Sounds like BAML to me haha. Or maybe SCB.

Go for it, you have nothing to lose. What did they offer you btw?

Ah yes, RBC. I think I saw that role on LinkedIn a month or so ago. That is a very good basic to start off your banking career. I wouldn't think twice if I were you, unless u are from a reputable uni with remarkable results. Many fresh banking grads would love to be in your shoes.

COB isn't the most glamorous of roles, but in the Ops space it's probably the least Ops-like in it's coverage.

GL buddy. Remember, jump around while this sector is still hot, no value in staying put in the same place for an extended period of time for now.

All the best in your career.

I meant more like 1 year. After that maybe 1.5 - 2 years then jump again.

Nobody knows... maybe in 15 years time, banks wont even exist anymore?

The closure of BSI Bank in Singapore shows how important the Ops role are. The lack of proper management of ops people has partially led to their downfall. Ops in bank is a huge vacuum now and alot to learn. take pride in it! The future is bright if you play your cards well
