I successfully passed my formal interview today A lot 'easier' than I was expecting! For anyone out there yet to have theirs, just be yourself and don't work your self up. As long as you've read up on your preferred role and use common sense - you'll be fine! I answered "I don't know the answer for that" once and it did me no harm. Anyway I digress... My original first choice is/was WS(TSM), my careers advisor informed me the next intake for that role isn't till January 2010, and encouraged me to consider going for CISSM as the intake for that is pretty much immediately (pending DV clearance). I am very eager to get started, if I had my way I'd be there now. but I don't know if i'll end up regretting it if for sake of 9 months I may end up doing something I may not not enjoy as much. My reason for this post is to ask anyone out there who is CISSM or is versed in the role, what the pro's and cons are; i've already read the literature given to me at the AFCO and looking on the royalnavy.mod.uk website, am looking for a more 'real' view of the role. what do you love about it, what tasks do you hate having to do etc. Many thanks for any insight you are able to provide!
