    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Phillip Securities (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    Hiring process was long since i dont have a good track record. The management took weeks to actually approve my application after the HOD submitted my resume. As for the interview process, the HOD was desperate for me to join and i didn't had much to do. It lasted for quite a while, with him doing all the talking instead.

    Negotiation

    Its hard to negotiate because the company is very budget! Dont let them psycho you into accepting a crap offer.

    One round interview. The interview process for this firm is fairly short. They also arrived at their decision within a mere week. The interview is conducted by the hiring manager. First impression matters. Do take the initiative to talk more as the interviewer would not prompt you to say much.
