No news yet thus far. The closing date was 5 Feb, so Iím guessing you got a reply from them at the end of January? May I ask when did you submit your application? Iím guessing no news means not shortlisted.

Applied on 04/02/21
Received Update slightly after mid-Feb

Donít lose hope! They donít always reply on time; it takes them a few days to even months. MOEís jobs (usually) have hundreds of applicants, so they will take some time too 💪🏼💪🏼

Thank you. If you donít mind me asking, do you have previous experience in a job of similar nature? When have they scheduled you for an interview? All the best! :)

Hmm nope, I only indicate my interest upon applying for this position. Thank you for kind wishes/encouragement :) I went for the interview a few days ago and mannn it was nerve-racking 🥴 but well, hopefully I get the job! Otherwise itís another round of job searching T-T.

How about you? Do you have any previous experience prior to this job? Hopefully, youíll get an update from them soon! :)

I see. Did they mention when theyíll be getting back to you about whether you get the job? Glad that you managed to complete the interview! I think MOE interviews are usually pretty nerve-racking. What were some of the questions that they asked?

I have teaching experience but thatís about it, really. No experience in conducting outdoor education though.

Nope, they donít really disclose when they will be getting back to the interviewees and normally when you call them up, they will just tell you that itís still in process. Although, I hope that they will reply fast. Canít be doing nothing and just keep waiting you know but yeahh then again, they make the choice. 😌

Questions asked were pretty general.
(a) Why do you want to join this industry?
(b) Do you maintain a healthy lifestyle?
(c) Any experience in coaching or guiding students?
(d) Are you afraid of heights and water?

Ohh, teaching experience as in you taught students in Primary/Secondary Sch? For how long? I think thatís also an advantage for you! Being able to talk to a big group of students 👍🏼

Yeah, agree. Itís like playing a waiting game cause you donít know whether theyíll be offering the role to you or not and when theyíll do so. And even if they donít, I hope they do it sooner rather than later so that there is a form of closure. But I hope you receive good news!

Ah I see. Indeed pretty general questions and quite related to the job that they are advertising. How many people were on the panel of interviewers? Yes, Iím currently teaching in a secondary school but I would like to have a change, which is why I applied for it too 🙂

Yeah, itís like playing a waiting game cause you donít know whether theyíll offer the position to you and when theyíll do it. But like you mentioned, I think there are many applicants so theyíll take some time to get through them.

Oh ok, I see. Indeed pretty general question but also quite related to the position that they have advertised. How many people were on the panel of interviewers?

Yes, I have experience teaching in a secondary school. Am still teaching now actually. But Iím really keen on outdoor education, hence I applied for the role :)

Yeap, pretty general. They want to know why youíre really interested in this position and whether you are ready enough for it.

There were a total of 4. 3 of them took turns to ask question while the other 1 was just typing what you said.

Ahhh I see, thatís good! Hopefully they get back to you soon!!

Hi there! I am intending to apply for the Untrained School Counsellor position once the application is out. Can I know how was the process like?

Thanks for your time! :)

Unregistered 06-07-2021 01:50 PM

Hi, i dont usually comment on threads but because i have applied for the position of untrained school counsellor myself and went through the process and have been looking for othersí experiences on this. I wanna help others too!

Seriously, its the toughest interview ive been to. Ive had 3 successful offers with other ministries since i graduated and the interviews were not as tough as this. And to think i really prepared for it. Whatever negative reviews u read on glassdoor, it is true. Tho i believe it depends on ur interviewers bt i wld think that the more challenging interviews shld be by the same few interviewers. They will really drill you and question your intentions on applying for the job. Why this, why not apply other helping professions since u want to help others? Alot of questions on your resilience, coping, and how committed and dedicated you are for a very highly demanding and mentally draining job. They also make alot of reference to your past jobs and also what kind of jobs ure looking for now. I think this is to sieve out those who apply ďjust to tryĒ. Afterall, they will be paying for your training + giving full monthly salary and u will be bonded for 2 yrs aft training.

Once youre shortlisted, u will have to complete some IQ quiz which is not too difficult, qns also include abt ur morals, personality & coping. U will also have to ask ur referee to fill up an excel sheet, assessing somewhat ur counselling, people n problem solving skills. After which there will be two rounds of interview (if u pass the first one).

So yeah, i hope this is helpful and just come fully prepared. Be confident and must put aside pride/ego bcos seriously aft the interview you can actually feel personally attacked and abit like character assassination hah! It would be great to also read up on resources on the intent of qns posed by interviewers, bcos i personally feel their questions are not straightforward tho it may seem so. There are specific answers and qualities theyre looking for as with all other interviews bt its just that this stood out more for me!

Hi, may I know when did you go for the interview and what was your outcome? Generally agree with what you said, except that my interviewers were generally ok. They had a standard model answer that they were looking for so if your answers do not fit, they will tell you so (which I thought was odd) May I know if you advance beyond the first round, who are your interviewers and what do they ask? I'm still awaiting the results of my first interview (likely know by Aug)
