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.
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.
