Legitimnus You have to understand that there are several aspects at play here. One of them is the relevance of this profession in the labor market. The second aspect is the location of the company in which you want to work. The third aspect is your education. I prefer to review all of these aspects and then draw conclusions. Performing all your life for your boss as a junior assistant is slavery because any profession involves career growth. Without that, you are just wasting your time working for a penny. That is why it is better to choose the proper education for your children as well. I can advise you to look here https://www.listsofscholarships.com/homeschool-scholarships/

So u must consider your outcome, do u like the stat board organization and the work . If yes take it, if No don't.

Compared to a farmer entering a stat board, your scholarship do put u at and advantage in the stat board promotion

People misunderstand the definition of scholarships. They think that scholarships automatically grant them high flying career.

However this only holds true for OMS scholarships. Other ministry or stat board scholars u are just a little higher than typical nus ntu farmer

Hi! Specifically, do you know what the "ceiling" might be at ? Perhaps PSC scholars may reach perm sec, for stat board scholars, possible to hit ceo or dep ceo or maybe crossover to admin service ?

Unregistered As an ex local scholar who also did mechanical engineering. Go for the tech/finance route unless you enjoy pandering to the bosses. 6 years in DSTA is almost irrelevant in the private sector and your other options is to go to another agency.

Starting salary is indeed high in the public sector, but after a few years youíll wonder why you work harder than your finance/tech peers, but earn lesser. Also working for 6 years in public sector turns you into a yes man. If thatís your calling, go for it. Otherwise stay far far away

Say I decide to work in a bank after that 6 years, will i be able to utilize my skills and exp. in EMA analyzing energy trends etc to full use? And what will the remuneration be like in the pte sector after 6 years? Will my scholarship experience be of use? Im sorry if i offend anyone out there with my questions, but these are pragmatic concerns that have to be voiced out, if I were to consider my choices really carefully. After all its a 6 year bond.
Any advice regarding this issue ?

Again, it's based on my intelligent guessing since no one's willing to share.
