Had a 1st class in mech engineering from NUS, had various achievements such as UROP. Worked for roughly 4 months after graduate this Aug in a big name MNC.

Just got an offer to join a statboard and they think my profile fits them. They made an offer of $4050 to me. Should join?

Am hesitating as the MNC I am working for is huge and prospects are good but chiong like mad. Clocked nearly 80 hours a week. Statboard chill, good pay and increment nice as my base as fresh grad is thick.

Sorry to be brutally honest your 3rd class honors won't even get you an interview with a ministry.

Default Mid career entry

Hi,

I was offered a job in the PMO and have some questions.

1) I was offered a slight increment (MX 11, mid 6k) over my current pay and was told that there is a hard limit on the possible pay increase. Is this true?

2) From a brief look through this thread, it seems that the increment posters enjoyed is higher than what is typical in the PMO (I asked when they made the offer). Less increment in the PMO?

3) Can I only expect a token increment in the first year?

4) Assuming above average performance, how long to the first promotion?

5) It's obvious that scholars will do better. Anyone with stories of high-flying farmers?

thanks, MidCareer

Every HR will try to negotiate to give as little as possible.

2) From a brief look through this thread, it seems that the increment posters enjoyed is higher than what is typical in the PMO (I asked when they made the offer). Less increment in the PMO?

3) Can I only expect a token increment in the first year?

Yes, less than $200

4) Assuming above average performance, how long to the first promotion?

3-5 years to MX10.

5) It's obvious that scholars will do better. Anyone with stories of high-flying farmers?

Yes, it is possible to become MX9 by the age of 40 for high flying non-scholars.

thanks, MidCareer[/QUOTE]

33 this year, male. Made some sub-optimal (money-wise) career decisions. Am lucky the civil service offered higher pay despite not so relevant experience.

How do you rate your progression in the civil service?

Degree only determines your starting pay. You'll be assessed based on potential and performance after you've joined.

Only if it's relevant and useful to the positions that you've applied for. MBA is no count.[/QUOTE]

Thanks. But I have been hearing people saying that the career progression is determined by your degree. Someone above just posted getting $4,050 offer with just 4 months of working experience due to his good degree.

I believe it is tough for people without honors or 3rd class.

CS offered higher pay becos your last drawn was below market rate. Otherwise, the norm is mostly cut, esp for those coming from foreign banks.

For those without good honors: All is not lost.

If you're just fresh out from school, every ministry has a large pool of candidates to select from. Those with less than stellar results are likely to get filtered out. Here are some creative tips to get noticed.
1) Gain relevant work experience
2) Actively seek out internship in the organisations that you're interested in.
3) Use social media. LinkedIn your potential bosses & colleagues.
4) Showcase your works & professional knowledge through blogs, microblogs, websites, professional forums etc.
5) Join volunteer networks organised by the respective agencies.
6) More ....
