Differences in starting pay:

Degree Management Executive Scheme $2,270 - $2,700
Diploma Executive Officer Scheme $1,560 - $1,700

Prior to that I've been working in private sector (sale and retail) earning 2k per month.

It is from Kaplan, also I would like to ask which organisation should I be looking at if I'm looking for backend jobs.

I think you mean University College Dublin. Not University of Dublin. University of Dublin (or sometimes called Trinity College Dublin) is the better of the two. I believe kaplan only offers degrees from UCD. Its like SIM and SMU. Can be confusing but one is much better than the other.

UCD degrees are recognised in civil service. I know an army regular who was sent to take his degree from unisim although he had a UCD degree already. Apparently they dont recognise it. I know UOL is recognised for some stat boards and ministries. But I'm pretty sure UCD is not.

RMIT is also recognised by some stat boards. I have a friend who grad from RMIT working in Singapore Poly as an admin staff. Singapore poly is a stat board.

You are correct, it should be University College Dublin. In that case I would apply for Executive scheme position instead.

I should be applying for CPF board, but does anyone know any other organisation that would be a better fit for me considering that I do not have any experience relating to any Statutory board?

I know one local uni grad second upper is working as an economist in ministry. Not that hard, local uni second upper + good interview is enough. FCH would be safe.

Thank you very much! Would you happen to know the pay or career progression?
