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.
hi bro, i am from another agency n work with wsg regularly, here are my thoughts

First, they are quite slow, take very long to get things done (doesn't apply to only 1 person or dept). Second, they like to claim credit in the media when work is done by others (folks elsewhere also voiced similar thoughts). Third, they like to taichi and push things to ssg who pushes it back to them. Fourth and the one I dislike the most, they request for your help but are reluctant when u ask them for help.

The 2.8k was from an NPO but I turned it down because I had only started jobhunting 2 weeks in so I decided to keep looking. I mentioned it as i thought it could serve as a reference for the type of offers I can expect to get. I actually don't want to work in govt sect for my longterm career, i'm just thinking whether I should accept this because "got job just do first" or would it actually hinder/benefit me when I'm looking for a pte job after this is up (it's an 11 mth contract)? It's not a very specialized job (though advertised as such), I got the distinct feeling that they just need more manpower for their events and campaigns.

experience before graduation gets you a better chance at getting the job, experience after graduation gets you a better salary for that job

Default MX 13 or MX12

Hi all,

May I check on the starting salary for MX 12?

I have around 8 years of experience in investigation related job with Home Team (as a JO) , and currently the new ministry (also investigation related job) is offering a MX 13(I) only, with a $300 pay cut. I applied using SUSS part time degree.

And typically how long will take to promote from MX13 to MX 12?

Fixed term (I.e no chance of conversion to perm) contract roles in government sector are suitable for those who want to use it as a stepping stone to get into a perm role in other government agencies. Government agencies generally tend to prefer candidates with public sector experience, except for more specialized roles.

If you are keen on a marketing role in private sector, itís better to work for a PR/marketing agency rather than to waste your time in the contract role.
