Default Ministry of Communications and Information Interview

Hey guys, so I got called up recently to go for an interview at the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI), for the position of Information Officer. I was told that I would have to write a ~1000 essay on the spot, then after that be given 1 hour to prepare a presentation for my interviewers.

The interview will come right after the presentation. I was given this info by HR, but I am curious (and also quite nervous) about what kinds of topics I am expected to write and present on. Anyone has any experience/able to give any advice? Also, what sort of salary should I be expecting? I am a fresh grad from a private uni, with a first-class honours degree.

Thank you in advance!

Information Officer sounds like a diploma level position. I thought last time only execs need to write essay and presentation, how come now even officers also need?

The IO scheme (similar to the economist) is a high(er) flying scheme paid more than the normal MX folks.

How long has it been since your last interview?

MCI HR is known to be rather slow. The whole process (from submitting application to job offer) can take 3-4 months.
