Afternoon all,

Firstly, I have only just signed up but I've been using this forum for information for months it really is fantastic - thank you all.

I have my psychometric test booked in (applying for an officer role), and I am told I'll have an interview immediately after this, regarding my answers on the OAQ and the results of the test. From the internet it seems that the interview after the RT is the "Initial Officer Career Interview", but some sources confuse me... my question is will the interview on this day be the initial interview or the SIFT interview? From what I've read the SIFT interview is significantly harder, so I'd really like to know.

I have tried calling my advisor and I'll shoot an email over shortly, but thought I'd ask here first.

Thanks in advance

It was called the IOCI until a few weeks back, it's now called a Career Discussion. It'll doubtless be remarkably similar to an IOCI.

The Sift is no longer called a Sift either, but the subsequent successor will be remarkably similar to a Sift.

It's what SO1s are for :)

Thank you for your swift reply, that's extremely useful.

My understanding is that the interview I'll have straight after my RT (Career Discussion) will be primarily about the contents of the questionnaire, along with my personal background and knowledge of the career etc. opposed to the sift which involves knowledge of the navy, its operations and ships, units etc. would you say this is accurate? Just so I can tailor my preparation accordingly.

Thanks again.

I had my RT a couple of months ago, and while we were waiting for results, an Lt took me out to some little office.

He told me I passed, then asked a few questions about my application, what I thought of yesterday's London attack (yesterday at the time, obviously) and what the next stages would be - I got some booklet thing designed to help with SIFT, but if that's scrapped it'll be interesting to see if it's useful.

Absolutely nothing like an interview, so don't worry about it at all - a little knowledge know won't hurt, but don't try to learn everything just yet. He didn't even ask me much about my career - just that based on my A-levels that I'm currently doing I should consider engineering officer as well as warfare (no thanks).

Course, every AFCO is different, so don't think this is definitely what you'll get!

If I'm not too late, that is.
