For this person's case, is it ok for him to put the stat board as the organisation he worked for in his resume? Or must he put recruitment agency?

just sharing. I just got accepted in a stat board.

-2 weeks for first interview after application
-shortlisted me for 2nd interview the following week
-2nd interview scheduled 3 weeks later, offered the following day
-3 weeks for medical and clearance

total time from application till start date is around 2.5 months. So yea pretty frustrating experience but the job seems to be worth it

and weirdly the only organizations which called me for interviews have separate portals from the [email protected] website (I have only applied govt jobs)

Question

How long would you guys wait to apply for a position in the same ministry/sb if you were rejected by them after an interview before?

Also, is it wise to apply for multiple positions in the same ministry/sb concurrently? i was thinking this might increase a candidate's chances but at the same time HR might think you're just spamming applications without truly being interested.

Hmmm usually I will just apply shortly if I get rejected.

You can apply multiple positions within the same agencies, no harm trying. But you need to know that, they will only consider one position at a time. Meaning if you apply for 3 positions, they will consider only one, the other two is put on hold.

If it is a headcount issue then most probably u will not be employed under the stat board, instead u will be employed under the agency. Usually the agency is on contract with the stat board to manage the staff, so meaning you 'might' be on contract basis with the agency too.
Hi all, would like to seek advice. In this case, will it be ok if I write the stat board as my employer in my resume in future? Just find it weird to write recruitment agency when the job I'm doing is under stat board.
