  • Application Submission?

    Im hoping to apply to a number of companies for the sept 2011 intake, but im just wondering when i should apply? I sit my mock examinations in 3 weeks (A whole year before our exams, IB ) so will have academic grades to submit on top of my GCSE's.
    Thanks

    Oh, i have also emailed various companies asking this, but its a long weekend and they will most likely take a long time/not reply.

    Re: Application Submission?

    I'm sure when I asked GCNS..they said don't apply after November. I don't know when you should start applying, but yeah..after November, it would take longer to get replies, because a lot more people will be applying around that time. (:

        If applying for cruise ships though, it would be best to apply earlier (:

              Re: Application Submission?

              I applied to the usual bunch of companies in Jan this year. Got a letter from SSTG for an interview but they are so busy it's not until May. I think they won't have many places left by then.
              Got rejected from Carnival, have not heard anything at all from Princess or Shell, Maersk were full even in Jan but said they would keep my application for 2011. I will apply to BP this week.

              Someone told me to apply in Jan that's why I did it then. As it happens I think that was wrong and Nov time would have been best.

                  I think Trinity House are always on the lookout for more clankies. Deck as well, obviously, but I don't think they get many clanky applicants.

                    I think clankies are always in demand?? As with my RFAIB I was told that if I passed I was pretty much guaranteed a job in June as I was the only one there that had applied to be one

                      Ah but clanky = oily, greasy, noisy, being stuck in the bowels of the ship. Not as attractive, for many, as the life of "glamour" led by the deckies.
