There’s no e-offer. The conditional offer that is pending pre employment checks is just a verbal offer extended to you. No agreement needed

Unregistered 25-12-2020 05:57 PM

It says offer of employment though

If the email you received is talking about the conditional offer that is pending pre-employment checks, it is a verbal offer. Unless you received a link from DBS to accept the offer through the portal, which will state the salary and bonus etc.. then that’s a legit offer

Unregistered 25-12-2020 11:28 PM

Or it could be you were from the September batch which all the e-offers would have been sent out.

Same here. I got in without knowing any framework for web dev. I only went in knowing the basics of C++ and python and I have a moderate amount of experience making GUI application. I dont even have a degree in CS or computer related field. The road ahead is long lol

Haha you're an outlier. Heard that each round of recruitment process they process 1000 applications. Then only about 10% got into the hackthon and probably cut down by half after it. So about 5% got in each time.

They do the 50:50 gender ratio hiring (women in tech BS), and you know CS course aint 50:50..
From what I seen if your a girl and join the hackathon your sure to get in.

Sad but its true, im in another bank as a software engineer. Joined via their hackathon as well. Women in Tech is a discriminatory hiring practice IMHO given that Computer Science cohorts have a higher ratio of males.

I am not saying that all women software engineers are bad, but the hiring practice of 50:50 isn't based on meritocracy as there are fast-tracked & less-stringent hiring interviews for women as compared to men.

I know of females (2nd lower results) who only require 1 interview to get the same job whereas the males (2nd upper) had to go through 2 to 3 rounds of interviews. In fact the job description required a 2nd upper (common for banks).

I don't know why nobody speaks up on this issue, but anyone can correct me if I am wrong and provide your input.

DBS seed hires 50/50 ?

Singapore, 13 Oct 2020 - DBS announced today that it will be hosting its inaugural women-focused virtual career fair for technologists in October to fill over 50 technology jobs in Singapore. This comes as the bank seeks to grow its pipeline of female technology talent, and to encourage more women in Singapore to build a career in technology.

Dubbed ‘DBS Women in Technology’, the fully digital event seeks to proactively reach out to female talent pools in Singapore and share the career paths available to them as technologists in DBS. The job opportunities available through the event cover 11 technology roles, such as data engineers, scrum masters, full stack developers, solution architects, and site reliability engineers.

Soh Siew Choo, Managing Director and Head of Consumer Banking and Big Data Analytics Technology at DBS, noted that women continue to be underrepresented in the technology space globally, and DBS wanted to proactively address this by building a pipeline of women technologists in Singapore. “As a purpose-driven technology company, we have an opportunity to lead by example and demonstrate what companies can do to nurture a more gender-balanced technology workforce. Having balanced gender representation is also pivotal to our ongoing digital transformation, as it allows us to tap on diverse ideas to develop differentiated and exceptional experiences for our customers.”

Applicants will go through an 80-minute online assessment tailored to the roles they are applying for to gauge their technical and planning capabilities. These online assessments must be submitted by 19 October 2020.

Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to an online hiring day on 31 October 2020, when they will learn more about DBS’ approach to gender diversity and what it is like to build a career as a female technologist in DBS before attending a virtual interview.

More information on DBS Women in Technology can be found at: s://.dbs.com/DWIT/sg/index.html

DBS Women in Technology builds on the success that the bank has seen organising tailored events to bring more women technologists into its ranks. In 2019, DBS launched Hack2Hire-Her, a curated outreach programme targeting female technology talent complementing the bank’s annual Hack2Hire hackathon. As a result, the proportion of applications from women rose to over 30%, as compared to 5% in previous years, and the number of offers made to women also increased about five times.

DBS has been recognised internationally for its efforts in driving gender equality and was named on the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index for three years running, ever since the index was first launched in 2018.

Yes but this is not DBS Seed right?
But i guess if unqualified people are hired from their event it is probably DBS’s own fault for assessing it that way. Anyway we are all fresh graduates, let’s just help each other instead of lamenting about it. It will definitely make the workplace a much better place. By helping others is also a way to help yourself too.

I am helping guys who I know of that work hard yet arent able to get a placement not because of they lack merits or skills but because the pee standing up.

FYI, DBS does 50/50 hiring
This means that if there is 100 intake for the SEED programme and 100 participants for the hackathon with (40 females and 60 males) guess who has to fight for the placement.

Women in Tech is a great movement overseas. But the question is, is it relevant in Singapore?

Maybe you can wear the shoes of males who complete their unversity studies at 24/25 YO and yet have to compete with other males for a spot in tech, whereas female counter parts have fast tracked interviews for job placement

Well we can just brush it under the rug cuz only guys are the ones affected right :> what a great time to be a women in tech

Yes maybe im delusional, if im please explain whats wrong with my thinking glad to hear anyones opinion

I remember the HR mentioned the conditional offers are sent within a few days including weekends after the techtrek regardless of Jan/Jul batch. I picked July and received the conditional offer 4 hours after the event. So, if chances are very slim now :(

Wow congrats! I received an email 2 days after the dec Hackathon that HR was deliberating my candidacy and just got an an update that they are still deliberating my candidacy. Just wondering if anyone has been in my situation before, getting a little confused here.
