Depends on which prog. Mean and median overall for 2020 is only 3.8k thereabouts.

Regardless, take these surveys with a pinch of salt. People who respond are typically those with good jobs (esp this year whereby there are more programmes with < 30 respondents as compared to past years) and many outliers (say those in IB, Big Tech etc) pulling the numbers up.

Doesn't matter how closely linked it is to the govt sector. Non-govt means non-govt. I went for an interview with a company that's also affiliated w govt. Heck, they even share the same building as a govt agency and do lots of programmes in collaboration.... IT WAS PURE BS! The whole company was built to be an empire for the CEO. Whether you're promoted/fired depends on the whim and fancy of the CEO. Imagine the kind of unhealthy environment where everyone will be fighting for the CEO's attention. Worse still, the pay they offered was $2.2, after getting impressed w my global exposure (similar to your experience). My point is that non-govt agencies can be horrendous because they don't need to follow civil/public service rules.

Now, as for your career prospect, what kind of role are you offered at the govt agency? Is it the kind that does not give you new skills? If the non-govt one is going to help you specialise in a certain way, you should definitely go for it, considering that your bg is in English. If you don't mind staying in the civil/public service forever, you may not need to consider this point. But if you want to go out to the private sector one day, you certainly wouldn't want to be seen as someone who only knows how to write. You want some other selling points from the years of experience in the public sector. Does that job give you this edge?

So I advise you to do your own career research and not just rely on what people say. Check out the career pages of some government organizations which include salary information (not all of them quote starting salary figures).

I have since secured a job in the public sector which pays what I am worth.

Listed below is the approximate starting salary in public sector for male local (NUS/NTU/SMU) grads with NS. The figures vary among the various stat boards and Ministries, but will not be drastically different.

Pass degree - $ 3100
Pass (Merit) - $ 3300
Honours III / IIB - $ 3400 - $ 3500
Honours IIA - $ 3600
Honours I - $ 3800

(Above, With NS)
(Without NS will be around $ 350 - 400 lower than the above figures)
How long do u wait for this public service job?
