Unregistered Hi all, I need advice. I previously worked 6 months temp at Ministry A. During that time, I found a job at Ministry B. Now 3 months into Ministry B job but find it very unsuitable. Is there any chance to change to other public service job, or will it be really difficult?

So there is a chance that your 2nd round may come 2m later if their first choice rejected, but unlikely that they shortlist first round applicants so late. So far I received interview requests 1-2 weeks after closing date, with one being 1m after.

As for how many rounds, it depends on the agency and interview panel. If your interview panel includes both deputy director and director the first time, it will be only one round. If it is just the AD or DD, then there will be 2nd round. If you applied for DD role, then one level above D is needed.

This is my first time getting through to the second round, interviewing with higher-level people. Should I ask them for their emails, or ask the HR hiring manager, or just check on the Singapore Government Directory?

Just want to see what's the best action to take here because I want this job and I'm nervous.

I don't bother to. So far I don't find the sessions extremely formal and the HR don't really ask questions too, they are more like meeting facilitator. Even the room for nego is unlike private sector jobs.

What I do is to thank them for their time before ending the call. After the interview, only HR will contact you if successful and all conversations is through them.

In that case, I would just decline the private offer.

I usually try to avoid backing out after agreeing as I don't think it reflects well.
private coy can also take back after they offer you.

OP be selfish. Ask private coy to wait or accept and hope SB gets back to you during your notice period.

Either way you don't lose out
