Royal Navy Officer Interview Training
During the selection process for becoming a Royal Navy officer, you will be required to sit a number of interviews.
The first interview will be held at the Armed Forces Careers Office whilst the remaining interviews will be carried out as part of the Admiralty Interview Board (AIB).
The information on this website and our online Royal Navy Officer interview training will help you to score high at all interviews.
ROYAL NAVY OFFICER CURRENT AFFAIRS QUESTIONS
Current affairs are a very important area of your preparation. You must carry out plenty of research in relation to current affairs. Not only will you need it during the interview(s), but it will also assist you during the essay element of the AIB.
Here are a few important tips to help you research current affairs effectively:
Be careful what paper(s) you read. The type of paper you read will reflect you as a person. If you tell the interviewer that you are an avid reader of the Sun or the Daily Star, you may not be officer material. In the build up to AIB, try reading the Times, or another quality newspaper.
We would strongly recommend that you subscribe to ‘The Week’. This is a fantastic journal that will breakdown the week’s stories for you. This will save having to buy lots of different newspapers.
Consider reading The Economist. Once again, this is a quality journal that will provide you with lots of current affairs information.
Don’t just research affairs that are relevant to the Royal Navy or the Armed Forces in general. Other topics are just as important!
