Usually when they reject, they sound more like, "We regret to inform you... you have not been shortlisted for the position.... Wish you all the best..."

Just gone for second interview yesterday in the afternoon. Applied for the role of HR. The interview wasn't difficult. The first qn was "tell me about yourself". I also stated my preference in the working location as there were hiring managers from two separate bases. Then they asked why. Also talked briefly about my past working experience albeit no relations to hr at all.

I guess, u just gotta be yourself. The interview is actually less intimidating than some other private companies that I've been to. The hiring managers are really nice people.

Btw there's also a written test before the interview. It's for the hiring managers to understand more about you...so it's not really a test I think.

Anyway, this morning at 9am I received a call to ask me go down for site visit on 4 October.

Does anyone know if it'll be a solo thing or will I be in a group?

Hi,

In your case, you had 2 interviews before you were called up for the site preview? I also have a written test prior to the interview so I would like to know if this written test is just basically describing about yourself and not asking anything in relevance to the job post that you applied for?

Hi guys, really in a dilemma right now, so I would really appreciate it if anyone experienced can share his/her views.

I graduated from uni around 4 months ago (2nd lower).

Been looking for jobs while working freelance for a magazine firm. I have been offered a perm position at the mag firm, but the starting salary is 2.5k. At the same time, I have been called up to attend a first round interview for the position of Research Officer.

Does anyone roughly know the job scope, interview requirements for this posting? Not entirely sure whether I should try out for the interview. I did consider signing the offer at the mag firm, and have been pressed to do so. I feel like giving in because it's been 4 months since I have grad, and it sucks to be at home not doing anything.

At the same time, the stability and high starting salary of the DXO posting really speaks out to me.

Is the job itself mind-numbing? From the first interview to signing of offer (assuming one does get through), how long does the entire procedure take?
