PHASE II – FBI Interview
KUDOS – KUDOS – KUDOS — PASSED – PASSED – PASSED
WOMEN RULE THIS MONTH
Out of the 4 people that I know that applied and made it to this phase I was the only one who passed to the next. Thank you so much for working with me. I used most of my stories, there was only one question that I couldn’t figure out what factor they were looking for so I morphed the story a bit and actually ended up combining two factors. It was such a great experience. At the beginning of our session, you told me that you weren’t sure how the feel of the interview would go and you suspect that the person can encourage a different atmosphere. I completely agree with this. The other two applicants from Oklahoma said they were nervous and that the interviewers were very cold – no smiles, no eye contact, nothing.
I went in and the first thing I did was made a casual joke about the hotel room we were interviewing in. I received immediate smiles and they talked to me like I was a colleague. Relaxing at the beginning of the interview set the cadence for the rest of the interview. I even had some time to ask them questions at the end of the interview such as where they were from, if there were as nervous as I was and the most rewarding thing about their positions.
I think my strongest part was my “why” section. They were extremely engaging with me between taking notes. I got some head nods and even a solid smile.
Again, thank you for your help. I don’t think I would have passed if I wasn’t as prepared as I was.
Listening to the audio of our sessions, incorporating your feedback into my stories, and rehearsing my stories were vital to my success. Your framework of listening to the question, identifying the factor, and morphing a story worked flawlessly. I learned how to open up and show “Kelly Ann” to the three agents a week ago.
Once again, thank you so much for your guidance and support. I highly recommend your coaching services and enjoyed your book, too.
PURCHASED – SELF-PREP
So very happy. Thank you for your guidance. Preparation of stories is the key. Luckily I had a whole bank of them to pull from. Can’t stress enough how important it was to be yourself and be personable with the agents as well.
(INCLUDED ONE STORY CRITIQUE AND A BRIEF CHAT WITH ME)
I would like to inform you that I PASSED!!!
I couldn’t have done it without you! Your help in prepping me, explaining to me the process, and telling me to be myself was crucial in being prepared and confident! But you didn’t just tell me! You were able to remind me who I am and what I should tell them!
I made them laugh multiple times and they smiled and wrote down when I corrected myself when I said girls instead of women. They seemed pleased.
Anyway, thank you again! I would recommend you to other candidates in a heartbeat!
I PASSED!!! The interview went really well. I kinda fudged my five points but eventually got everything out that I needed to. And then the question responses just came so naturally. I morphed some and some I had the perfect stories for (I think writing about 30 of them helped!). I topped it off with a variation of the moose story and I think that was icing on the cake. I just kept thinking “chill the eff out and be yourself”. And when I left the room, I thought, “I nailed that”. Anyway, I could not have done it without you and your guidance!! Thank you thank you!!! Second time’s the charm for sure 🙂
I just wanted to inform you that I passed my interview! I was very nervous but happy that I passed on my first try!
Thank you so much for all your help. It was very, very helpful! I learned so much from you and will use those tips for the future.
I will most certainly recommend you to anyone applying to the FBI. Only I would recommend they don’t wait a few days before the interview date to get started =)
