  • If you lost 75 pounds to prepare for a career in LE, should you really mention it?

    Would it be best to be left unsaid?

    On one hand I think it seems like a positive achievement for the "what have you done to prepare" question and definitely shows dedication.

    But on the other it seems like it might create some negative bias. For example, would it create doubt as to whether or not you could pass academy PT? Or perhaps they would anticipate having problems with your physical fitness down the line? In my experience, the LE world doesn't seem to have a lot of forgiveness for the physically unfit.

      If they ask you what you've done to prepare for the position then mentioning it would be approriate, however, it's not going to get you any extra points or cause you to lose any.

      Your oral score is going to based on how many correct answers you gave to the structured test questions they asked you and all the other applicants.
      Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere
