Can I check with anyone, if I have signed an appointment letter but I've not started work yet, can I still backed off? Do I need to pay any compensation?

If I am not wrong, your official work will start when you report for work on the first day itself. So regardless if you've already signed the appointment letter, you still can decline the job by not turning up on the first day.

However bear in mind that doing so will only leave a bad impression with your organisation. Of course, I'm assuming you're referring to a job in the public sector. Note, you'll be surprised at how fast information travels around when you attempt to re-apply for a public sector job.

At the very least, I would suggest dropping your immediate boss and HR to inform them of your choice.

Hi, may I ask which year, were you promoted to MX 11, when you are with your Ministry?

CEP is everything. What you should aim for is a CEP upgrade as often as you can. Promotion will come with it (though not necessarily together).

What you can do is for appraisal every year is to get either 1 of:
1. Regrade / upgrade / promotion
2. CEP upgrade

This is of course dependent on many factors internal (to yourself) and external:
Internal:
a. your performance

External:
a. opportunities given to you.
b. department quotas for promotion / CEP upgrades
c. the presence of competition from peers at the similar stage of career


Of course, you must first have the performance to back up whatever demands and aspirations that you may have...

Well CEP is not everything if you don't get promoted :P

Promotion is still the one that determines your salary etc at the end of the day. All CEP does is say this is your potential; Whether you reach it or how fast you reach it is variable. I will take something permanent (promotion) over something variable (CEP) any day.

If you're gearing to stay in the civil service for the rest of your life (until retirement) or at least for the next 20 years, upgrading your CEP is a better option than promotion.

With your CEP upgraded, you will be promoted at a faster pace in the next 10 years, as compared to your peers with a lower CEP. Why bother about that promotion this year, when you can be looking at multiple promotions 10 years down the road?

any one has more information about statistician in DOS? i only know they follow a different scheme which pays slightly higher than the MX scheme if im not wrong... my question is how much higher as the year progress?

I also heard that a typical local uni non-scholar with good performance can reach MX10 and a selected few can reach MX9.... can i assume the statistician scheme follow this trend in general but with slightly higher income ceiling?

a slightly unrelated question... does anyone know if economics services take in ppl with second major in econs? i heard that they onli take in ppl with honors in econs + good quantitative skills...but my econs is onli a second major... my primary major is statistics and i will be taking honors for my primary major.
