  • Too Late?

    Is it too late to apply for this coming Septembers intake? Are there any companies still open (decent ones)

    Re: Too Late?

    Many companies say they are recruiting right up till the end of August. I would advise you get in touch with as many as possible, say you're really interested and see if they'll give you an interview

        Any particular companies anyone would suggest? Is it worth hitting SSTG and Clyde so late?

          It's probaly worth checking with everyone, just a quick email or phone call to check if they're still taking applications before filling out the forms.

            Have you got a stonking letter and CV? Send em out to the smaller companies like Chiltern, they seem to be better at replying.

              I know Clyde Marine have stopped interviewing for September intake, but when I went for my SSTG interview there weren't many spaces left, and that was back a few months ago.

                I'm sure I read on the SSTG website just before they updated it a couple of weeks ago that they had stopped interviewing people for Sept. I might be wrong though.

                  Try Viking, they got back to me about 2 weeks ago asking if I was still interested, so I guess they're probably needing some more cadets.

                    I think that's just a turn of phrase dear... the HR staff of some of these organisations tend to have a limited repertoire.

                      I got lucky with Trinity. I'd give them a go if I were you.

                      You just need to send them a detailed profile, they'll cover the rest in an inital phone call from Chiltern and then the follow up interview.
