Couple of observations...

1. Degree in networking <> leadership skills.

2. If you want to use your degree core subject I guess you'll be looking at an Engineering specialisation; as a professional engineer can I respectfully suggest that you improve your standard of written English!

I realise that the above don't appear constructive criticism, so....

At an AIB type scenario the interview will be looking for you to be able to effectively plan and complete a team task (crossing a bottomless pit of shark-infested custard using only a packet of Smarties type task) and take part in a table-top discussion exercise. You'll need to be able to reach appropriate decisions quickly and put your point across assertively (as opposed to aggressively!) and convince others of the merits of your approach. In the practical tasks, again you'll need to be decisive and assertive and be able to propose an efficient approach and communicate this to your team in such a manner as that they can carry out the task.

How can you practice this? Are you involved in any uniformed organisation, e.g. Scouts, Cadets, RNR?

Good luck

Hiya,

I’ve been working on my written English, I have severe dyslexia so written and spelling is my biggest hold up but I am working hard to improve both,

I’ve applied to join as a E(IS) officer,

I was a sea cadet from 1995 till 2002 and a Adult volunteer for about a year and half after that, I had to leave due to my courses at univirsty not ending until 10pm,

Anyways I really appreciate all the help and support I have been getting from people on this site
