Yes bro

Juz the thought of going from end of recruitment process to start of process is demoralizing

Just asking this to see if anyone knows..

Does HR shortlist applicants before or after the closing date of a job advertisement? For example, application deadline for a job position is on 30 Aug 2014. If an applicant applies on e.g 10 Aug 2014, will the HR decides if he should be shortlisted for interview before 30 Aug 2014 or after all applicants submit their applications by 30 Aug 2014?

Better to apply earlier caus they might have already held intws for those who have applied earlier and not wanna intw those who applied close to closing date

Huh got such things one ah. Then wouldn't it be unfair for those who saw the advertisement later and apply later?

So far I receive calls for interviews after closing date..

yes unfair but sometimes what can we do about it?



i myself have finished 2nd round interviews even though the job posting was still active

maybe thats the reason why now they told me that i've been put on hold... cause they wanna finish looking at all the remaining applicants

One thing bad about applying for government jobs is that the entire process can be painfully slow.

Default Job Offer - To take or Reject?

Hi guys!

I am seeking your opinion. I have been going for govt job interviews actively since early July and finally there is 1 which called and offer me. I will say that the salary and the benefits they offered me are rather good. The factors which I am considering will be the actual job scope and the location. I am not very much into staff engagement kind of role.

As such, they have asked me to go ahead with the medical review. However, I remembered 1 or 2 interviews which I went previously were good, and I might be able to get the job, just that 1 of which mentioned they are already at the end part of seeking approval to inform me about the final offer, the other 1 is that I just recently went for the interview and it requires them about 1-2 weeks time to get back to the candidates.

The job which is at the end of seeking approval to offer me has been ongoing for about 1 month or so, however, the salary they mentioned openly, is not as attractive as the job which already called and offer me!

As for the one which I just went for the interview, I do not know how much are they offering me.

I have to reply the job which offered me by early next week.

What will you guys choose?

1) Take up the job which offered me, just that the job scope and location which I might not be that comfortable, but the salary is good

2) Wait for the job which is at their end of seeking approval and offering me soon, but their salary is much lower. Job scope is ok and the location is super near my house

3) Continue waiting for the job which I most recently went for their interview. They said they will try their best to get back to me by next Wed as I already mentioned to them that I have received offer from another company.

4) Just continue sourcing for jobs as I also just applied for 2 new posts which I am very comfortable with the job scope. Location is also ok, but I do not know anything about their salary and benefits.

Will appreciate some advice from you guys please!! Thanks..
