for formalities, no need to wear formal right, just be presentable right?
Don't be too sloppy. Don't need to wear tie. Most people went in with shirt and pants. Just wear what you would wear to a normal job interview.

Had my interview today and I wouldn't say that it went too well. My panel of interviewers were all ladies and the first thing they asked me was "What do you know about ICA?"

Basically, I was so engrossed on preparing for the "Tell me more about yourself." question that I didn't pay much attention to this. I stumbled on my points.

So that aside, the next question they asked me was why didn't I join the Police Force. And they kept harping on that and rebutting my points when I answered that question.

Lastly, they didn't even give me a chance to ask if I've any question. How they ended the interview was "Okay. That's all for today."

All in all, my interview was a screw up. And I am totally bummed out over this. To get a call from them would be a total miracle. I, however, have a final question to ask.

Does anyone know how long they'll take to inform you of your results?

Thanks in advance.

who interviewed you? mrs chia took yin? or?

harping on and rebutting your points is not unusual, i got that as well as and was questioned if i was certain i wanted a complete job change and if i thought i would be suitable to work in an office env instead. just be firm and say with certainty to show you are sure about your choice.

they did allow me to ask qns though. they took 1 mth to inform me that i was successful. when i emailed them 3 weeks after the interview, they just gave a generic answer that "...application for the position is still under consideration. We will inform you the outcome in due course...".

Sorry that you don't feel good about how it went. I hope things turn out well for you. For my part, they did a few rebuttals or corrections but I tried my best to appear attentive and at least show some eagerness to learn. I'll be honest, I screwed some parts as well and I thought that was it. I think, as long as you stay and appear positive, there is still chance.

About results, I think that generally you can expect an answer 2 weeks onward from the date of interview. Basically, 2 weeks-2months. Its really unpredictable.

The interview happened very fast that I didn't even have time to glance upon their names. I felt that they were rushing me out. Ah well, it's over anyway. I'm not pinning any hope cause it went really bad.

But all the best on your career! And thank you for the pointers that your shared with me.

I was really looking forward to acing this interview. Really bummed out that it didn't turn out the way I wanted it. Ah, guess it's just my luck.

Definitely source for other jobs in the meantime, no point dwelling on something beyond our control

Haiz, strangely, when I was applying for ICA, i didn't receive any other interview/job offers. Now that I signed up, suddenly offers come flying in LOL. I've no regrets signing with ICA though, my mind is set on this career. Although I do wish that I have that options to choose from earlier.

Best of luck in your job search!
