    surely you should know this if you applied to the company? is it CMT by any chance, as they send you out info about the different ships.

      You should have really known the ships before you applied. At the end of the day, thats what you will working on?
      As *user* mentioned, if you are applying with CMT, they send you out a booklet with all the Ship types, crewing numbers etc.
      I'm not 100% sure on what other recruiters or companies do.
      My only advice would be to study your arse off as the competition is tough and this year alone, there have been lots of applications, so you need to know your stuff.

        Depends who you have applied to......go to their web sites and rummage around.

        There's this thing called Google in case you never heard of it

        Yes I work for the big blue canoe company.
        No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

                  I know the basics about ships but there is a wide verity, is the basics enough I have about a page on each type of Ships from Oil tankers to Cargo and Offshore vessels. With all the different types of ships and such, I have the average weight, how they are constructed alittle of the history their operations.. I know quite abit, I was just wondering what ELSE I should know, im sorry to put it across like I know nothing...

                            Yup be prepared for the classic interview type questions like what are you strenghts and weaknesses? and what do you think makes a good team member? Also have a good think about

                            Why do you want to join the MN?

                            and

                            How will you cope with being away for X months at a time?

                            You are likely to be asked both of these.

                            Glad I didnt apply this year it does sound alot more tricky than when I applied.

                              We have our own specialised wiki that will soon be reborn and should be an even better source than wikipedia on all things maritime.
