Don't bs lei. I know several FSOs and they're not FCH nor anywhere lei. Are you sure?

I am highly doubtful when this isn't even possible with the top MA programs in the private sector.. and to say that MFA > Citibank/P&G/Shell/UL etc is just hard to believe, especially remuneration wise.

Do you know if after the panel interview, the reference check is the last step in the application process? Asking for a friend.

Ask your FSOs friends what OCLA is (;

He got it spot on - although if youíre after money stay away from the Foreign Service or the public sector for that matter.

Source: I am a FSO (and yes, I have a FCH degree from a good university).

i am 34 this year. 8 yrs in a MNC bank drawing 9k per mth, 135p.a.. joined PS 1.5 years ago with a pay cut to 8k per mth (was told avg 17 mths package so will be about the same).

after i join, i realise PS pay top performer really well, i end up getting 19.5 mths.

i was also one of the top performer in private sector (not sales though) drawing abt 135k p.a at the age of 32. but in PS i am getting near to 160k p.a so i think PS pays really well for top performer, even better than most private sector.

I think OP is referring to freshers in the FSO scheme which boasts candidates with illustrious backgrounds due to the job always exhibiting an abundance in applicants which allows MFA the privilege to cherry pick their pool.

Haha, I find their backgrounds very average lei.

Did a quick LinkedIn search - Second upper law school, first class in stuff like history, pol sci.. very zai meh? These are stuff that you should easily get FCH.

I just find the standards pretty meh from those that they hired and interacted. And yes, there will be those of you will say I am sour grapes blah blah.. okay, if you say so.

Iím the poster in #10207. Shrugs, whether you believe any bit of what I say is inconsequential. I donít have anything to prove. It is rather silly to compare jobs, and it is even more so to regard what is said online as the gospel. One thingís clear though, you can usually identify a personís station from the way he speaks and writes. iíll just leave it as that.
