    Hi Ian

    I found your information on interview tips really helpful. I have an interview with Clyde Marine coming up, any chance I could have a look at possible interview questions and answers you used to coach aspiring deck cadets with?? Would be a great help!

    kind regards, Jon

    I asked at an interview if there was any companies that would be recommended. The interviewer pointed out that he didn't even know what I liked on my sandwiches. Different things suit different people!

    I asked about college accommodation and parking if you decide to drive up and down every day as I live near and also questions about what happens on your first sea trip, try ask questions that are thought out and like a year down the line at college and stuff just to show you've researched it and understand what your taking on because the interviewer will most likely be able to see if you are actually suited and a potential cadet by the way you come across to them in the interview, your online application was good enough but now its just selling yourself to them and getting the points to hopefully get through

    Well done for getting an interview with CMT, I'm still waiting!! I have had an email with an attached letter explaining that my application is being processed and that they will be in touch in due course about interview. I'm not sure if that Letter even means I'll be lucky enough to get one? I'll be looking on here after Thursday to see how it went for you- and to quiz you about the questions!! Good luck.
