har?no need to account to new employer lah. 90% back office ops is like that what, i just tell them i do what honestly, maybe exaggerate a bit. more like you go tell others your bo exp is strategic, sibei complex and specialize they will straight away dig & expose you. happen to my ex-colleague before.

my first job was client service analyst. the jd say until so cheem like can learn a lot. go in then realise i just need to do 2 things. 1) run the tracking platform to monitor trade settlements and generate weekly report for sign off 2) act as first line contact to forward all the queries to the necessary subject matter expert. i think diplo also can do it.

It seems there is now far lesser work for me to do and that worries me since less work means less learning and hence prospects. I have no idea why this is happening but I did inform them about it and they have arranged a meeting for me with the hiring manager.

Corporate/SME banking and consumer banking are different and each have their pros and cons. But just because you are a contractor for corporate banking ops doesn't make you superior to a contractor supporting the consumer side.

At the end of the day, I understand you probably feel a bit conned by the bank which is true. If you think like that, then better to just reject the offer and continue to apply. But don't reject because you somehow think doing documentation for business loans is more elite and sophisticated then consumer loans, they are about par, i.e. contractor for the BO operations.

This is just emo talk. You can scream and shout all you want about unfair hiring practices and inaccurate job description, but if nothing except contract what to do? Complain to MOM?

It was supposed to be a job that entails numerous responsibilities ie review credit proposal but now it is just making phone calls to customers on credit card applications. I mean doing less is great but I feel this would leave a bad impression on me at my next job since there is nothing much for me to learn here. I feel I have been tricked to carry out work that anyone without a degree can do. I have not yet signed the offer. What do you all think?

Don't take?

As for different title/work, I don't think it matters that much. Banking contract ops are more or less follow process SOP work, I doubt calling yourself a documentation analyst vs review specialist will really increase your future market value.
