As mentioned previously, if youre looking for a role with progression this is not suited for you.

can confirm this is true

Hi may I know how are the SEEDers being assesed?

I don't think I showcased my react skills enough. It's more like helping out other teammates here and there.

Unregistered 08-05-2021 02:07 PM

Anyone knows if they send out rejection email if not getting selected?

I don't want to wait for them indefinitely.

DBS doesn't send out rejection emails, for this program they respond on the day or the day after the techtrek. So if yours was quite a few days back already, then just move on

Unregistered 08-05-2021 06:27 PM

How are the exit opportunities for seeders?

Unregistered 08-05-2021 06:33 PM

Anyone know if i can do data science/ analytics in the seed program? I did civil eng and self learning coding and online courses for AI.

Last Friday via call from HR

Unregistered 10-05-2021 11:53 AM

Do yall think we can wait out and expect outcome notification by the end of this week? Cos my application status is still at “selection” so I’m guessing I havent been rejected yet? Or is that even how it works LOL

They haven't update it i think. My status had been changed to completed today after receiving the offer last Friday

Unregistered 10-05-2021 02:16 PM

Until you get rejected, theres always a chance. If not, there are better suited opportunities out there for you!

Stop giving false hope dude... As mentioned in this thread and the other DBS thread, they don't give notice for rejection

Unregistered 10-05-2021 02:32 PM

Hi guys, for those who received offer last week, did HR mention when the start date for the program will be? I forgot to ask and now paiseh to call back

Unregistered 10-05-2021 03:01 PM

I dont think they send out all the offers on Friday. I have friends from previous hackathon that only receive a few days later

Most likely because there are people rejected and they are on the backup list.

But for this DBS sends out an email saying that they need time to consider... read previous posts

Unregistered 11-05-2021 11:11 AM

It's sad to know that I'm not even being considered for a backup.

That means to them, I'm same like those group members who can't even write proper codings, and those who can't even do API callings.

Sigh.

Don't worry man. DBS SEEDers don't have good progression because DBS intended to use these graduates to cover their bottom line and do the coding, instead of promoting to higher ranking roles. Their mass hiring is to account for their high turnover rates, after many grads realize this

Thanks for updating.

I just receive an email stating I'll be receiving an update by end of this week. Not sure if that means I'm in the backup list lol.
