I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Singapore Polytechnic (Singapore (Singapore)) in July 2011.
I applied online through the government jobs portal and this was considered an entry level position.
I received a call for an interview the following week, and when I went for the first interview it was amongst people in the department I was applying for. Initially they asked generic questions such as an introduction, the kind of experience I had, reasons I applied for the position, and it progressed to situation-based questions to understand what I'd do in made-up situations relevant to the work they did. The first interview completed with questions regarding my proficiency using the Microsoft Office applications.
I was invited for a second interview and besides the two persons who interviewed me the first round, the deputy principal and HR director were there and this session was a little intimidating for me, but they were very nice, and asked questions such as what I'd contribute to the polytechnic if I were hired. They gave me the opportunity to ask questions and I was concerned about the performance appraisal system and culture.
Aside from answering "favourably" to the questions they asked, they took note of punctuality (I was vying for the position with 3 other shortlisted candidates who made it to 2nd round and was slated to go 2nd but I reached first and the rest reached after I was done) and what I brought to the interview (a drink was definitely not welcome).
