bank contract jobs are not easy to get in like 5 years before. even admin positions are competitive

Can try those call centre 24x7 roles as not so easy to find sgp candidates, assuming u are sgp as this role is usually filled by foreigners due to the working hrs.

Or if not try junior sales roles if u are persuasive.

If you don't have an offer then no point asking.

look at what you have typed. so incoherent, still want to get into banking industry? if you cant even muster up your courage to SPEAK to people for eg. the call centre roles, then what rights do you have to want a job in this industry?

That's true. Being an introvert is not an excuse. Even if your job is a back office or middle office role where you don't meet clients, if you are afraid to talk to others your promotion will be affected.

That is the truth. Last year I spent 6 months going for call centre job interview and they werent even interested in hiring me, I am a singaporean btw 25yo f, and most bank call centre is filled with foreigners. Man I tried so hard landing an entry level job but its funny how they ask for experience for a call centre job. Now I am trying for admin contract roles... but this one seems to be "foreigners favourite" as well so it is extremely competitive. I went two UOB bank associate interviews last week and did not hear anything back. So depressing man.

Yes I knew a few colleagues who started off being shy and became confident throughout. There is no need to panic. Working can be educational for yourself too if you choose to learn with an open mind.

Default Transition into FO

Hi, do you mind sharing what type of ops roles were you and your colleagues in, and what type of FO roles have they moved to? Also to clarify, I'm interested to know what exactly do you do in your FI RM role. Is it more of a trade finance/corp loans RM?
Thanks for sharing!
