[edit] for those who didn't know, first is submission of photocopied, second then is the formal interview...

just got interviewed today, didn't work too well.

but share with you how it goes,

After you reached, you will wait outside, the SSGT will verify your real documents with your photocopied.

after that, wait for your turned for interview, I got total of 10 persons when I was there.

How the interview works
It will be a panel interview (4 person)
1 commander (from different areas, tuas, woodland) My is Airport Command.
1 Director - I think most of the time is Director in Policy.
1 high rank officer (to support the commander)
1 senior officer (he will do the recording, writing, will not speak to you).
You can view their faces from the ICA website, download the annual report for ICA.

Commander and Director will question you, high rank officer will support the questions or add on questions.



don't worry, overall you will have a good chat with them, the topic is about yourself, just remember three things (Why you are here, about yourself and your talking skills)






Important Questions/things you must know.

Tell me about yourself and past employment record.

Why ICA? This part will decide how your whole story in the room will come, don't screw this part up.
I have a very bad answers for this part, I mentioned I want to be in security or in defence, and specify in ICA, I want to get involve with anti-forgery, anti-smuggling.
But they will just take "want to be in security or in defence" as why am I here... totally screwed...

MOST MOST IMPORTANT! They are looking for people who can handle the public, talk to the public. They looking for people who have good communication skills.

For those who are doing a career change, they will ask, wouldn't it better if you stick back to your previous career?

Where will be your career direction? - answer this carefully for those who answered career change question, cause they rather you not suitable for the career change...

Those unemployed, the reason why will be asked..

Hobby will be asked (What's your lifestyle?)

As those Obese/Overweight people - BMI will be Questioned.

Qualification will not be asked but your field of study, yes.

Important! Lastly, good questions for the interviewers.
- I asked what will be the 8 weeks training?
Same Answers (1 week stay in, firearms, self-defence)

- Will there be any Law test during the 8 weeks
Law test will be during after you deploy, not the training weeks.

- If I have been activated for mobilizations but I am at my counter, what will be the procedure?
Go for the mobilization, we will do arrangement.

I think I screwed up, with my communication skills...



my suggestion is for those who wish to join ICA, if you cannot speak at least good English confidently, don't even think about the ICA job scope.

and I want to add on, they quite irked when comes to poor speaking skills, I think it's good because it is what the front line staff purpose to have..

- just my opinion.

and remember to wear formal...
Guess my O levels English result could be the reason why i was rejected online x2.

Does anyone know how to go up to the 10th floor? Accompanied my friend last week as she had to submit some documents for the senior officer post but we had a really hard time just looking for the interview room.

We know it's at the 10th floor but we couldn't take the lift up as it's only for authorized personnel. Asked the staffs who were on duty and themselves had no idea /facepalm.

So can someone who is kind enough please tell me how do you get to the 10th floor? She has another one coming up this week. Thank you! And yes, I know this ish funneh.
Go straight to the entrance of the building, you will see a security guard. Turn right you will see an escalator in the middle of the hall. Go to the right of the escalator and you will see 6 lifts. Take any to 10th floor and you are done.

I'm waiting for my results of 2nd interview last week 31st August at the moment. Still no reply from them.

Don't think they want me ba. I fail my last ippt.
