It depends.

I've got friends who waited for 2 months and got accepted. I myself waited for 2 months and was rejected.

There are also some who reject/accept fast. Know someone who settled in within 1 month.

Seek you guys' advice.

Agency A contacted me last week after interview to say they will proceed with the application, including reference checks, but will need 3-4 weeks to confirm an offer.

Immediately the next day, Agency B made a verbal offer, deadline to respond by next Fri.

Very much prefer Agency A's work and also, Agency B is shift-based and Covid-exposed. If you are unemployed, would you take up Agency B out of desperation, but quit if Agency A does come back with an offer? Will you get blacklisted by Agency B subsequently? Any comments would be appreciated.

Are Agency A and Agency B in the same sector?

Best is to choose the one you prefer.

From experience, I would not recommend jobs which involve shift work especially if you are a graduate. Even more if it involves exposure to covid.

If its a perm position, I don't think you can quit shortly after joining without incurring a 'bad' reputaition. So think carefully

How desperate are you and how confident are you in securing agency A's job? Reference checks can take really long especially with the covid19 situation so if you really need a job now then just go for B. If you can afford to wait and take a gamble, decline B and go with A. After all, it seems like the grass on A is a lot greener to you.

Default Reference Checks

Talking about reference checks, what exactly is checked ah when it comes to applying for ministries and sb? Especially for fresh grads with only intern experience. Seems like there’s nothing much to check leh, but was wondering what to expect. Will they only call up the references I provided on my application or will they call up every single employment I listed on my resume for employment verification/character questioning?
