LHDN Interview [Updated]



So many people DM'ed me about this as invitation for online assessment has been sent out to thousands of candidates.

My experience however, was without the online assessment (SPA) as the recruitment activities previous year were done by LHDN. This year apparently, SPA is assisting LHDN with the process.


I've always wanted to join LHDN (IRB) for some reason. 

I've applied for a position last year (Dec 2015) and it's been forever so I thought it's a lost cause. 

Surprise, surprise I got an interview invitation early October. They reaalllyy took their time before calling in the candidates. Hehe

I went through the list of candidates and guess what. There's over 500 candidates including those from Sabah and Sarawak. That's a lot!

Before the interview naturally I googled for tips and even asked a junior who's a Pegawai Eksekutif at LHDN Cyberjaya. Their experience were horrifying. They got asked about nitty gritty technical things. 

Needless to say, I studied everything about LHDN.

I meant everything!

On the day itself, Nazli took the day off to drive me to Cyber. After briefing, they recorded our height and weight. That was weird.

There were several interview rooms. Each room had 2 interviewers. My turn was number 4. Which was lucky because some would have to wait until evening for their interview session.

Around 10am I got into the room. My interviewers were a man and a woman. They did not asked ANYTHING about LHDN to my dismay. Hahahaha

We had really nice and fun conversation. I requested to speak in English which the interviewer were more than happy to accommodate.

My interview ended in 20 minutes which I thought was really fast.

They only asked about me and everything that's in the application form eg current job scope, bonding with Khazanah, why I wanted to leave Sime, reasons for joining IRB and the only current issues they asked was about Budget 2017 which will happen in a few days time.

I really think any interview experience would depend on your panel. It can go both ways; either real easy or tough. 

Deep down in my heart, [waayyyy down] I know I aced the interview. 

By the way, they are looking for 120 officers, 80 for vacancies in Peninsular. That 18.5% acceptance rate.

Harap ada rezeki di LHDN.

Kadang-kadang we do our best, but still Allah nak bagi yang lebih baik untuk kita.


*Update - I got the job offer. But I declined em. Reasons being the base salary was RM2.9k (just got increased to RM3.3k recently) [that was not including the government servant allowance] and they only gave me 3 weeks notice. Such a short period of time !! And I don't want to spend my own money to pay for the 3-month notice period with Sime. 

**Plus, my boss counter offered + promotion. Alhamdulillah!!!!

    2. Hi Ireen. Last year there was no online assessment as the interview were handles by LHDN them self.

      This year, SPA will be doing the recruitment. Hence the standard interview procedures [online assessment + interview].

  4. Hi eva..what are the reasons you apply for the position of pegawai eksekutif penaksiran last time?
    I think for this year SPA will involved in the interview process compared to last year. Perhaps the job interview will not less that 20min unless they did not interested in the candidates. By experienced, short time of SPA job interview=unselected candidates. Longer time interview=he is the one.

    1. Hi there. To be honest, I first tried out for the exposure. I reckon the staffs in LHDN will be receiving a lot of training which could be difficult to get by in corporate environment. For the interview duration, I would agree but maybe in my case there were a lot of candidates, so they need to be efficient with the interview process. But yes, in general I agree with your notion.

  5. Hi,

    During the interview, is it dual language? And is it taking only one day interview for all candidates?

    Thank you in advance for your response.

    1. Hi, it depends on the interviewer I believe. Mine is dual language. And the interviews are scattered across few days as there are many candidates.

  7. Hello, Ms. Eva. I got an interview this March. Is there any particular tips of topic for me to study? By studying "all" as you mention, how could you memorize it all? Lastly, how formal is the iv? I'm from an engineering background fyi.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi. By ‘all’ I meant the typical basic things like the function of LHDN, their top management, income tax basics etc. I would say the iv is very normal (again, depends on your panel of interviewer). You may have to justify your engineering background i would think if you’re applying for a post in penaksiran/perakaunan.

    2. Hi. Thanks for replying fast enough. :)
      Initially I applied for Kejuruteraan based on my study background in Electrical but they gave me Penaksiran. Thanks for those topics because at least I know what kind of area to explore. Last time before assessment, even online steps I read and try to remember, "too much too handle".

      Delete
    3. I wear a simple kurung with heels. I don’t know. I always feel blazer is a bit much, but it’s up to you. In the end, as long as you’re presentable and neat, i think that’s okay ๐Ÿ˜„
