Firefighter and EMT Interview

A common problem I see with candidates preparing their presentation for an interview is they don't focus on their real strengths. They attempt to represent themselves as what they think the board would want instead of their real strengths of leadership, training, hazmat, confined space rescue, etc.

Here is one such example. A candidate faxed me his proposed script for his presentation. Buried in the third page was his true strength . . . Training! He had a long history of training. Once training was moved to his opening and main theme, he was operating from his strength.

In his second interview, a panel member from training asked him what part training would play as an officer. Paul asked to use the white board to demonstrate. It was show time! It was Paul's true love and strength. He was in his element up at the board asking more questions and demonstrating he was an experienced trainer. The training chief beamed. Paul's confidence exploded. How could they not consider him for the position? He blew the doors off his oral board panel.
