I'd say, stay in private. You salary is already looking good. Find something that leverages on your 4.5 year working experience
Private is not looking stable this year, the middle management could possibly get cut. This is especially true for with US or HK based company.

BubblesAirHead Thank you guys for all your input.

I have been asked to go for an interview.

Given my experiences and my qualification, what do you think i could go for?

Unregistered Depends on which jobs you apply for.

Policy-related jobs are usually only for 2.1 Hons grads from local or top overseas unis.

For operational-related jobs, possible, but different ministries/stat boards recognise different unis so private uni students probably stand a better chance in trying for the less prestigious/popular stat boards and ministries.

Unregistered I have a couple of colleague from aussie universities. I have no whether if they are treated equally as local grads but one of them is still a mx 12 after 5 years. I have no idea abt his salary either.

I do understand that public sector prefer local grads, but what are the chances for someone with a private degree and 4.5 years of working experiences to get in?

My previous employment is with a SME com with 3900 gross with additional expenses claims for phone and transport.

With the above info, how much do you think i can get in the public sector? I do understand that public sector pays a low basic with 4-5 months of bonus.

There is no hardcore evidence that non local grads warrants a ZERO chance in civil service.

The public service salary is not low but rather goes in line with

a severely structured salary system
your scheme of service (AO, scholar, MX etc)
years of graduate relevant working experiences.
