Anyone knows if there is any difference in processing time for a candidate who is already in CS vs not in CS when it comes to applying for a job in CS?

Anyone knows how many rounds of interview will normal A/AD go through? First round of interview scheduled next week but I have a competing offer that requires me to get back by end of next week.

If your panel of interviewers include the director of the hiring department, them most likely it is only one round. If its only the DD, then it will be more than one round. The time they take to come back for 2nd round can be anywhere from days to a month.

Usually 1-2 rounds and in-between rounds can be 1-2 weeks.

Just want to update all that I had just received a rejection email after emailing the HR twice. Applied for the position 2 months ago and attended 2 interviews shortly after. So if you need an answer to plan, it would be good to check with HR directly because many times they will not update in [email protected]

NUS fresh grad. I first received a keen to process application from LTA (in verbatim their HR said I passed the interviews and will get the job, subject to medical and reference checks), then a verbal offer from HDB - to reply in a week. I'm more keen on LTA, but their HR indicated they will only be able to get back to me with an actual verbal offer end next week - which it after HDB's one week reply period. Both SBs will be offering about the same salary. In this case is it safe that I reject HDB in favour of a pending LTA offer?

You can try to request HDB to give you one more week extension. Or tell LTA HR frankly you have another offer and need a quicker confirmation saying you prefer LTA. Alternatively, accept HDB first and when LTA comes, just say sorry to HDB and do so before you sign appt letter. I know it is not nice to do so, but you have to consider your own future sometimes. I believe HR is quite used to such things. If all don’t work, then just take the risk of rejecting HDB and pray no surprises from LTA. All the best.

Dont get to obsess with the titles. Different ministries and stats board do it differently.

Some position in some stats board are quite inflated.

I had friends who is a Senior Executive in MHA and earn more than an assistant director in LTA despite same years of service and honours.

Sometime you just need to count how low you are in the “food chain” and you know if your titles really meant anything. There is a difference between Assistant Director leading group of graduates and Assistant Director who has no one reporting to him.
