Unregistered Hi everyone,

I am wondering there is any job suitable for me as DXO.
I used to be an Army Regular and left after 5 years of service when my bond was up after 4 years (CPT1 rank $4.6k)into private sector as I was young and curious about what others are doing.
Then after 2 years in private sector as project engineer (involved in LTA or SBST projects), I decided to go into teaching.
I have been a teacher for 6 years. Pay started at $2.6k as a trainee. Increased to $3.3k after being PDGE trained in NIE. Promoted one year after graduating from NIE and salary increased to $4.3k, after few years of increment now at $4.9k.
Now I am thinking whether the MINDEF will welcome ex-regular into service as DXO.
What is the grade I should be expecting and what kind of salary should I be looking at?

Unregistered Anyone got an offer recently? Just hope to have a gauge of how long it is currently taking between the verbal offer and final offer in the current covid phase. Understand that 4-6 weeks was the norm based on old posts.

Yeah haha he or she is probably some unemployed loser whose probably just jealous he cannot get our recession-proof DXO job.

Also what invasion s/he talking about, everything looks perfect to me from my Mindef cubicle and as good as it was ten, twenty years ago, and all Singaporeans are enjoying good lives right now and all senior management are staffed by Singaporeans. No such thing as foreign invasion at all, we at Mindef have done a great job and deserve our bonuses.

haha sounds about right. probably dont understand how a country is run and how vulnerable a country like Singapore is. he's probably someone who has not worked or lived in other countries for comparison.

but I hope he sincerely can solve his daddy issues or talk to someone. retrenchment is not a sin. dont be ashamed. keep trying to apply.

You are looking for some comfort or closure, unfortunately even before the pandemic already the process takes anywhere from 1 month to 6 months.

As long no letter of rejection, the chance is valid.

Even if you start working they may tell u, if clearance fails, you lose this job, we will pro-rate you accordingly.

Just keep quiet and collect your paycheck and continue looking at life through your rose-tinted glasses
