Please Just Shut Up!

For most candidates trying to get them to open up is a challenge. For
some, itís getting them to shut up. They go on and on trying to over
impress the panel, getting too familiar, chatting like their sitting
around the coffee table BSing, droning on with salvo drop answers,
trailing off, dropping in some department gossip, and what they think is
inside information that will get them extra points.

As part of his answer to tell us a little about yourself one candidate
would tell the panel what books he was reading to demonstrate he was a
man of the world and had depth. Since this was his first question of
the interview, he quickly lost the panel with this anal overkill.

These toilet trained too early candidates try to give the panel a blue
print when we just need a sketch. Try to give us a dump truck, when we
just need a trailer. For many of these wonder child beauties can learn
by just kicking their presentation back about 40% will make it just
about right.

I had told a candidate in coaching about his inability to keep his mouth
shut. I guess he didnít believe me so he did a coaching session with
Rob. Rob told him the same thing. He called Rob and me often,
especially after he tested and didnít get hired. Rob and I would pass
him back and forth, with, maybe you should ask Rob about that. We would
refer him back to his coaching tapes. The tapes have the answer to your
problem. Shut up.

This same motor mouth candidate called after he had a chiefís interview
with a department and as he was leaving they handed him a background.
He just knew they wanted him. What he didnít understand was this
department handed out background packets to everyone who went to the
chief oral to speed up the process when they made their decision who to
hire. The next week I saw one of the officers who was on this guys
panel. He told me they couldnít get this guy to shut up. That he would
be a good candidate for a near by department. Obviously they didnít
hire him.

In another oral he dropped in some political stuff about this city
thinking they would be impressed by his research. They werenít.
Another decline.

He went off and became a medic. He still couldnít get hired.

It got so bad that when I picked up the phone and heard his voice I
cringed. I finally told him when he called, youíve got 5 minutes, hit
it. Rob and I kept telling him to go back and review the coaching
tapes.

Well this candidate did get hired by the department down the road after
testing for 5 years. When he called excited to tell me I congratulated
him. Then I told him something because I didnít want to receive the
call when he got fired. I told him unless he didnít keep his mouth shut
they would run him out in short order. Donít try to impress anyone.
They donít care! Just listen to your officer and wait for him or her to
give you what you need to function. Nothing more, or less. He did. He
turned it into a game. It worked. Heís still there.

Remember, absolutely nothing counts 'til you have the badge. Nothing!
