I think I'm close to hitting the ceiling for my pay grade and have been plateau-ing the past couple of years. But I think I'm too young to be promoted to the next grade yet, so looks like I will hover around my salary grade for a while.
I think what he meant was even if he were to hit his ceiling of ard 9k in future..he wouldn't mind

3) I was an overseas scholar too, top student from a top London uni. I left in between to join the private sector, then rejoined the service with about 7 years working experience. I was offered slightly more than 6.5k base. Average annual bonuses at my board are 4-5 months. I got about 7 months in my first year. I reckon you should get offered around 5.5-6k. Hence your annual should easily hit at least 80k.

In fact, I think you would be looked on favorably for having chosen to serve out your bond. Shows that you are not a job hopper.
Hi Towers,

Which private sector domain were you in prior to re-joining the public service?

Could also you loosely reveal which government agency made you the 6.5K offer?

Were you on the specialist scheme or MX track upon your return to the statutory board?

Unhappy statboard pay undercut?

Hi, I received an offer from a stat-board for $4.4k/mth

I have 3 years related engineering experience from the private sector and my last drawn was already $4.2k/mth

Although I have a 2nd lower hons degree, I feel like I am being undercut a little here, i was expecting around 4.6-4.8k to be honest, since fresh grads with the same qualifications are already getting $3.4k

Any comments?

If fresh grads with the same qualifications start with $3.4k three years ago, they would probably be reaching about $4.4k now, which is what the stat board is offering you. Sounds fair to me. $200 increment from your current job does not sound like a lot, but if the bonuses are better, it's a good offer isn't it.

May I ask how long would a ministry take to make an offer after the second interview?

It can range from an hour later to two/three weeks. The former happened to a friend who applied for MCI (she was a literal perfect fit for the specific job, so we were not surprised), and the latter MFA. Depends on factors such as how well the candidate did, how s/he measures against the other candidates, SOPs and etc ...

Thanks for the reply.

I applied to one of the ministry. I went for my second round of interview, two days after the first one. They told me they will inform me 1-2 weeks later. Subquently, 2 weeks later, I was told to fill up the G50 form. But they told me the outcome is not confirmed yet. It's nearly a month since I submit my G50 form and I'm kinda worry.

G50 takes like 1 month to clear la. Furthermore if u make any mistake in the form like wrong ic postal code put wrong... they will reject and ask you to resent then it will take another month. I know ppl who took 3 months to clear.
