Default HR confirmation Singapore power

About 2 weeks ago, I have been called for an 2nd interview at sp power grid. I met up with the interviewers but I dun think it went well. So it was a pleasant surprise that the HR called me up and told me that I was selected for the position and they are preparing the financial package. They will call me again once it is ready. I have been waiting for a week.

I have some questions to ask.

1. How trustworthy is that call? I have met some HR says you are selected but in the end made me wait for nothing.

2. How long do I need to wait for them? Understand that government sector takes long processing time.

Appreciate your kind replies!

SP is private sector so should be quite fast, two weeks top? but also means that the HR can say whatever they want... its only confirmed when you have black and white...

hear from my friend that working as an engineer in SP is not really worth it. need to own/buy car but company not giving enough for the car ownership + average starting salary + poor increments. So, ultimately, it is like digging into your own shallow pocket to pay for the car. Other companies seems to be offering better. so much more private company out there offering high starting and relatively not bad increment. Best of all, most job do not require you to own car.

as long as you've never receive any confirmation or signed anything, you are free to choose, even accept or reject the current offer. who knows you might find a better offer.

u can call them up and ask about the situation. If there are totally uninterested, tell them u have another offer coming and make it quick.

if you want to tell them to make it quick, make sure that you really have another offer. i've seen some HR withdrawing the offer when they are told to "make it quick."

I started searching for jobs in end 2013 and have been going for job interviews. Managed to get 3 job offers at ard the same time. I think the economy is relatively good now especially for singaporeans. if the company HR have not yet reply, nothing is confirmed yet. you should continue sending out resumes so that at least you have other offers in which you can do comparison.

Don't just rely on 1 offer, which is not confirmed yet.

Esp to those who are graduating soon, more offers are bound to come. it is a known fact that most companies ,notable or not, normally send out the offer letters after exams. which is why you will normally see most friend getting jobs at around may june july. Don't just immediately take the offer that comes first. But please do look around first and ask around. Many of my friends regretted taking the first offer because the subsequent offers that came after they signed are way more better. But what done is done.

Seriously, don't stop sending out resume when you get an interview. Continue spamming until you get the concrete paper offer. Stop only when the grace period of accepting the offer is up. - BEST ADVICE FOR THE THREAD STARTER

What industry are you in? whats the job offers that you have gotten? I have the exact opposite experience. Graduated in mid 2013 with a sci degree. Have been jobless since then and only recently have been able to secure my one and only job offer.

Hi, I'm an engineering graduate. The job offer that I have gotten, 2 is from oil and gas, 1 from ST. Engineering degree is a more employable degree. And the job offers that I have gotten are job that requires knowledge from what I have studied.

Actually, many of my peers also have got multiple job offers. (Especially those who spam resumes and go for all the interviews). Oh ya, just so u know I'm a 3rd class honors holder.
