Now more than ever, the global intelligence workforce must seamlessly combine their talents to protect the nation. The FBI continues to evolve into a threat-based, intelligence-driven organization that has expertise in identifying risks to our national security and an unrivaled ability to mitigate them.
At the FBI, we work diligently to play our part in the global intelligence community.
We execute our intelligence strategy via defined Intelligence Analyst (IA) career paths, rigorous selection processes and comprehensive training programs. FBI IAs are on the frontline of protecting America’s national security.
I have to say I think the biggest component to my success was the way you helped me build confidence and feel secure in my answers. Practicing with you was immensely helpful.
I think as a younger applicant with less experience, the ability to remain collected and on task gave me a great advantage. I think this training will help me for any kind of interview I have in the future.
(So thanks again)
I wanted to let you know that I got my Phase III interview results yesterday via email — I passed! Thank you so much for your assistance.
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides leadership on food, agriculture, natural resources, rural development, nutrition, and related issues based on sound public policy, the best available science, and efficient management.
Earlier in the spring I applied for an auditor job with the USDA, I had a phone interview with them and all the coaching advice and training that you provided proved to be incredibly valuable. I ended up getting a job offer from them and started working a couple months ago.
So, I just wanted to let you know that your coaching is great for the FBI interview, but also has a lot of value for other kinds of federal interviews.
PEOPLE – “JUST PEOPLE”
SPECIALLY TRAINED PEOPLE – BUT,
“JUST PEOPLE” – WILL BE INTERVIEWING YOU!
In my first time interviewing with “Agents,” I put them on a massive pedestal and assumed they were so much better than me.
This was a mistake!
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.
I know that played a part in my first interview. I lacked the 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.
ABOUT FACIAL HAIR
I was maybe 1 of only 2 applicants with a beard. And also, I was 1 of only 2 applicants with a grey suit. Everyone else was clean shaven and wearing dark blue…I only say this because I was so worried about my facial hair being an issue or just “looking too different.”
It didn’t matter at all. I was groomed well enough, so the rest was presentation!
LAST MINUTE COACHING
We only had Saturday and Sunday to prepare her for the interview. Her interview was on MONDAY!
Welp, it over! Answered every question. Got more than a few laughs and I definitely feel they got a good picture of who I am.
I used a majority of my stories but I also used experiences that naturally came to mind.
I have a good feeling about this, Carole! I’ll keep you update.
I passed, Carole!!! Just got word.
MORE PASSING THIS WEEK
I wanted to let you know that I passed the phase 2 interview! After working with you, I felt extremely confident walking into it and felt prepared to answer all their questions.
Thanks again for your help!
