It's Your Turn in the Hot Seat!

Here's how the “It’s Your Turn in the Hot Seat” CD program was created.  During two live seminars the candidates volunteered to sit in the "hot seat" not knowing in advance what the next oral board question would be.  Everyone quickly learned what they thought was prepared and unique fell short of getting top scores, especially those candidates who volunteered to give it their best shot. You won't believe what these, I thought I was ready, candidates said! This also applied to many in the packed room who gave their .02 cents as the questions were opened up to the attendees.

It proves that still many haven’t learned how to take a firefighter interview, which will be the deciding factor in whether you will gain a badge, or not.  It verifies this recent e-mail:

First I want to thank you for the information and tools that you have supplied me with in your Gold Package Program http://www.eatstress.com/goldpackage.htm  It worked I scored a 90 and have a background scheduled with LA City.

As you have said before oral board is the most important step in the process and the step that is least prepared for. Well I can support your statement. As I watched the recording of my score (reading upside down) I noticed 60's and 70's on the scores of those that interviewed before me. I would assume there were about 25 names on the sheet prior to mine. Again the methods you teach do work. Thanks again for your help Rich

You’ve spent time, money and put your life on hold to gain the necessary education and experience to become a firefighter. Your oral board will determine the future. It’s game day. You have around 20 minutes to stun the oral board into giving you the opportunity to ride big red. Are you ready to sit in the hot seat and see what you’ve got?

Although entirely new, "It's Your Turn in the Hot Seat" is a 3-hour, two CD's series that will be a companion to our Gold Package Program. In this live seminar CD series with Captain Bob, you can gain the time-tested strategies of oral boards you might be missing. In a no-nonsense, straight-from-the-hip in a total of almost 3 hours! --you will gain more information and insights than most candidates learn in an entire lifetime.

Keep in mind too that in a 20-minute interview you will have about 5-6 questions and answers. One candidate who arrived late at the seminar leaped at the opportunity for the next question.  Once he was in the hot seat he was asked the question, “What do you know about our department?”  

The candidate proceeded to give this fast, rapid fire, long endless answer.  It was like he was trying to cram everything in he could think of down to fine details. Just when you though he was coming in for a landing, he touched down and took flight again.  You could see the glaze coming over those in the room (as you would see from an oral board panel) as he continued.  

When he finally ended the first comment from the room was, wasn’t that answer too long?  The attendees saw first hand how these long endless salvo drop answers can start to work against you to the point of overkill, making you sound anal.  Oh, yea this is the guy we want to stick in a station and drive everyone else crazy.

One candidate said he had been told by many other candidates and firefighters to keep answering until they stop you.  Well, put your self in the position of a panel member and you have to stop this guy to get him to shut up. How would you rate them?

If you go endless in your answers, you might get cut off before you got to deliver some of the best stuff.

Goes along with what a BC with a large agency that had not been on entry-level interviews for a while said.  In one word “Boring”.  Few stellar characters. We need to set a time limit.  Even though there was a 20-minute allotted time, HR would not let the panels cut any one that wanted to go longer.  He said, how can a 22-year old talk for 40 minutes on endless stuff they have seen and done? Make the point and end your answer please. It’s day 12 and we’re tired.   

Wouldn’t you like to find out how ready you are? 

Here are some of the comments from the “It’s Your Turn in the Hot Seat” seminars:

There were so many critical points that I was not aware of.  Pat

The interactive format getting information from many people was amazing.  Jim

The grilling of everybody was a great learning experience.  Nathan

I could have listened to this engaging format for hours.  Steve

Here’s what other’s have said after listening to the new CD’s:

Capt. Bob,The new CD’s are great. Even my roommate is interested in listening. The "In the hot seat" is excellent as you get to hear why it is so vital to record and practice before going to an interview. I so very appreciate it. I will keep you posted as to my progress. Again thanks for all that you do and have done.

Tim Morgan, Fallujah Fire and Rescue, USMC Camp,  Fallujah, Iraq  

Capt: The CD’s were incredible. I don’t know how you do it. Michael

The information from this CD series could be the tilting point that could turn things around in your oral boards. This is a great learn while you drive, help keep you motivated CD program.  There is nothing available on the market like this CD series.

The program comes with a no questions asked full refund if you're not satisfied. You're at no risk except you might get a badge.
