    Software Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IDA (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    You will go through a telephone interview with a senior HR manager. After the manager have confirmed that you are the right person for the job, he/she will allocate an interview for you with the hiring manager. The face to face interview is crucial. Try to arrive 15minutes earlier as the security will take some time to change your pass. Then proceed up to the main reception at level 10 to wait for your hiring manager. Dress business casual (shirts + pants). Ties are optional but will add to a better first impression. Do remember that your hiring manager will most likely be your direct reporting officer so it is good that you give him/her a good impression early on. Talk to the hiring manager without being too "professional". Instead, keep it frank and discuss how you are suitable for the position and why you choose this job over the private industry. Keep the reasons as realistic as possible and avoid using "model interview answers". As you are applying for a rather technical job, you will be required to do a programming test on the spot, no internet and googling. So go read up on your best language and do some basic algorithm questions (sorting / search / FIFO/ LIFO / data structures) to polish your programming skills.

    Interview

    just invited over by the HR for interview. Behavioural Question, CV based questions
    They will begin with the interviewer describing the job and the organisation to you, before asking you to talk about yourself. This type has the advantage of allowing you time to settle down and get a feel for the personality of the interviewer(s). The disadvantage lies in the possibility of new information emerging on which you might be expected to answer questions.
