42 11 15

HAVE you ever started a new job and had the realisation quickly dawn on you that you may have been deceived in the interview and, in fact, the reality of the role is rather different from the one sold to you during the recruitment process?

Well, you are not alone, as a whopping 92 percent of Singaporean job seekers and employees say job realities tend to differ from expectations set during the interview process.

Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, asked more than 900 job seekers and employees in Singapore if the realities of a job – such as hours, workload and responsibilities – differ from the expectations set by the company when they were recruited.
