Got called late evening yesterday. Interview next Monday. You might want to call them, the phone number you provided may have been wrong.

Read up on what SPRING does and what the organization is about. There's a total of 4 rounds of interview. Basically be prepared and confident of yourself! Good Luck!

Hi teddynuts! I'm invited to the second round and would like to get some advice from you... what are the activities we have to do during the second round, apart from the 5mins presentation? What will the panel ask during the Q&A session of the presentation?

THere are a mixture of group and indivdiual activities. Individual activity is to deliver a presentation...the 5 min presentation will be on a topic. Spring will email you with 2 topics to choose from and you select one topic, prepare a presentation and deliver it. There are 2 other group activities that are scenario based and test how you work as a team, lead the team and tackle problems. The Q&A session is more of a clarification of any doubts the assessor has during your presentation, and to see how well you can think of your feet. No technical questions or questions too hard to answer BUt it requires critical thinking. You have to think on ur feet.
