Internal Market Place (IMP) for Public Officers

FAQs

  1. How is IMP different from Careers@Gov?

    There are a number of features unique to IMP that can better support officers like yourself in searching for career development opportunities within the Public Service:

    • Shorter application form allows you to apply for jobs much faster than on Careers@Gov; and
    • Function to deposit your resume so that you can be considered for upcoming job vacancies that match your work experience and skill-sets. 
  2. Do I need to apply for a job through both IMP and Careers@Gov?

    You will only need to apply for the job once via the IMP.

  3. Do I need to create a new account to apply for jobs in the IMP?

    As the IMP is hosted on Careers@Gov, officers need not create a new account on IMP. Officers should log in using their Careers@Gov account. Those without an existing Careers@Gov account will need to create one on IMP as part of the application process.

  4. Can I use my Internet-separated office laptop to apply for jobs in IMP?

    As IMP is a platform hosted on the Internet, you need an Internet-enabled device to access it.

  5. I have trouble uploading my resume/documents on IMP.

    Please ensure that you are uploading a permitted file type. There will be a system notification if the format is not valid. Please also ensure that your files are not zipped or protected from virus scans. If your file does not upload after a few minutes, please cancel and try uploading again.

  6. I have uploaded different versions of my resume and cover letter when applying for different jobs on the IMP. Would the recruiter be able to access all the documents or will the documents from my most recent job application override everything?

    Agency HR will only be able to access the documents tied to each job application. Therefore, documents in your most recent job application will not override those uploaded in other job applications.

  7. How do I check my application status?

    Click on the ‘My Account’ button at the top of the IMP homepage and log in using your email address and password. The status of your job applications will be shown on the ‘Home’ tab. You may also withdraw your applications here.

  8. When will I get a response to my job application?

    Depending on the volume of applications received, it may take up to 8 weeks after an advertisement has closed for agencies to shortlist and contact the shortlisted candidates.

    You may also contact the agency directly to enquire about your job application status. The relevant contact details may be found on the agency’s corporate website.

  9. I have submitted my application form. Can I attach additional documents or edit my attached resume in the application form?

    Once you have submitted your application form and any accompanying documents, they cannot be edited. You may choose to withdraw your application and re-submit it, if the application deadline has not passed.

  10. I have browsed through the job vacancies available on IMP but was unable to find a position that I am interested in. Is it possible for me to deposit my resume in IMP so that interested recruiters can contact me when suitable positions are available?
    Yes, this is possible with the ‘Deposit Resume’ function, which you can find on the IMP homepage.
