I assume the full-time job has better compensation and job scope than the traineeship.

In this difficult situation, you can consider the following:

  1. Is there any way you can delay responding to the traineeship offer while expediting the full-time hiring process?

  2. Is taking up the traineeship and then finding another full-time job while on the traineeship a possible action?

  3. What are the costs of agreeing to the traineeship, only to find out later that you are hired for the full-time job, and you break the traineeship agreement?

  4. Can you afford to not have a job now? If so, for how long?

Ask yoursellf : Do I have dependents I am responsible for? No, can my savings last me 6 months or more without a job? Can traineeship help me network to a job?

It is good to know that SG United Skills Traineeship allows you to leave the programme without penalty when you get employed anytime during the 6 months traineeship programme. :)​​​
