Unregistered Senior Executive Conveyancing position-

Very slow career advancement.

When you first join Land Titles Registry as "Senior Executive'' , are you on same level as other Senior Executives in other departments?

You look at those supervisors in Land Titles Registry.

They are already 40s to 60 years old, holding the titles "Head, Managers''

Those people joined Registry of Land Titles as Conveyancing Officers Grade 5 ,after their A Levels.

Then work their way up to current position.

I knew them very well

One of them is so called" Head/ Asst Registrar of Titles" , joined in 1980s as Div 3 staff, after her A Levels. Is her A Levels good enough ? No

Head / Asst Registrar of Titles is nothing impressive.. Just a equivalent to Chief Warrant Officer.

Those so called '' Managers'', 'Asst Managers'' ..
They don't have very good university degrees.
One of them got only lousy degree from Indian university not recognised by Singapore Public Service.
She joined as Conveyancing Officer Grade 3 (actually Snr Div 3 post) in 1990s

Now , how old is she?

50s, still hold ''managerial post''

Being a junior supervisor post like Warrant Officer, at 50 year old. Nothing to be proud about.

When you first joined Land Titles Registry as ''Snr Executive'' . you have to focus on long term On the Job Training, where you learn how to do conveyancing work.
After few years, you will be sent to another section where you learn.

After few job rotations, spanning 15 years , you will be considered for promotion to Asst Manager..

If you are deemed to be learned and experienced, you will promoted to Manager at age of late forty, then you train new staff to do conveyancing work.

My female friend work there at age 24 , now she is "Head'' at 45 year old..

Do you feel proud?

Nothing to be proud about.

When you have very good professional degree, you don't work there . You will be post to better department (Finance, IT, HR,Legal, etc) where your career advancement is better

If you have LLB (Hons) degree from recognised university, you will be part of management team in Land Titles Registry, very much superior to those still learning how to do conveyancing work. You will be overseeing those old supervisors (trainers)

Do you know current Registrar of Titles? when he first joined Registry of Titles at the age of 27, after graduating with LLB (Hons ) . Now , he is Asst Chief EXecutive at the age of 52..
Very impressive right?

icy water refer to post #24

anyway the question given to me was something like this:
SLA has various departments such as business operations, planning and policy, finance and so on and so forth... Rank in order of your preference and explain your ranking. (500 words)

Hope it helps. As I mentioned earlier, they may have other questions so don't take it as standard question. May helps others in future if you can kindly post the question they gave you after your interview.

Also, remember that first round is a panel interview (around 7 people excluding HR). So do consider other positions as they have quite a few number of vacancies.

Unregistered Hi Icy water , may i know what's the essay question that they set ?

icy water well, i agree that my friends may not be experienced enough but it certainly wasnt the first job for some of them.

good that someone pointed out it may be harsher in certain stat boards. i am learning more from friends and forums too. perhaps it might be better to find out more from the civil service thread.

for those posting useless comments, you may have lots of experience but that was certainly childish.

As for the comment about politics, i heard it from friends who are already working in the civil/public sector. They come from HDB, IRAS, MOH, NEA, LTA to name a few. They have been working for at least 1-3 years. If you still don't believe then there's nothing I can do.
even if i give u benefit of doubt, 2 problem with your friends exp:

1) they are all very junior in position, only minority are able to figure out the politics that early. most will blur blur for quite some time & make a few mistakes here & there b4 figuring out whats going on

2) since they all just left school not long, they are likely to be only in 1st job within public sector, w/o exp in pte sector to compare on what basis do they say politics is lesser? and on what basis then do you from these relatively inexp comments confirm that politics is lesser?

like someone earlier mention, politics in some stat boards can be even harsher & more complicated then pte sector.
