interviews.
