Default Is it difficult for private degree to get into public sector?

Hi

i would like to ask if a private degree(full-time study in Australia) warrants a no entry for public sector.

I do understand that public sector prefer local grads, but what are the chances for someone with a private degree and 4.5 years of working experiences to get in?

My previous employment is with a SME com with 3900 gross with additional expenses claims for phone and transport.

With the above info, how much do you think i can get in the public sector? I do understand that public sector pays a low basic with 4-5 months of bonus.

There is no hardcore evidence that non local grads warrants a ZERO chance in civil service.

The public service salary is not low but rather goes in line with

a severely structured salary system
your scheme of service (AO, scholar, MX etc)
years of graduate relevant working experiences.

From the looks of it your aussie degree isn't a good school. Chances of public service is naught.
And four to five months? That's possible in uniform group, but for other govt jobs, it's usually on a good year then that's possible.

I'd say, stay in private. You salary is already looking good. Find something that leverages on your 4.5 year working experience

I have a couple of colleague from aussie universities. I have no whether if they are treated equally as local grads but one of them is still a mx 12 after 5 years. I have no idea abt his salary either.

Depends on which jobs you apply for.

Policy-related jobs are usually only for 2.1 Hons grads from local or top overseas unis.

For operational-related jobs, possible, but different ministries/stat boards recognise different unis so private uni students probably stand a better chance in trying for the less prestigious/popular stat boards and ministries.

Private is not looking stable this year, the middle management could possibly get cut. This is especially true for with US or HK based company.
