I can share what I know but need a way to communicate off this forum. But caveat I can only share from my own experience.

But likeÖ isnít it called a BONUS for a reason? I donít mind her calculating my base pay by taking into consideration the 13th month AWS, but trying to calculate my base pay based on an assumed 15 month bonus (which are variables) sounds ridiculous to meÖ

Iím not sure if sheís just new or something because she asked me if Highest Distinction (NUSís new term for FCH) is a second upper. Lol.

I asked if me having FCH means Iíll get a higher pay compared to my peers and she said no, itís based on how relevant my degree is. But my degree is literally the exact degree asked for in the job description..?? Weird. She then asked me to alert her if any other company gives me an offer so that they can expedite their process soÖ hopefully this means I can still negotatie for higher pay :/

Anyways, I donít think Iíll accept anything lower than 3.6k for monthly base pay, especially since they said long working hours are a given in this job :/

Most civil service now already 4.8-5k for a FCH. You deserve more.

Is this normal? Or am I getting lowballed? Iím just worried future employers will take my last drawn salary as 3.3k a month?

Advise please and thanks

[NUS, FCH fresh grad, female no NS, both degree and diploma are relevant to the job, 2 internships with 1 year total experience also extremely relevant to job]

Unregistered Hi, does anyone has any connection with DSTA hr or working in DSTA in this forum? I need some guidance. I'm applying for an Engineer/QS position in Building & Infra. Any advice on how to get the HR attention? Tried emailing them twice and sent in my application. However no response and status on the portal is just "Application Submitted". Any advice to secure an interview with them?
