Who Are you Sending to the Oral Board?

I can’t think of any greater disappointment, than to spend lots of time, money, and effort to get your oral board presentation memorized, only to find out you sound just like the person that came out of the interview ahead of you.

For an interviewer there is nothing worse than sitting in a room and listening to person after person come in, sit down, and say the same thing the person before them said.

I think the worst would have to be in areas where all of the hopeful firefighter candidates went to the same academy, volunteered in the same department, and prepare together.

The person who has gotten the most publicity from this latest round of “The American Idol” show isn’t the best singer, heck, I don’t know if you could even call it singing. But what this funny looking, no-talent person did was he got up in front of the whole world and was himself. He could have spent his whole life trying to sound like someone else, and no one would have cared. It was him being himself that made him popular, made him stand out.

In an oral exam there are some questions that have only one correct answer. Two plus two is always four. “How many stations do we have?” can only be answered right or wrong. We have check off boxes right there on our ratings sheet.

But questions like: “Why do you want to be a firefighter?”, “What is customer service?”, What is ethnic diversity?”, “What is a weakness for you?” There are probably 10,000 correct answers that would get you maximum points. This is where you can separate yourself from the others, be your own man, so to speak.

Be leery of someone that says they have all the right answers, and they’ll give them to you. Because, they may have given all the other candidates the same right answers and are going to get the same exact score they got. 200 people tied for 20th place.

Bring yourself to your next interview. Not someone else’s answers, you’ll be glad you did

CAPTAIN ROB (Thank you)
