will be glad if someone here can provide ideas on how to withdraw from the program without burning bridges since I will so be proceeding to the last stage soon ………………...
Looks like need to weight on quiting my current job for me as well & also on the prospect of ranking not among the top few MA. It will be hard to find a new job in this economy after the 1 year program if sidelined by the company & have to leave.

It really depends on your character.

I'm not sure if I'm following your logic. Was I, by any means, assuming that all applicants were from banking backgrounds?

All that I'm saying is that the entire banking industry is highly competitive, and international banks probably more so than local banks. It doesn't matter what pay DBS is offering, be it 5k, 6k or 10k, if the applicant is not ready to face competition, he/she won't last in banking in general, and it would be a poor decision to join the EMAP programme (or any other banking programme). Regardless, no point debating on this.

Good luck to anyone with upcoming panels.

And the job environment can’t possibly be worse than right now. If you have been following any form of economic forecasts/outlook we are expected to return to pre-covid status (economy wise) by 2022/2023.

Can’t compare BO at bulge bracket lah.

DBS remuneration is actually the industry standard.
