Some businesses may be putting off their digital transformation plans in the hope that things will soon return to how things were like before Covid-19 struck. But brick-and-mortar stores are facing an existential crisis, and it’s time to embrace the digital push because there’s no turning back, writes our chief economist Selena Ling in her commentary for Channel NewsAsia. Thankfully, the Budget offers more help for such companies to do so.

We’re charging into the year of the ox with a new, ‘green’ partnership. Charge , an operator and provider of electric vehicle charging solutions, has plans of installing 10,000 EV charging points islandwide by 2030 and our strategic partnership will give them a boost. This will contribute to the Singapore government’s revised target of 60,000 EV charging points by 2030 which was announced last week as part of the Singapore Green Plan 2030.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OCBC Bank (Hong Kong) in Jun 2020

    Interview

    I received an online test with 2 behavioral questions and typed some background info of yourself. Once you are screened, HR would ask some CV-based questions through a phone call which is very casual and hence ask for interview availability. The final stage is manager interview with HR, all questions are behavioral and CV-based. They would ask some follow-up questions based on your answer.
