No problem.

Whoever said that is flat out wrong. I can tell you that much. DBS ACE and SEED are both in the same track with same pay and progression. It's only GA ops that's different and that's because it's a different market.

No idea, last I heard it was a hackathon like SEED just that it's more python / graph data demonstration, etc.

I think you are misunderstanding what YOE means.

For all jobs that requires at minimum a degree, YOE refers to YEars of Experience AFTER you graduate.

Your internships, whatever startup you worked on, whatever online remote business or sales you did while you were a university student does NOT count as YOE.

I hope that clears it up.

1. So if you're a fresh grad ( graduated a year or less ago, anything more and you are not a fresh grad by US standards )
2. You are not a fresh grad ( You graduated in 2020 but worked 1 year 11 months )

These two scenarios, you will qualify for DBS ACE, SEED, GA Ops.

So no, you cannot negotiate pay. Also ACE pays the same as SEED, 5.5k. What do you mean by "significantly lower?" The only program that pays lower is GA Ops, 4.5k to 4.8k negotiable.

You most likely got rejected because you have too much YOE.

DBS rejected me 2 months after the onboarding email for my payslip though. Also I find it weird why ACE pays significantly lower than SEED.
