    It would probably help to know what sector / company, also what CoC do you have at present as this can often make a difference to how the interview questions are pitched

        I would suggest learning as much about the company as possible and try and throw in any knowledge into the interview (routes / expansion plans / company history)

        Either put across your knowledge of roro / ropax / pax vessels or if you don't have any experience do some research on it and emphasise you learn quickly as shown in my previous role etc

        With those sort of chief mate positions good character fit and the ability to lead western crews are essential so show how strong your character is but equally how you get along well and communicate well.

        The usual, early, well dressed, keen, ask a few relevant questions are obviously a no brainer!

        Good luck
