Let's pray Covid will quickly abate.
Hey, can i check with you when was your interview? Did you go to the office to sign the contract? Appreciate your response (so I can have a gauge) as Iím anxious for my outcome.

Just signed virtual contract. Everything was done through VC and emails. I think like one of the earlier posts, laptops will be couriered.

I was quite lucky as my interview was way back in late feb / 1st week of march thereabout. Interview took about 1 week (first and final interview in same week, 2 days apart), offered on day after final interview, wait about 2 weeks for HR to prepare contract, signed around late March...which was why I was very lucky to start work right before the circuit breaker measures kicked in.

Anyway don't worry, i had a small chat with HR and it seems they're resorting to e-interviews / telecommute / emails in the meantime. Just know that hiring processes will now be a lot slower and tedious because 98% of the public service is working from home. Which naturally brings more inconvenience and delays. If you haven't, drop the HR a message and ask when soonest can you hear back (what i did). Good luck!

If public sector dont think so, because most of the laptops require very comprehensive IT set-up of accounts and passwords which is a lengthy process and need to do it in person cause of privacy and encryption...some HR still on rotation, but most are asked to vacate office unless they have urgent public facing duties.
