Don't worry, my friend, we are all here to share some info about salary and job prospects. Besides, it is pretty discreet and safe here.

On to the main point, I'm as average as a singaporean male can get. JC(2yrs) -> Army(2.5yrs) -> Uni(4yrs) -> Start Work (25YearsOld). My part-time work experience is very lousy. Most credible part-time job i ever taken was a 2-weeks sales promoter job with Singtel. No CCAs, internship, FYP projects or whatsover. i'm 2nd Lower honours also.

So i guess i got a pretty good offer then? I also just started work and i have gotten to know that the person who recruiter(interviewed) me happened to be an alumni(NUS). So maybe it does helps also lah.

Can elaborate on your part-time work experience?

I have to say I am very surprised. As far as i know, all fresh graduates including returning scholars come into civil service as MX13.

Only for mid-career switch people, then does the exception come (they could come in as MX12 or 11 or 10, etc depending on their relevant work experience)

For someone who has 2nd lower, to get MX12 is very very rare and to the extent of strange. Can check whats your starting pay? I'm guessing $3000 for a 2nd lower guy with NS?

Hmm ya, my starting pay is 3K with NS increments. A classmate of mine with roughly the same profile also secured a similar position(just different departments) 1 month before me. I also met up with another classmate who graduated last year, with a pass(merit) degree. His was MX13, but the starting pay is 2.9K.

Want to ask all the experienced ppl here, sometimes the pay grades different but the starting pay almost the same, so is there any difference actually? Maybe my MX13 classmate will get promoted to MX12 within 1-2 years, and maybe i will stay at MX12 for a longer period of time, with pay increments and only get promoted to MX11 in 3,4 years' time?

If I have a language degree from SIM, no honors, a couple of years of experience, completed NS, what pay should I expect if I join civil service?

1 of my male friend from ntu 2nd upper fresh grad in 2008 july, join MINDEF under DXO scheme (also civil service), getting $3600 starting pay(with NS included) that year.

With a different MX grade, (higher) comes a yearly increment which is slight higher than the lower grade (MX 13 eg) and your salary scale will be higher than that of MX 13. That is difference. Other than that, pretty much the same

DXO pays higher starting salary than MXO schemes because of the military jobscope. But thats for a reason:once you go in, the work experience is not easily transferable. Would be an issue if you decide halfway that you cant see urself doing DXO work as a career. Similar to why uniformed groups pay higher. Its to attract people in.

Assuming ur fren performs ok, he will get MX12 after 1 year (either offered perm or 3 yr contract). As for you, the fastest you can turn MX11 is at least 3 years time. But do take note that this is the exception rather than the norm.

Is there such a scheme in the civil service? Or are you referring to the various teaching schemes under MOE, or the polytechnic lecturer schemes?
