Do you receive the shortlisted email? What subjects you applied for? I have not receive any medical emails yet as well.

Same!!!! I am just tempted to send a chaser email to moe but the last time I enquired about the medical check up on 27th November, I was met with a template reply that they are still processing. SIGH!

some have received offer email, some (like me) haven't! i believe there are multiple appointment briefing dates, so as long as there's no rejection we still have hope!

I haven’t gotten mine either 😅. One possibility is that officers are clearing leave 😂.

I have a BA Honours degree in Arts, and I have no prior counseling skills when I applied for the job.
Thank for your sharing. BTW, if you don't mind sharing whether you have any experience in education or volunteer work involving children and youths?

it was just the standard briefing for civil service(the dos and donts, and the code of conduct), followed by the actual signing of the contract. Basically the HR will address any questions you may have regarding the contract before you sign on the dotted line.

I didn't speak to anyone there(i just sat in front, listened to the briefing , signed and went back to work) , so im not sure of the profile of the people or what they were selected for. But the intake seemed to be rather small, the total number of people there was around 30(or slightly less). Most of the teachers to be are fresh graduates, around 25% are mid career switches but you wouldnt be able to tell(they look young as well,how do you tell someone is 22 or 27 anyway , haha).

I have been teaching in the Singapore Boys’/Girls’ home for the past few years. It does help to do some research for the untrained position, so you won’t be taken aback as to what it actually entails to be a school counselor. For example, the amount of heart and soul that is required to take on the role and the ever ongoing studying for your clients . Just like being a teacher, the responsibility is a fair bit, especially when it is just a few school counselors to an entire school.

Thanks for sharing ! Can I check with you, when do they actually present the salary offer. Is it before the appt briefing or after?
