hi,

was wondering about the application process for LTA. my status at [email protected] was "in process" for a month (after submitting resume) and if were to judge by closing date..it was probably 3 weeks. i was wondering if there is any chances for me cause the other post i applied, it was nv been processed so means it remain as submitted or straight become unsuccessful after a short period. hence would like to check for those that had applied and got in, how long do i need to wait if the status stated in process? thank you

Default do they accept SIT graduate?

Was wondering do they accept SIT graduate or purely just NTU and NUS. Happen to know that afew SIT honors graduates with more relevant experience wasn't even get an interview compared to those fresh graduate or no honors graduate from NUS and NTU.

What is the SIT honours system like? How many percent make it to 1/2.1? Just curious, I am unable to answer your questions. I do not know the standard of an SIT grad with good honours, but knowing the standard of an nus/Ntu graduate with 3rd class and below, I would be tempted to hire an SIT graduate...

From my experience and understanding, taking my collaboration as an example. We didnt have bell curve system like ntu and nus. Hence meaning if you fail then you fail. Therefore there is infact very little make it to 1.. a significant amt make it to 2.1 but definitely not as much as ntu or nus sort of percentage. Mostly make it to 2.2 due to no bell curve and those grades were infact not the lowest of the 2.2 those. Not many got a 3rd class.

Honestly i do met alot of scholars at civil service we have the academic results but when come to actual work, they couldn't even visualise and they are not even fresh grad. Hence when collaborating with overseas partners, highly chance they shocked their counterparts because simple analysis which ive learnt in poly they also didnt manage to get it.

Do you know in nus, only 15-20 percent make it to 1/2.1, of which 30-40% are local? Approximately 30% graduate without honours. These are statistics of my batch, that may vary by course/year. You seem to think that it is easy to achieve 2.1 in nus/ntu.

There are bad engineers anywhere, perhaps the scholars that you have come into contact with have not engaged in much engineering work and have been pushed into "management" through a fast track route.

a passerby here, well i guess he/she didn't mean to think that it is easy to achieve 2.1 in nus/ntu but because you asked about statistics and no where was mentioned that it was easy, just a remark stating that the percentage is lesser then nus/ntu only. chill man~

As a local graduate and has friends in SIT, what i can quote from them is SIT mostly are local students, to get into 1/2.1 probably same percentage as nus/ntu. the percentage who cant make it to honors is roughly 20 - 30% and some even had to drop out without a degree cert.

Very chill! Just clarifying the misconception as i have quite accurate information about the ratio in nus for my year. When he said "significant amount make it to 2.1 but definitely not as much as ntu or nus sort of percentage." I dont think he knows what the situation is like in nus/ntu.

Just read about this post so I'll resume it anyway. Recently I applied for the Executive Transport Planner position through [email protected] and made it to the 1st interview. I didn't hear back after that though the interview went well, as least I felt it did. Having read the discussion here, now I understand no status update of "In Process" 2 weeks after the interview (it's 2 months now) equals "Unsuccessful".
Then LTA continues to post ads of the same position, of which the only difference is the job number. My question would be if it's ok to keep applying for it. Will the previous application still being processed hurt my chances of fresh applications? By the way, this time I lowered the expected salary, doubting, in a optimistic way, it might have been the fatal factor last time.

How much salary did u ask for the last time round? Yes, the HR does look at your asking salary and make their decisions after interviewing the entire selected few. Dont be surprise, just for 1 engineering position, there could be as much as 20 candidates, so u cant blame HR for haircutting onbehalf of the hiring dept/mgr.

Also btw, ur post is equivalent to manager? or ?

Despite its wording of "Executive", I'm pretty sure this is not manager level position because above it there are Senior Transport Planner, Deputy Director (group leader), etc. The only thing I'm unsure of is that sometimes they also have "Engineering Officer" whose level in relation to "Executive Transport Planner" is unclear. Anyway, it's more like slightly above entry level. So back to the critical question, though I have 2 years' relevant experience, how much should I be asking?? I just have no idea of the pay scale.
