Hi Kyle,

Your interview will cover the following:-

You - split down into Homelife, Education, Work and Sparetime activities.

They will be looking for things that link you with your branch (Diver), previous communal living experiences, time away from home, Youth clubs, uniformed cadets, leadership experience etc. This is the time you can sell yourself to your recruiter. They will also ask about your current fitness training regime (Running, CV fitness, Swimming etc).

They will then ask you about the selection process i.e. Medical, PJFT (1.5 mile run), security clearance, PEDA. They will ask you what you think will happen at the PEDA? They will ask about basic training at Raleigh and your specialist training at the defence diving school (Horsea island). They will ask you what you think a MCD does in the RN, where you might serve at sea(Sandown/Hunt class) and ashore (Diving teams/bomb disposal)? They will ask you about your terms and conditions of service i.e. Pay, leave and contract.

The main thing to do really is relax and talk to your recruiter. Don't think about it being a job interview more a chat with a friend about your future within the RN. Remember to dress smartly and arrive at least 15 minutes early. Switch off your mobile phone and nip to the toilet before going into the careers office. Don't be affraid to ask any questions you've got about joining the RN. If you don't know something tell them that you can't remember, but that you will find out and tell them later. Normally they will tell you about it at the end of the interview.

Finally remember this is your time to sell yourself, you know all about you and what you have done, we don't.

Best of luck with the interview.

Hello, i have just passed my RT test for MCD, i have been given a date for my interview, however my medical has been booked straight after my interview? can i still fail an interview?
 
Yes you can fail an interview, otherwise it would be known as a chat. Dont worry yourself to much though, some of the no hopers who turn up on day one of recruit training begger belief, if they can get in then just about anyone can. Just stand next to them as often as possible before they get kicked out...it'll make you look good.

Ask yourself though, why did they want to stand next to you. :dwarf:
