Dress up smart as a button and you are always off to a good start.

Make sure you polish your shoes including the side of the soles.

It depends what the interview is for.

If its for McDonalds, a suit is probably a bit OTT.

If its for the local quarry, I'd recommend a rugged set of boots and a donkey jacket.

If its for a place at NASA, wear a shiny silver jacket. It looks 'hitec'.

If you are going for the Senior Lecturer post at Crawley Polytechnic, dont bother. I've already got the job.

lord_flash, FO i asked a serious question if u have nothign constructive to say dont bother posting..

Yes, you did ask a serious question. Unfortunately, you didn't specify what the interview was for.

I'll kindly ask you not to tell me to 'FO' please.

Lesson 1. Forces humour.

lol, its jus for the army obviously, any advice would be greatly appreciated, sry for the arrogance

As smart as you can be really. It doesnt cost much to put across a smart image.

Remember, you can never redo a first impression.

As for shirt pants and tie. I'd suggest putting some trousers on as well.

Be confident but not cocky or arrogant.

Answer the questions. Dont waffle or bullshit.

Be polite but dont be a hom.

Show you are genuinely interested.

Whatever Regt or Corps you are hoping to go into, make sure you know as much as you can about it.

As for what questions they might ask you? Dunno. The Duke of Wellington did my interview. ;)

A sensible response there Flashy apart from the Duke of Boots interviewing you.

A few tips for you Locky, turn up smart as you can polished shoes , ironed kit and sh*t, shower and shave. Recruiters prefer you to be in a suit but also realise that applicants come from different backgrounds so show youve put effort in.

Turn up early for the interview, Be courtious and chatty but not over confidence. Concentrate on the recruiter and dont start looking around the room whilst you should be focussing on one spot. keep your hands by your side, dont start windmilling and figetting. Try and elaborate your answers and dont just answer with yes and no.
Know your job briefs inside out....What the job entails, where your going (basic/trade) how long, what you'll do there etc.
Dont try and bluff answers or lie as it will come back to bite you at late interview.

Dont bite either as you did with Flash as you will realise about squaddie humour and for all you know He could be your interviewer (god help us all :wink: )

Good luck, do your best and just remember Recruiters just want you to give info so they can write about you on the soldier selection record, if you dont talk they cant write anything on you.

If it's your first interview then just wear a shirt and tie and black pants. A blazer if you have one. In this interview you talk about job roles and you might do your test. The second interview is with the "Boss" of the office. He will ask you questions.

This is very bad news for me as I currently happen to be the Senior Lecturer at Crawley Polytecnic.

I thought things where a bit odd at work, but just put it down to paranoia.

Just make sure your desk is clear by the morning.......
