FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why are you offering an Executive Workshop?
This is to increase the employability of all our applicants. We have noted that the CVs of applicants are not written for logistics companies to understand. By offering a customised class, participants will be able to understand the needs of the industry, write it clearly in their CV, and then come across as a more valuable candidate to potential employers.
How does the workshop increase employability?
The curriculum is customised for applicants of the logistics PCP. This is because for the PCP, you are not applying to a specific job but to the industry. Hence, you need your CV to reflect what is important to the industry. So the Executive Workshop (EW) will have these distinct segments:
1. Overview of the supply chain & logistics industry
2. Understanding valuable competencies for the industry
3. Adopting the right mindset to succeed in the industry
4. Writing your CV to meet the needs of the industry
5. Understanding how to present yourself for a successful interview
At the end of the Workshop, ALL participants will be interviewed by SCALA employees with the expressed intention of shortlisting suitable participants for the PCP. Successful participants will proceed along the selection process. Unsuccessful participants maybe given one more chance at the interviewer's discretion. If they are successful then, they will also be put through the process. If they are not successful, they will be counselled on ways to improve themselves and suggested other options to take other than the Logistics/Supply Chain PCP.
I have been to an Executive Workshop before, can I attend this one again?
Yes you can because this is an unfunded initiative by SCALA.
I have applied to so many PCPs, jobs, and organisations but they didn't even respond to me.
How do I know you are different?
We cannot say anything about other organisations, but at SCALA, we want to make sure that all applicants have an outcome to their application. But they need to understand that the industry may not be suitable to everyone, even if they want to attend the PCP. Hence, we need to have a way to tell the suitable applicants from those who might find better prospects from other industries. This is the reason why SCALA is bringing this very unique programme to you.
At the end of Exective Workshop, participants will know clearly whether they can proceed with the PCP or not, and then make appropriate plans. The worst thing is not that they have been rejected for the PCP, but they don't know what is happening.
That will not happen with SCALA.
If we are selected for the PCP, will you guarantee us a job?
There is no guarantee in anything. While you are chosen to come into the PCP, it does not mean that you will be offered a job by the company. However, once you proceed past Step Two, you have a better chance of landing a job. A lot still relies on your own actions. You will have to apply to the open positions. You will have to position yourself well. You will have to sell the value you bring to the employer. That is in your hands. Do that well, and you will get a job. Don't do that well, and you will find yourself waiting.
What is the minimum timeline to expect before I can get a job and begin the PCP?
There is no guarantee that you will be able to proceed through the whole process. But you can expect a typical end-to-end time frame of about 3 months.
