  • Applications Progressing!

    Good afternoon all!

    I sent of a CMT Engineer application on Monday, got a call today for an interview in Southampton on August 2nd for the September induction.

    I'm stoked about this. But now incredibly nervous, this is my first shot at the dream career...

    Do any of you have advice for the engineering interview?

    Then, if by some divine miracle, I got in. Is it going to be easy to sort everything out in about.. a month? (accomodation etc etc)...

    Ugh but yay.

    Congratulations. Regards interview advice just revise what the company is about, what ships they manage, whats going off in the news. Also prep an answer for questions of why merchant navy / why engineering. Other than that act polite, dress smart and be confidant.

        For getting organised in the time, wont be a problem CMT will have reserved a space in Halls for the number its taking on, you then just need to confirm (altohugh check this when you get the offer). obviuosly theres stuff needed but its really not hard to find,and you will need the money to pay for the first month halls etc so start saving.

        As for interview, know the reasons why, know sometihng about ship types, watches, duties be smart confident and not cocky. Depending on your age wear a suit, if you dont have one a cheap black one from asda will suffice and then you cna use it at college once you sow the patch on. good luck anyhow.
        you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

              I agree, he should! It was good advice and should be shared

              I won't leak it though, I'm not a News of the World noob!
