Unregistered What’s the total months annual for HDB?
Today 10:23 AM
Unregistered Hi will like to have some advice if i should take up an offer in one of the ministry.

I applied for a civil service role 7 months ago, which they set an interview 3 months later. Till now i have yet to receive or sign the contract but they have notified me I am finally able to go down next week. I am currently working in a Big 4 advisory for 1.5 years and am up for promotion and a 30% pay increment in July (2nd year associate to 1st year senior). The ministry postion title is the same and 10% lesser than what i will receive if i stay on and it's on a 2 year contract (when i applied they stated permanent)

Work wise is totally different and I dont mind trying something new. I do not see myself staying on in Big 4 for the long term or this particular industry i'm in, but should i wait till july or another 6 months? Which tbh i not sure if i will be enjoying and able to get another offer easily again.

Career progression, stress level , work life balance not sure if its better. Of course if the hiring process didnt take so long, i would have taken the job, but now that im closer to the promotion and increment, the benefits to take the offer now decreases.

listen to the HR. it will be the same even for bonus if you are a direct contract tagged to a perm HC.
anyway, GT is not difficult to get it.

and no such thing abour the phd, masters and such

Unregistered I think to be fair enough security is a big thing now and i believe all are still new. Security span across multiple domain such as network, endpoint protection, SIEM logs management, penetration etc. Its really a wide scope. It really tough to find someone that knows every single components and I believe it take up a team to form up while focusing on their individual expertise and cross domain once opportunities arise.

Even if there is someone that is of a seniority level, they could just be focusing on specific areas.

Right now the cyberspace is employing massively but i wonder do they know what they want, how to set up their soc etc.

Senior is the role that can advise what kind of attack how to prevent. How to configure the system. Penetration test.... Encryption standard. Review process.

Those skills takes years actual industry fight fire. Like in the sinhhealth case. How to detect network penetrarkon... Your 2 years want to o call senior.
No wonder fresh grad also want to be called senior.

I know some cybersecurotu guru. He demo us how phone is used to hack. How to prevent etc.
He in 10 years he also scared to call himself an expert cause the hackers are way better than him.
You kena fired liao still so free never go find job ah? Anyway senior security consultant dont perform jobs like pen test or setting up ur firewalls etc. Consultant is consultant, they advice. Don't disgrace urself by bringing up singhealth attack. Do you even know how did the whole incident occur? Did u even read up on the coi report? Sometimes dun act so smart, know the difference between roles pls.
