How is the interview process like?
Any other tests to go through?

Did you take this up with them when you called then? Did you ask them why they didn't get back to you on this?

I always thought that MINDEF HR would contact candidates whenever they had further updates, and that a delay in an update probably meant that they had you in mind as a shortlisted candidate as the general assumption was that they would contact you quickly if you were rejected. This doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

It will be a panel interview with MINDEF HR staff and some heads of the department sitting in, and you may or may not have to take a written test prior to the interview.

The questions asked depend on the position you applied for.

It's very common for you to have to complete writing assignments before being interviewed by many civil service agencies that you apply to.

Now like no news means rejection already.

I have just graduated from NUS in civil engineering and obtained a pass degree, I would like to apply as a DXO in HR executive.
Any idea will they accept a degree that is not relevant to the position that i have applied for?

Hi all,

To give everyone who has been waiting for replies for some time, i waited for more than 3 weeks, nearing a month, and in the end i got the job The waiting time is long for some positions maybe because they are waiting for more positions to be opened up.

Good luck to all

To those who keep posting about how long the wait is, why you havent got any reply etc, I personally feel that you will not fit into the working culture of MINDEF. This culture is all about patience and perseverance. Success comes to those who wait and can afford to wait. Meanwhile, focus on your exams (for soon to be fresh grads) and job search (for those experienced hires)
