With everyone scrambling for jobs amidst the pandemic, I can’t possible bank all my chances on one job app. I don’t know why this HR lady had to throw me shade for it.

huh HR is quite strange, it's not like you accepted the verbal offer and then retracted it. you are free to accept other offers if they were favourable, bc you are also "interviewing" the company. HR shld usually be prepared if their candidate rejects their offer and have back-up candidates...

I am a recent fresh grad, have applied for an entry level role with a SB sometime back in June. Went for a short case test and two interviews (one with HR and Hiring Manager) a week after which was complete radio silence.

Like any other fresh grad, I am also concurrently applying to other places and have recently accepted an offer with a bank. Just yesterday, the SB that I applied to drop me a call giving me a verbal offer. I told them that I have already moved forward with the bank. The HR individual started on how unprofessional I am for not informing them and how I costed the dept precious man hours.


My question? Will I be “blacklisted” from applying to this SB in the near future? I really hope to pivot in during my mid career.


Based on what you have wrote, you have accepted another offer given by the bank before the verbal offer by SB, which is quite common actually. Technically speaking nothing wrong.

But you are partially right, if you decided to go back to SB (the same SB and same department), then that particular HR personnel might still remember you, provided that he/she is still handling the recruitment process for that department, she might "blacklist" you. BUT who knows, that HR might have already left the company few years later.

From my experience, if you apply different departments in the same SB, you still hold a similar chance unless the HR responsible for that department recruitment is the one that you have turned down previously. She MIGHT remember you.

And ultimately, even if you have rejected their offer the previous time, they will still shortlist you base on your achievements when you decided to pivot back in to PS in the future.

Im a mid careerist currently in a private SME. Have been applying for Gov jobs but none of the applications have had any updates. All states “submitted “ or “in process”.

Not even a chance for interview. I must say it’s quite demoralising as I’m looking to get out of my current job due to the overwhelming stress and anxiety that it brings.

Is 1 month a reasonable time to hold onto the application to? Or should i move on already?

Have the applications closed? What is the application window like and when did you apply?

I believe some HR only begin contacting candidates close to or after the application window has closed, whereas others contact them earlier.

For civil service/statboard, once they give verbal offer, their word is good! (unless u lied on your resume/failed medical and they found out) But the approval process may take a while depending on their internal processes.

If youre anxious, just drop them a call/email and ask them if there is any update update maybe 2 weeks? All the best!
Thanks for the comment. I really afraid because the job market is like pro employer.
I did dropped email to the admin since I only has admin email, she mentioned nothing pending at my side. Just have to wait.
But I really want to start new job ASAP. Current job drain out my passion and many interviews invitation coming. Just scare last minute decline then I lost in the end.
I was thinking to just tender. But it's too risky.

Typical. I call msg email.
1 month after final interview still in processing as per what hr said.

When in the 1st place they say only will max 2 weeks.
Guess it's a lengthy process.

Right now I'm waiting for other job offers. Giving till end of this month before I move on to accept the others cause I requested for holding period.

Gotta be realistic. After 2 months. Perhaps they don't even want me and I'm. Not 1st place candidate but a backup incase anybody didn't accept then they process mine.

Also the post about the hr. Really wtf rude as hell. Pls let us know what sb
