There will be two recruitment talks taking place in October:

1. Officials from the Public Service Commission Secretariat will be
hosting an interaction session on 17 October (Tuesday) at 4 pm on
campus to introduce the new initiatives and opportunities available in
the Singapore Civil Service. These include the Mid-term Scholarships
and the Civil Service Internship Programme which are available to
non-scholar undergraduates.

If you are keen on finding out more, please RSVP to Ms Chai Lee Yee,
Development Executive, Public Service Commission Secretariat at
chai_lee_yee (at) before 18 September. Refreshments will be
provided and details of the venue will be confirmed later.

2. Contact Singapore, in collaboration with the Monetary Authority of
Singapore, is organising a series of recruitment sessions for some
Singapore-based banks across cities and campuses in the USA. They will
be at Chicago on 20 October. You can consider making a stop there on
the way to Wisconsin, which is where the Midwest Festival will be held
on 21 October. For more information and to register, go to

So, make yourself valuable to the country by not studying in the local institutions of higher learning.

Is it a coincidence that PSC is giving out many fewer scholarships and then making the effort to recruit undergraduates in selected universities?

This is OT but thought this news might interest people:

“It just feels ugly, the way it is now,” said one of the participants, Robert Weisbuch, the president of Drew University in Madison, N.J., while reviewing the sessions a few weeks later. “How do we remain competitive, which is a good thing in many ways, and yet at the same time try to make more rational and less fetishized this whole process for students and families?”

Patrick T. Harker, dean of the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, said: “Some of the behavior that institutions engage in is quite unbelievable. There are perverse behaviors that get generated where people do things to drive the rankings.”


“Now everybody is obsessed with the idea of getting into a name-brand school,” he said. “The universities cannot do nearly as good a job as the colleges I like.”

Fox - They probably realise it is cheaper to do that. Furthermore, those whom they can attract back are probably genuinely interested in *serving* the country.
