Hence i am thinking of working there for a period of time (prefer not too long) before applying another job. i am also considering applying to a stat board which require my academic specialisation awhich of course is
is more convenient for me to travel to. (cos my previous workplace is also located near there, so the location is more familiar and i can save time and cost on transport).

Thus, can any kind soul advise me how long shd i work in my current job before i start applying to the stat board or prob other pte sector positions which i have in mind without looking too bad? thanks
Just to digress a little, is this your first job after you grad? If so, are you on a contract or a perm staff? I understand fresh grads are only offered 1 yr contracts first before renewal/conversion to perm staff.

No, you can only be made perm if there is permanent headcount available. It's likely that a perm staff resign or your boss manage to convince MOF to increase perm headcounts. If after 1 year can auto become perm, it's called 1 yr probation - not contract.

Hi, anyone has any successful example of public service officer who worked less than a year and joined another govt agency? What are the acceptable reasons for a current ps officer to join another govt agency? Thanks!

I was with 3 stat boards previously and now in the pte sector. my first hop was $400 increment (stayed with 1st stat board for 3 yrs)... my 2nd hop was $200 (stayed with 2nd stat board for just 4 months) and my final hop to pte sector was $600... (just 6 mths in my 3rd stat board)...

I would like to ask recently I just sign a letter of appointment with a stat board and will be starting work in may.

Now, I have a better offer from another stat board and 1 more ministry, can I know will it be possible to sign with the latter one and "break" the letter of appointment that I have signed with the 1st stat board? (without penalty etc)

Please advise.

base on MOM rule, as long as you never attend on your 1st day of job, you are not consider an employee of that stat board even you have sign the contract!!
