The economic outlook is uncertain and many people are seeking safe haven in civil service for the stability. Looking to get into civil service now, you will face a lot of competition from others seeking the same, good luck to those who want to get in. Plenty of applications for every single vacancy now.

apply for teachers loh. the demand for teachers is very high right now, more than 2000 vacancies. i have many friends who are teachers, some teaching in jc, some sec and some pri. for those jobs with only 1 vacancy, u really need to be damn outstanding in order to stand up among all the other candidates. u could be competing with 100 of candidates over 1 position.

Have you try negotiate with HR? Try negotiate with the HR for a higher payout than 3.6k.

Anyway If i am in ur situation, getting a 1.2k cut is a definite NO for me to change job.

Quote from a user in this forum:
"99% of all jobs suck, so it's always better to get a well paying job that sucks than one that sucks but doesn't pay well."

Eventually, is still your own decision. Good luck. (:
Yes $1.2 is alot! I spoke to hr she said its the best she can offer. Well I guess for mso is still ok but compared to my current salary alot of difference. I was thinking to try other government jobs but just afraid no chance at all. I have to do some soul searching. Tho money is not everything it is important

yes.if u nailed the right answers (qns are quite predictable if u know what i mean), they wun probe u any further. wad they are looking for is passion and sincerity, wif a clear objective in mind.teaching is one sector where ur grades do not weigh as heavily in shortlisting of candidates compared to other civil sector positions.i know of ppl wif 2nd upper or 1st class getting rejected coz they said the wrong things during interview.

Default Number of Hours Worked? Others?

Most people who post here seem very focused on only the money part of the remuneration package.

I left a job in the private sector paying 10k/month (5-7 months bonus) for a job in the public sector (Stat Board) paying only 8k/month (so far quite consistent 3.5-3.75 months bonus). I took a 2k monthly salary pay cut as well as an annual bonus pay cut of 20-30k. So I lost around more than 30k a year.

However, in my previous private sector job, worked 6 days, started work at 8am and NEVER got home before 11pm, Sunday was my sleep and recover day. I was stressed, eating unwell, and did not have much time for my wife and kids. I encashed most of my leave because I couldn't finish my leave every year.

Now, in my stat board, I work 5 days a week, start work at 8.30am and leave work at 6pm (5.30pm on Friday)! My blood pressure is lower, and I even know my son's girlfriend's name now! Before, I did not even know my boy had a girlfriend! I went to my daughter's dance performance for the first time in her life and mine, and started swimming again for the first time in ages. My family had holidays together for the first time since going to Genting with my kids more than 10 years ago.

So, was a 150k to 170k private sector job worth it versus a 120k public sector job? The choice is pretty clear right? :-)
