When you purchase the Deluxe Package you will receive a link to download the following:
One of the things that I do (that I have had very positive feedback on) is to summarize your "tell me about yourself" into five points (your education/years of experience/special training, your area of expertise, your strengths, your work ethic, your personal side). I write these points and send them to you so that you will be prepared to tell your interviewers what you can bring to the position.
I use five points - hoping that you have 5 fingers - to keep you focused. In the event that you go "blank" when you walk into that interview room you can grab onto those five fingers and remember your five points. Many have told me that very thing happened to them - they went blank - kind of like a "deer caught in headlights."
In the Premier package – we have two sessions.
The first session is 120 minutes and it is full of information. The second session is 60 minutes.
We will practice your answers in our phone coaching sessions. I record your answers and "torture" you by having you listen to yourself and what you are doing right and what needs to be improved.
My style is very straightforward - I do not hesitate to tell you what you need to work on.
After the session you will be sent a link to download an audio recording that you can listen to so you will not have to take notes.
The emphasis of the FBI interview is on Behavioral Questions - other agencies are now using the FBI method to interview candidates - DEA, AIR MARSHALS - other agencies use half situational and half behavioral.
I teach you techniques to answer the "behavioral questions" with a complete story. This is a technique that is very important in this particular interview. In fact, the way you tell your "stories" is the key to passing this interview. By the time we have completed our work together you WILL be able to tell a good story. I'm really tough on this point.
I also help you with the situational questions -there are fewer of this type of question. These questions would be scenarios such as..."What would you do if...? (The FBI has stopped using "situational questions" ) - but other agencies still use them - some almost exclusively.) Although there is no way to know the exact questions that they will ask - I have put together a template that will help you "think" through these scenarios.
I have a quiz that we do in the last 20 minutes or so of our work together - this will prepare you to analyze what the agents who are interviewing you are looking for in the answers - what factor applies to what question.
I welcome questions and will brainstorm with you when you are "stuck" on an example or a story. Having worked with so many law enforcement candidates, I have a great deal of information to pull from.
Please send your stories no more than two per email. You may send as many emails as you would like. This assists me in moving through all of them quickly and you get quicker feedback from me. I personally give very straightforward feedback on your stories. This is a service that many people have said made the difference in being prepared or not.
