    Advice please - Interview next week but not sure of some of the requirements

    Hi all

    An agency approached me having seen my CV on a jobsite, put me forward for a position and now I've got an interview.

    The job really excites me. The thing is I don't even fully understand some of the (Non-Technical) terminolgy the job spec.

    I am my own worst critic and probably tick many of the boxes without realising it.

    I'm sure they wouldn't invite me to interview if they didn't like my CV, but I want to make sure it is worth both our whiles.

    Is there anyone there who wouldn't mind if I PM'd them the job spec and offer their interpretion of some of the things I am confused about?

    Thanks

    Sling it this way if you want another look.

    Top tip: ECM != Electronic Counter-Measures .

    Hi all, had the interview today and it went quite well, thanks for all your help. I didn't do so good on the technical test, but it is more of a managerial role to I'm still hopefull.

    Update

    Didn't get the job - they said cause I didn't hit the mark technically - no surprises there.

    However, they've invited me back for a position "below" the job I went for, (doesn't bother me, I'm not a snob) - better prospects and major International company so I'm still positive about it - fingers crossed if they at least match my current package I'll say yes if they offer it me.

    Thank you to all of you that gave me advice, at least I made an impression.
