Before you all start, I've used the search function already, and I've got my appointment booked with the resettlement bloke and a CTW is in the offing, but for now I need help of a more pressing nature. I have already started applying for jobs, and a WO2 told me that the CV was just a door-opener for an interview. So, I sent off some applications for a few jobs I think I could easily do, but embellished my career so far just a little. I have been lucky enough to be invited for an interview for three so far, and have had a telephone interview for one of them already (one where my CV claims I was a Colonel). On the basis of my phone interview, I don't doubt that I can pull the wool over the eyes of most civvies, but if one of them gets a bit sus, do you think there's any way they could check up on me? I took the expedient of hinting at an sf background so I could avoid answering any awkward questions. Sensible replies only please.
