Preparing for AO recruitment?

Government jobs are popular, and Administrative Officer (AO) is among the most popular ones.You may have some questions or even feel puzzled while preparing for the written examination and the interview of AO.No worries, here are the tips. 01 | Keep abreast of current affairs AO Mickey Wai advised, “To become an AO, candidates have to keep abreast of current affairs.” AOs are subject to regular postings to different bureaux and departments to assist in policy making.  In order to formulate suitable and practical policies for different bureaux and departments, AOs are required to develop a thorough understanding of current affairs, and be aware of the viewpoints of different stakeholders in the society, as well as the rationale behind their viewpoints. 02 | Form your own standpoint It is important to form your own standpoint after reading news. Mickey Wai suggested candidates to discuss with family and friends about current affairs to develop one’s own standpoint. Conflicting ideas are not necessarily bad; communication helps build mutual understanding.03 | Organise your ideas systematically For an AO, being able to organise and express one’s ideas systematically is a quality as important as forming one’s own standpoint.  Another AO Bernadette Lam reminded the candidates, “Stay calm when the interviewers challenge your standpoints.” It is natural to be nervous during interviews, but do remember to keep your presentation clear and concise. There are no model answers for interview questions. What the interviewers would like to know is your own standpoints and your ability to present them in a well-organised manner. Let’s recap: keep abreast of current affairs; form your own standpoint and express them in a systematic manner.  Most importantly, show the interviewers that you possess the qualities they look for in an AO and have the passion to serve the society.Good luck!

Why choose to be a Social Worker at the SWD?

        “Why do you want to be a social worker?”Almost every social worker has to give an answer to that question, to oneself and most probably to the interviewers as well.The answer could be quite simple, “To help the needy and the underprivileged.” “Then why do you choose to work at the Social Welfare Department?”Edmond and Zoe, social workers of the Social Welfare Department, hold their beliefs: to use their abilities to help the beneficiaries. Zoe worked at an Integrated Family Service Centre when she first joined the Social Welfare Department. Her duties included providing consultation, counselling and referral services, as well as organising counselling groups and activities for members of the public. She regarded the work at the Social Welfare Department different from that in a non-government organisation to a certain extent. Posts such as Probation Officer, Medical Social Worker at a Psychiatric Department of a hospital and Social Worker at the Adoption Unit are unique to the Social Welfare Department. Every day there could be unexpected situations, making the work of a social worker a challenging one.Edmond is currently working at the Medical Social Services Unit which mainly provides counselling service for psychiatric patients and their families and utilizes available social resources to facilitate their re-integration into society. He pointed out that social workers at the Social Welfare Department are required to perform law-related duties and prepare legal reports, which pose challenges to their abilities in investigation, organisation and report-writing. It is always the mission of a social worker to do their utmost to help and stand by every beneficiary. Contributing Editor: Sophie

Why do you need to take the CRE?

Almost every university graduate is advised to sit for the Common Recruitment Examination (CRE). But why? What is the reason for taking the examination? In fact, applicants for civil service posts at degree or professional level are required to obtain either Level 2 or Level 1 in the Use of English (UE) and Use of Chinese (UC) papers of the CRE for meeting the language proficiency requirements as stipulated by individual recruiting departments / grades.Please note that, however, specific requirements of individual recruiting departments / grades on the UE and UC papers will be set out in the relevant recruitment advertisements. Applicants for some posts at degree or professional level are also required to obtain a Pass in the Aptitude Test paper in addition to the requisite results in the UE and UC papers.Persons who wish to apply for civil service posts at degree or professional level should first obtain the requisite CRE results unless otherwise specified in the relevant recruitment advertisements.  Applicants may choose to attempt all, any, or any combination of the papers.  The CRE is independent of the recruitment process for any civil service post.  Applications for individual civil service posts should be made to the recruiting departments / grades direct.  The attainment of the requisite CRE results, however, does not imply that a candidate has fully met the entry requirements of any civil service post at degree or professional level. Vetting of academic or professional qualifications will be carried out by the recruiting departments / grades which may also conduct separate examinations and interviews.You may also contact the Civil Service Examinations Unit by phone at (852) 2537 6429, by e-mail to csbcseu@csb.gov.hk, or by post to Room 718, 7/F, West Wing, Central Government Offices, 2 Tim Mei Avenue, Tamar, Hong Kong for relevant details.
