  • Clyde interview (already a cadet though)

    i have got a cadetship with a large shipping company for this september (and post on here). I applied for a cadetship with clyde in september last year for this year, they have made me go through 3 different applications and giving me the runaround on the phone before they got to the stage of accepting me for an interview. I have decided to accept the interview just so that i can gain more interview experience as i got accepted on my first and only interview in my life. I dont need any help with the interview ive read it all on here before , but i have a problem with my passport as i now have a C1-D which i understand i would not be able to obtain without having gained a cadetship or employment. I have thought that i could say i have damaged my passport on the way home from a holiday but i have a photocopy and am ordering a fast track passport.
    Does this sound plausible to you? or do you have better ideas?

    ( i do know this is not necessarily the best thing to do but i feel more experience in interviews would be a good thing for me, obviously i would not be able to accept a cadetship if offered)

    Please forgive me if I sound harsh, but I would recommend declining the interview. You'd be wasting Clyde's time, taking an interview place from someone who might actually want the position and spending money on various things needlessly. Interview practice is all well and good, but not at the price of honesty. Honesty is hugely important - if you lack integrity you will eventually get tripped up.

    Not to sound harsh, as I say, but concentrate on your cadetship.

      I have to agree with CD it does just seem like you would be wasting your's and their time. Not to mention the also run a recruitment company so annoying them now might come back to bite you. Best to send a polite thanks but no thanks letter.

        i know it is wrong but i got so annoyed with clyde's constant time wasting with me that when i was offered an interview i just said yes without even thinking about it, i know it seems like a stupid revenge vendetta but its not.
        I have also thought about it taking a place form another cadet and thought to turn it down, but, when i phoned clyde to do this i was told the interviews at that location are not ful and will not be. i know its not much of an excuse but i cant properly explain over the internet but if i could im sure it wouldn't seem as bad.

          I would say only take the interview if you were considering going with ClydeMarine otherwise as above.

            Honestly unless you are planning on taking the place or for a backup or something then cancel it they should understand, but your experience is almost identical to mine and i am still waiting to hear from them (to turn them down.)
            i would say if you must go then explain it to them at the very least at the end of the interview.

              It does sound a bit like revenge to be perfectly honest. I can understand you feel a bit miffed about having your time wasted, but I think you really need to let it drop. At the most base level, it's dishonest. Suck it up, move on and get yourself ready for September.

                Christ if your going to let that affect you so much you'll go to an interview just to reject it I worry what you would be like if someone properly messed you about.

                  Honestly, since you're having such a headache with the C1-D visa issue in your passport, if I was in your position I would just decline the interview and forget the whole thing
