    Experience is experience, its worth a try!

    The application method is a little weird.. phycometric testing etc...

    * a friend of mine said I was lucky to not get the job.. but as I dont have any personal experience I would suggest trying to get it, if anything stick it out for a year then move on*

    Good luck though!

    I'd go for it.

    You can't ever not go for a job where you get the chance to say "Housten, we have a problem".:twisted:

    I would go for it. Try to do what ever is possible in your situation to benefit your career. I know when I first started I did a 2 month stage for free.
