Any tips on office brief?

#1
Hey all - i'm kinda new to this whole forum thing and i was hoping to get some tips on my first meeting at the careers office. I have an appointment in 2 days time and have been doing research on the roles i am aiming for (1st choice: Infantry - 2nd choice: Logistics) and have been training my fitness but was wondering how to come across as the best candidate straight from the word go.

Any tips or advice about this and all of the stages further on down the line would really help me out as i really want to pass with flying colours :)

Thanks

Just treat it as you would any other job interview.

Dress smartly, polish your shoes, be interested and interesting, but don't try to be someone that you're not.

As said above make sure you have your reasons for having chosen your options in the order that you have clear in your own mind. If you have an idea of which infantry regiment it is that you want to join so much the better, but don't worry about it if you haven't.

Nip down the local tattoo parlour and get yourself a decent tat. Something like an RLC badge superimposed on crossed bayonets. You thus have both angles already covered and your enthusiasm will be duly noted.

I was asked to prepare some questions i wanted the answers to - i already have a a gew good ones but are there any must-ask questions that the recruiter is looking for, or that will make me look better?

Just turn up looking reasonably presentable, the questions should be ones you want answered - not ones you think will generate a favourable reaction (they won't). Above all be yourself and don't tell lies even if you are tempted, you will be found out.
