Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Singapore (Singapore)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IDA (Singapore (Singapore)) in July 2016.

Interview

I applied for the role via the company website. Few days later, the HR called for a phone interview and then invited me for a panel interview. The panel interview was with CIOs of 2 Agencies and the HR manager. After that (I think just 1 day later) I was informed IDA would like to proceed and I was called by a Head of IT of one of the agencies for a phone conversation (informal chit chat), once that is done I just had to wait for G50 clearance and medical checkup.
