Thank you so much for your sharing.
I was told that there will be a test on the same day as the interview. Pretty worried 😟

Does anyone know whether the Head position at EDB is equivalent to MX11a or MX10 rank in ministry? Would like to find out before I apply. Thanks!

Default Advice (fresh grad)

Hi all, I received a job offer from wsg and if anyone has similar experiences I would love to hear your thoughts. The offer is 3k. But I'm a pass degree + degree not relevant so in this case I think the pay is not THAT low. So I didn't think too much abt gov vs pte job prospects when job hunting because obviously I know the good stat boards / ministries won't hire me lol. Now that I have to respond to the offer, I would like to know what the prospects are if I enter, in my case, with a low degree? Does wsg even have bonuses? And would I be stuck at the bottom forever because of my grades? Let's say I were to leave after the 1 year is up, would it be a good first job on my resume? Or should i continue to look for jobs (1.5 months into job hunt with 1 previous offer 2.8k)?

Another thing was that the job posting zoomed in very specifically on a certain jobscope so I went for the interview and talked all abt my relevant experience, but they then told me the job actually largely includes lots of other things (that were totally not even hinted at in the posting). I was wondering whether this should be some sort of yellow flag?

Thanks.

My interview is in the upcoming week. I applied something related to HR.
Is there only one interview? Did you manage to get the job?

3k is pretty decent for a starting fresh grad. As you know, most jobs only offer 2.8k. As it is the employers market now (especially with the recent IBM layoff), most employers wanna depress the salary of fresh grads.

When you said pass degree, I presume your degree is from one of our local Unis? Did they offer you a position at Grade 4?

They do give standard bonuses which are similar to the civil service. Itís a good stepping stone even if you donít intend to stay long term. To move to another role within public sector, employees prefer to see that youíve stayed in previous role for at least two years.

Is the 2.8k offer private or public? I think a pass degree does affect your future at public or civil sector. And also mentioning the specific job scope where a lot of times might not be useful when you want to switch to private sector. However, public sector offers better job security and more consistent progression than private. Private sector gives you the chance to be more successful if you have the right attitude

hi bro

I work in the civil service and my role requires me to collab with wsg regularly. however, i can tell u that both my colleagues n me have negative impression of them. First, their working speed is slow (applies to not just 1 department or person but a few). Second, they like to claim credit in the media (folks elsewhere also voiced same thoughts) when work isn't done by them. Third, they like to taichi a lot n push things to ssg who pushes things back. Fourth, they like coming up with impractical ideas and will ask questions over the simplest things
