anyone know for SO position, after submit document and going through the first interview, whats next? How long do I need to wait for the next interview?
All that's left is to wait for the letter of acceptance or rejection. It will typically take between 2-3 weeks depending on when the next course is scheduled to start.

That is not entirely true. It is true that there may be a record of your past application and also the reason for your rejection. However, that can be said the same of most jobs regardless private or public. Especially when you try to apply again too soon after your previous attempt, chances are the interviewers/HR will still have some impression of past applicants.

However, it does not mean that just because you got rejected this time, you will not be selected/accepted in future. The reasons for your rejection could be due to various reasons. i.e. there might be other candidates more suitable than you at this time and if they only plan to have a 15 man course and you happen to be the 16th suitable guy. Or you are just not ready for this job based on your answers at this point of your life.

I do not know if this is your first job application or if you are currently employed/unemployed. However, I speak from personal experience that your mentality/mindset when looking for a job is greatly affected depending on your employment status. If you are unemployed and desperately want a job, then it might affect the quality of your interviews, compared to say going into an interview with a relaxed mentality that ok I will just give this a try and if it works then good, otherwise I still have my existing job. And I have been on both ends of the spectrum.

Therefore my advice for you is to perhaps try to apply for other jobs and work for a year or so or stay with your current job. If a career with ICA is what you really want, then you will naturally want to try again. And at that time, you might be better prepared and the people interviewing you may be different too.

If you are just looking to join ICA because you have no other options at the moment, then I would advise you to take longer to search for a job. Because even if they offered you a position, I can assure you that you will not last long. As some people have already commented, it is not a secret that working at ICA can be pretty demanding(i.e. shift work, demanding travellers etc). If you do not join with the right mindset, you are sure to burn out.

If you have your mind set on a career with ICA, then I look forward to you trying again soon. Otherwise, I do hope your alternative endeavours work out for you too.
Thx bro! Well written. Agreed with you on your points.

Hi, I know this is a little irrelevant but I have applied for the HASE position and I've went through one interview at MHA and the 2nd interview in ICA. I've also submitted the documents to ICA. I received an SMS recently telling me that they are going through the approval process for my appointment.

Can I be hopeful that I will be eventually offered? And if so, what is the typical waiting time from the 2nd interview until the offer?

Thank you!

Wohoo so I received the letter of offer and I'm asked to head down to Vital for the appointment formality.

Do I need to wear formal?

Congrats!! May I ask when did you go for your second interview? I'm still waiting for some news :/ Also, in my opinion, it's better to wear formal or at least a shirt and Jeans

I went for my 2nd interview 5 weeks ago. They sent me an SMS 2 weeks later telling me that they are sending my appointment for approval. After which are 3 torturous weeks of waiting.

Fyi, I applied for the HASE position, not the JO/SO positions. I believe they are handled by different HR officers.

In any case, all the best for your outcome!
