    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at National University of Singapore in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Since this is an out-sourced temporary contract position, the interview position was really fast. I did not email/correspond with the company myself, all was done through the recruitment agency. When I was asked to go for the interview, it was done by a Senior Executive whom I would report to directly. I think all he/she needed to know was if I were able to do the work required or not.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing at all. Just the simple question of me being qualified, why would I want a temp job.   View Answer

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at National University of Singapore.

    Interview Details

    I did my Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering in the year 2011-2012. I specialized in Mechatronics which was an interesting course given the fact that it is versatile in its structure and the learning was fun. I did a series of 7 mini projects (including projects from mechanical, electrical and software domains) to complete the course and they were useful and interesting.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no difficult phase as such but it was a hectic one year period for me since I took 5 modules per semester instead of the nominal 3 modules. It was fruitful since I passed out with good grades ans saved one year's tuition fees.   Answer Question
