  • Best times to apply for September or January intakes?

    Im retaking my GCSE's this coming September year, and I'm planning to apply for different cadetship programmes, (Clyde marine, carnival, maersk, princess ect), and I was just wondering what time is it best to apply for September and January intakes? Thanks :-)

      If you're looking at September 2012, it would be worth applying as soon as possible for those companies that take applications year-round (Carnival, Princess etc...). For the others, keep an eye on their websites to see when applications open, though there's nothing wrong with posting a covering letter and CV expressing interest.

          Make it less than one page, a quick run-down of who you are, your education, experience, achievements and why you want to work for them.

              For your covering letter it should be a few small paragraphs explaining who you are and what you currently do, what you offer and why you would be a good fit for the company.

              CV put in a small personal statement, your qualifications, your work history, any other achievements then finish off with your references.

              Covering Letter should be 1 page, CV no more than 2 or it won't be properly read.
