    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.

    Project Management Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IDA (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by interview with direct supervisor. The phone interview was general while the interview with supervisor lasted for 30 minutes. I think it differs from the person to person in terms of interviewing style. For my supervisor, he asked me a lot of questions related to the sector that he managed: relevant skills, knowledge, passion. It is good to ask the interviewer questions as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions are about your knowledge of information technology and telecommunication. Better to keep yourself updated of the latest trend that is making the news. Some other personal questions regarding your leadership skills as well.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IDA (HarbourFront (Singapore)).

    Interview

    That was back in 2007. Interview conducted by a panel of hiring manager, the boss of hiring manager and HR. They will ask the standard questions you can find in the Internet. 1 round of interview should suffice for a manager role. Once you are accepted with a job offer, the salary tend to be non-negotiable and HR almost always have a back-up candidate in the event the first candidate reject the salary package.
