Yesterday on 20th January, i went to a campus in Jakarta for a test held by Japan prominent bank. I thought there will be as easy as prior tests, considering the interviewer called me via phone and she also asked me to come to company presentation and test. “You are invited, will you attend this presentation and test?” I answered “yes” without considering there will be another test on same day. I think i will have enough time.
Thus, the presentation started. It was quite fun and tempting, the benefit is a “whoa!”. I convinced this is the best company in offering benefit and career path. Then come the discussion session. A girl asked, “How many people will you recruit in each batch?” A good question since i know the applicant was 2000 and 200 selected to do a test. The Bank rep said “Our target for this year is 40, otherwise we will recruit below that number” This bank have 2 batch per year. Let’s divide into two then it will be 20 people recruited for each batch, damn.
According to HR, the entire selection process consist of 10 steps.
- CV screening
- Cognitive test
- English proficiency test, TOEIC Basis
- Panel discussion 1
- Panel discussion 2
- Interview with management
- Interview with GM
- Medical test
I never feel so lucky to be invited in second step, but yeah.. if i surpass those ordeals. Means that i’m a lucky stupid. I never take english course. But let’s hope the best as far as i can. Struggling hard. The announcement come on 27th January 2012 via web, despite of success or not, i’m grateful to do the test. Thank you for invite me :)
