    Your profile says you are sworn, but this is your first oral interview?

    If your profile is not accurate.....

    Think before you speak. Be confident and answer the questions honestly. Look the board members in the eye when you speak to them. Know about the agency you are applying for.

        There is no predicting what you will be asked, however, this is what most orals focus on. Think about these areas and be prepared to discuss -

        • Experience – assesses your ability and experience in accepting responsibilities and performing assigned tasks as demonstrated through achievements in work, school, and other activities.

        • Problem Solving – assesses your reasoning skills in developing timely, logical responses to a wide variety of situations and problems.

        • Communication Skills – assesses your oral communications skills, which includes speaking, listening, and non-verbal communication.

        • Interest/Motivation – addresses your interest in and preparedness for the peace officer job. It includes an assessment of your general level of interest, initiative, and goal orientation.

        • Interpersonal Skills – assesses many facets, such as social knowledge/appropriateness, social insight, empathy, social influence, social self-regulation, sociability, team orientation, social self-confidence, conflict management skills, and negotiating skills.

        • Community Involvement/Awareness – focuses specifically on your experiences and interest in community issues, as well as your interest in and ability to fill multiple roles and serve a diverse community.

              Somebody with YOUR password had to mark it that way. I wonder who that could have been? Do you suppose it could have been the o.com pixies? The oral board may ask.

                  No, it was bullsh*t check.

                  You indicated you didn't notice your profile listed you as a sworn officer. But the only person who can make your profile say you are a sworn officer is someone with your password. Who has your password other than you?

                      Also says you are employed in the law enforcement industry. Is that true, or did you not notice that too?
