Interview Training for Federal Law Enforcement

The most successful program to prepare for your Federal Law Enforcement Interview


REAL SUCCESS STORIES

Preparation is the Key

The FBI Phase Two Interview and the FBI Phase Three Interview are the most intense and challenging interviews of their kind. I have coached thousands of candidates for the FBI as well as many others for jobs with other federal agencies. The packages that I offer are intended to get you ready to feel prepared, confident, and to be able to answer the questions that are asked with as much ease as possible.

I have been coaching FBI candidates for over 15 years and have had a wonderful success rate helping people pass this unusual interview. The challenge is that the agents interviewing you will only know one thing about you - your name. They will not have access to any applications or other documents - it is a "blind date."

You CANNOT WING this interview and pass.

Because the interview is primarily "behavioral based," preparation will be ESSENTIAL. Without it you will fail and have to wait a year or more before you can re-again. What a waste! AND if you fail again you're done.

  • I have had clients referred to me by internal bureau employees as high as directors.
  • I have had my law enforcement coaching program for the past 18 years.
  • I do not have insider information – or questions.
  • I have not taken the test myself.
  • I have worked with over 2000 candidates from all of the agencies.
  • My clients learn how to “interview” – “how to have confidence in presenting themselves” ——and primarily how to “be prepared” for these interviews.


*The FBI does not recommend sources for assistance with preparation, however, individuals may refer to sources and materials based on their own personal experience.

Tips for the Structured Interview
(FROM THE FBI WEBSITE)

  • Be yourself.
  • The evaluators will be taking notes during the interview to document the results. Do not let this distract you.
  • Provide detailed information when answering the interview questions. Do not be modest in your responses. To provide the best examples of your skills and abilities, draw from all of your life's experiences (not just the most recent ones).
  • Remember that the interview panel has no applicant information about you. They have not seen your application. They only know your name.
  • Do not make assumptions about what the evaluators are seeking. The interview instructions are straightforward. There are no "trick" questions.
  • Study your resume and be able to speak about how your experiences match with the critical skills and abilities required of Intelligence Analysts.

"I passed – second time!!

Today is a little emotional because I remember how heartbroken I was last year when I did not pass the interview the first try, but I am pleased to inform you that I passed the phase 2 interview, and I believe that it was your coaching that made the difference!You were hard on me, and that is exactly what I needed; you told me what I needed to hear not what I wanted to hear and that truly made the difference. I went into the interview calm and relaxed, and I set the tone of the interview with the “Why do you want to be an FBI agent?” and the “Tell us about yourself.” questions. You helped me make my responses so much personal and I believe that the five points made a huge difference. I received positive body language from the agents from the very start of the interview and my confidence continued to grow. I recited all of my stories just like we practiced, and there were a few questions when I had to morph my stories to fit what they asked me: another technique you helped me with. The exercises that you taught me along with you story critiques gave me tremendous confidence, and I felt that I was in control of the entire interview. I hope my experience can serve as motivation to others that have failed phase 2 the first time, as they need to know this: you’re so much better after a year- and knock it out of the park.Anybody that is all in with this process and really wants to reach new heights, I would encourage them to hire you and embrace your teachings. I would also tell them that paying for your services is an investment in their dream; you were a complete game changer for me, as my performance was a night and day difference compared to my first attempt. Thanks for everything, Carole.

"I just wanted to leave a review and say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I made it. I am in! It is all because of you. I was on my last and final try of the phase II interview and you gave me the tools and confidence I needed to pass.

For anyone that is even thinking of hiring you ….do it!

Carole is the reason I am here I am because of her coaching. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for helping me fulfill my dreams. Can’t thank you enough - Josh

"Was there anything that I assisted you with that was especially helpful this time around?

Breaking down the factors, having backups (half my answers had to be from second and third-ranked stories just based on the questions), overall just confidence.Your packet is like gold and I am very glad I worked with you. I will be able to take what I learned about interviewing into the rest of my career as an FBI SPECIAL AGENT. Am I a great storyteller? – still not really but, you helped me be good ENOUGH and CONFIDENT sounding even though I was not as confident in my answers since some of my better ones did not fit the questions.I am forever glad I never have to take Phase II interview again, thanks to you.My Thoughts on why I failed the Phase II —- I realized that these agents had different experiences than me. Not that anyone is better than anyone else because of experience, but that realization made me more confident in myself.When I did Phase 2 for the Bureau, I put the agents on a massive pedestal and assumed they were so much better than me. This was a mistake. I know that played a part in my ability to be authentic and myself, for fear I wasn’t going to be good enough for them …as you know, that was self-sabotaging.
