Care to elaborate what role you are?

I'm a project engineer, mainly working with vendors, did some simple technical studies and cost estimation.

Wouldn't the skills gained from being a project engineer be transferable? What position are you looking for outside of DSTA?

If you mean project management skills, yes. But technical wise, I would say no. I'm applying for data analytics roles.

Your current role is not in the same field, how do you expect the technical skills to be transferable to data analytics?

How much did your pay increase after these 3 years and what was your starting?

Pardon me if I'm asking obvious questions as I'm quite ignorant in this area. Given that I'm a fresh grad who holds a private diploma & wants to find my first job, is it even possible to get called up for an interview under DSTA or even any public agencies by sending an email to them even though they didn't list any job offers online?

At this point, I wouldn't even mind requesting for an Internship.

And if more information matters, I graduate in Cyber Security & Forensics though IT security is my stronger suit. I also hold professional certs from EC-Council too as those were the additional modules in my course.

Appreciate any helpful replies.

Unhappy Inquiry on offer/rejection of dsta engineer role

Hi all,

I got called up for an interview at DSTA last Monday. Till now, I still have not have any calls or rejection pertaining to DSTA engineer role. My friend on the other hand has got an offer through a call the following day after his interview...

How long approximately will they take to offer you for the position?
And will they notify you if you are rejected for the role?

Thanks in advance!
