No. ISM is too back office. Dershing's IT grad means respectable Computer Science grads from MIT, etc.

Hi, does anyone know what kind of jobs / carreer prospects are present for those in the admin service? Formulating policies? Analysing reports?? [just wild-guessing]

Admins Serivce folks are top-tier civil servants, so yes they do policy planning, they write white papers articulating key issues on things such as, say, healthcare for the elderly. They also represent Singapore on delegations to other countries. Pretty high-level stuff, and pretty demanding. You have to be in command of the facts constantly, otherwise you risk making an embarrassing gaffe.

You can hear this straight from the horses' mouth here. It's a video on the MAP/AS.

I guess you're right. Well, the pay really matches the amount of effort you put in.I know that some investment bankers earn $25k a month at 30 years old - and that's not even including bonuses!
