Hi dreamchaser,
Thanks for ur PM, I couldnt reply u cuz I havent made sufficient posts..

Anyway, my 2nd attempt failed again today, dint even get to show them my skin or veins.. failed at 1st round.. the 2 male interviewers were kinda strict, e passing rate for my group is only 3/10..

In the last interview, the interviewers asked us to intro ourselves n why we wanna join SIA.. I gave a short and sweet ans n got in, those who gave long stories were booted out.. the last time round, the interviewer were both females.. this time round, we were only asked to do a self-intro not more than 1 min, as usual I gave a short and sweet ans, and to my surprise, those who gave long stories got in.. one of e gals doesnt even seemed that keen on getting the job, she ended her speech with: " hmmm.. so im just trying for SIA gal and see how it goes... " and she was selected.. If she was in my group for Feb interview, she probably will fail..

Now, it really confused me on what actually are the interviewers looking for.. different interviewers seem to want different things.. Im feeling really demoralised now, perhaps this job is not suitable for me... Feels like each time I go, though only twice, my confidence are jus shattered into pieces, it seems as though I was judge, not for my qualities, but for my luck.. I am usually a confident person, an undergrad with good degree and I have a genuine passion in customer service.. I have even rejected a couple of more prestigious n higher paying jobs, unfortunately the interviewers jus did not see this passion within me......

Now i realized those of u who had e courage to try for 10 times or more jus to reach ur dream are truly worthy of praise.. I dint know, and couldnt have imagined it would be this difficult.. even though, I am emotionally prepared for failure, I still feel the wall of my self-esteem cracking...............

Nevertheless, for those of u who succeeded today, CONGRATULATIONS!

hey snow,
ur chicken rice question is a funny 1. I think they are trying to come up with alot of different questions to test us. I failed at round 1 as well. April then.

beautiful_river, sometimes 1st round is about luck and whether the interviewer likes you or not? (my grp interviewer was also two man, two older man...Uncle i would say) He even started asking " I am sure some of you have been through this round. Who are those who have been through this round?" A few of us, including me, raised their hands. All those who raised their hands wasnt selected.My room was the 2nd last room, right infornt of the lift. Passing rate 3/10. My friend's grp passing rate was also 3/10.

Nevertheless, alot of ppl has never given up despite of the numerous times of failing. I think we shouldnt as well. At least I will continue to try until july, which marks its 1 year! So should u.
Jia You!!

dun give up ya...even i had failed today...i told myself...the next time wld be better :wink: ...

I will keep on trying for the rest of 2008 or even till the day i graduate frm uni, which is in another 2yrs time....

I think i will sound crazy...if i was meant to succeed after 20 or 30 tries...i will still go for it...Probably it's my character, if i want something...i will not give up...
Or even when the SIA pple says: "OMG...U again!! We have seen u countless times alrdy!!!!"...I will still go for it :P


SO....do not give u ya....Jiayou...

Went for the interview today but can't make it to the 2nd round. Did not fare well today as i was too nervous. And bunning up my hair and wearing uncomfortable clothes plays a part to it as well. 1st attempt so kinda screwed up. But it was quite an eye-opener experience to me tho. So surprised to see so many people attending the interview.

Seriously, i do not understand what SIA is actually looking for. My group's passing rate is 4/10. And it kinda surprising when some of the girls that were selected wasnt good in delivering their speech. And instead quite a few who spoke fluently and fare better than those selected ones were booted out.

Maybe it really depends on luck. Still doubting whether i should give it another try. But this forum has definitely boost my courage to attend the interview. One word of advice, really gotta wear smthing that you feel comfortable with, it will make you feel confident.
