a FCH should not and i use the keywords "should not" take more than 8 to 9 years to hit the 7k mark. if u need double digit years to achieve 7k, then clearly ur very screwed up at work, which brings me back to my original point; how did u even achieve your FCH in the 1st place? since almost all FCH holders are known to be smart n hardworking, and that shld apply to them in the workplace as well...
fully agree that FCHs have a good career headstart but thereafter its not about academic qualifications anymore to determine progression or promotions.

in general, good performers progress well in civil or public service regardless of academic qualifications, and post-bachelor qualifications are more about domain expertise, specialisation and personal development.

Would also really appreciate if you dont spread false info.

"in the grand scheme of things, especially when it comes to CEP / inter-department individual appraisal rankings, a FCH beats all other honour classes, except for losing to scholars." This is a sweeping statement and totally not true.

The faculty is also pretty important.

Talk about NUS.

A FCH from FASS is pretty much assumed to be average unless proven otherwise. From faculties like eng or law however, those are definitely above average.

A GP earns around $15K, based on the reported median salary. Assuming a dentist also commands a similar pay range.

Can we say that a MX9 getting $15K is roughly 'of the same level'?

Default need some advice

Hey guys, I am a Singaporean that have been overseas for the last 10 years before this covid19 situation. I am in the midst of completing my mba from harvard(not flexing or anything) and after staying back in sg for a few months now , i feel like i actually prefer here over us as ppl here have generally better wlb and less taxes. As i have been overseas for the past 10yrs ever since i ord, i have no network or anything in sg(harvard networking only exists in us and europe) and not sure how much sg economy and companies has changed in the last 10 yrs ,i am wondering what kinds of job are available here that would suit me. My academic credentials should no issue, bachelors cs from cornell,
masters cs cmu and lastly mba from harvard. Work experience would be 1 year at FAANG, 3 years at a quant trading firm. From my research , I know these are all highly regarded in SG. Would working at civil or private be better? I am not looking for high salary, would be happy with just total comp of 200K+ as at this age , I want to settle down quickly and have work-life balance. Prefer working at the financial side if not i would just be wasting my mba degree lol but dont mind working at tech companies.Maybe i might prefer civil side since my goal now is to just a good-paying job till i retire.What companies here can allow me to achieve all those?

GP is 15k * 12 mths while mx19 can be 15k * 17mths. so what do you think?

having say so, there are self employed GP who earn fw hundred K to million a year. I think you can't compare a GP, civil lawyer, sales line to a salaried employee

So i think it is roughly comparable to an average GP (give and take). I won't compare to those high-end GPs. They are in their own league.

There are a lot of professions which are raking in way more than a MX9. Definitely. Again, i am not in that league. So i will be contended looking forward to MX9.

I can help u to cross out Civil Service. CS is not going to give u a super-scale scheme (to match your 200K expectation) in spite of your heroics over the past decade. Just take it that CS doesn't pay that well to someone who is thinking of parachuting in.Try your luck else where. Good luck.

unlikely to hit your target in CS or PS. you can try private sector.
a VP in a reputable bank can give you close to 200k
