Queries about Cpib application
 
Hi,

I have applied for cpib as an io. In the career portal it states in progress. It has been like this for the past one month. Usually in career gov portal, they will indicate unsuccessful and stuff. I but this has been in progress state for a long time. Is there anyway I can contact them? Anyone has any experiences?

Appreciate any replies

Mine was on 21st August.. It is still under process state... I have tried mailing them but no reply yet. My best wishes for your result.! :)

Unregistered 29-10-2012 08:48 PM

Is it normal for the status to always be at "submitted"? It had been quite a while and nobody is processing my application.

usually they take kinda long to process it, unless it is unsuccessful, which is fast

omezarn 30-10-2012 02:26 PM

hmm Oct is comin to an end.. Seems like there is another opening for the same position. Wonder if i should re-try again, even with the current status of "in process"

Unregistered 30-10-2012 03:46 PM

CPIB usually takes longer as they need to do some background checks for potential candidates. And they also take in people in cohort so while they open recruitment, they bunch people in batches, accounting for the longer wait time.

Unregistered 30-10-2012 08:06 PM

Thanks all for the replies! I shall patiently wait for them to get back to me and hopefully they shortlist me

Unregistered 30-10-2012 09:39 PM

Try a cpcb approach

Unregistered 31-10-2012 09:25 AM

haiz1234 13-11-2012 01:21 PM

Ya I applied in Oct n yet to receive any call or email from them. It was until recently that I realised they extended their deadline. Maybe they need new blood. Haha.

Unregistered 17-12-2012 06:01 PM

"Submitted" and "In Progress" means nothing if you have applied at Careers.gov.

Only the more on the ball HR in gahmen sector will toggle the statuses and the only status that guarantees an interview is "Shortlisted". Treat anything else as an unsuccessful application and reapply once the closing date for submission has been passed.

The less on the ball HR will never bother to toggle the statuses. You might find yourself being asked for an interview even if it just states submitted.

Just apply and wait for call. If no call, move on.

is the CPIO post open to girls too?

and any kind soul who got recruited tell me more about the training involved? Is it on 'theory' or are they physical/IPPT type of training, like those of police?

Tia!

haiz1234 25-12-2012 11:09 AM

ya haha..

jobscope looks interesting, but if the training is physical training, then i can forget it. You have any idea what the training is all about?

Unregistered Santa 25-12-2012 08:24 PM

Cpib
 
Alot of investigation job but less physical I would say..

Be prepared to work late and sometimes on stand-by, it's interesting I would say but the bonded scheme made ppl think twice.. An element of risk involved and frens will be wary of u becase u r an enforcer ..

How old r u girl?

What do you mean by bonded scheme made ppl think twice?

wern 26-12-2012 12:22 AM

uniform/enforcement agencies usually come with a training bond lasting 2-3years. It means basically must stay there for the 2/3years (it's not a scholarship. You just lan lan have to suck thumb and stay for the entire period even though you're a farmer). I cant remember whether CPIB is 2 or 3. ICA's is only 1 year thats why many people find it very attractive.

For a fresh 20+ year old uni grad to be bonded down in a agency with little transferable skills for that length of time requires some degree of passion and tenacity for the job.

Unregistered santa 26-12-2012 12:24 AM

After
 
After 4 months training serve 2 year bond lo..
But pay starting quite high.. More than police..

I always puzzle police or cpib better prospect?
Police can do investigation, command tour den staff tour but must fight with scholars sian..
CPIB can only do investigation .. Not sure if can change dept to mgt or create awareness in future..

Sian which one better

wern 26-12-2012 12:36 AM

both sama sama lah. But cpib has a (slightly) higher potential outside because compliance/audit positions MIGHT consider your experience as relevant. Thats a huge IF there because you're still competing against law/accountancy grads who are fresh from their uni exams/textbook case studies and competing for the same job. And besides these firms usually have their own internal training program once you get in.

Cpib might be potentially good outside, but don't count on it because successful cases are really few and far inbetween. I dont know abt mgt roles in cpib, all I know is that they're an unusual semi-uniform/enforcement agency that doesnt use the typical police/army rank structure but adopts the government executive, senior exec, manager(team manager), dy director rank structure.

is it true that cpib people are under tremendous pressure especially in light of recent high profile cases?

Interested to know too, anyone knows?

anonymous88 28-12-2012 05:52 PM

Just thought I could do some sharing here.

Applied for CPIO around August, got called up for interview in late Oct followed by an offer from them around late Nov.

Interview is a one round process in the conference room with three directors so its not for the faint hearted! :D

They are really interested to know you personally and most importantly whether you have interest in investigation work. With regards to the bond, take it as a form of 2 year contract and start work with an open mind whereby you learn and absorb as much as possible instead of being frightened off by the "bond" term.

All the best for those who are applying! :D

Thanks for the info. So does that means they will review your performance again after 2 yrs den decide whether to offer you the contract again ?

i guess that is how it works but during the 2 years, you gotta be with them otherwise gotta pay compensation for breaking the bond.

Can share some insight on how is the work like? Is there any physical stuff involved?

anonymous88 29-12-2012 01:20 AM

Have yet to start work though. Shouldn't be that physical compared to police I guess.

haiz1234 29-12-2012 02:30 PM
