SIFT INTERVIEW - one tiny question

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by ninjadabber, Apr 3, 2013.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hey, does anyone know what SIFT means, what it stands for?

    Many thanks
     
  2. Nope! Sorry.

    A sift interview outside the RN normally means that interviewers will sort through applications to see who they wish to attend an interview.

    Fraid you will have to wait for one of the CA staff to reply to this one.
     
  3. Selection Interview For T**ts. :salut:

  4. I always just assumed it came from the word "sift" which would refer to "sifting" out candidates with real potential to pass the AIB.

    Sift:

    [TR]
    [TD]VERB
    [TABLE="class: ts"]
    [TR]
    [TD]Put (a fine, loose, or powdery substance) through a sieve so as to remove lumps or large particles.[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    [TD][/TD]

    [TD]NOUN
    [TABLE="class: ts"]
    [TR]
    [TD]An act of sifting something, esp. so as to isolate that which is most important or [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
     
  5. AIB - assumption!! May be correct but in the services assumption is the mothers of ALL **** ups!
     
  6. Didn't really think it was relevant; I knew what it was, which was the important bit.
