3 Interview Tips – How To Stand Out During the Fire Service Interview

tips for firefighter interview


Hey there, Brent C for firerecruitmentaustralia.com and today I’m going to show you how to stand out in the Fire Service interview process and what it is you need to focus on in order to make sure that the best version of you comes across and is competitive for that interview process. With Fire Services being so competitive and the interview being the single biggest exposure you will give to the recruitment team, it stands out to me that you’d want to make sure that you put the best version of yourself forward to the team in that small window of opportunity that you’ve got.

The first thing that you need to do is have an understanding of what it is you’re going to be expected to respond to within the interview on the day, so that you don’t get caught out and that you’re sitting there searching for responses to answers that you’re just not aware of. We want to be prepared and have an understanding of what it is they’re going to ask us on the day. Once you’ve got an understanding of what it is that they’re going to ask you on the day, we need to have a look into our past and our current situation and have a look at our best examples so that we can have them front of mind and convey that to the interview panel.

The last thing I want to cover here for you is that you want to have a structure to put your answers into so that you don’t miss out on any important information that you want to convey to the panel. Just to cap off, you want to have an understanding of what it is they’re going to ask you on the day. You want to have some good examples front of mind so that you can deliver your actual best stuff to the panel on the day and the third thing is that you want to have a structure to put your answers into so that you can deliver them without missing anything out. An awareness of what they’re going to ask you, some of your own examples front of mind and a structure to put them into.

I’ve got a question for you out of those three things that I’ve just covered. Which one of those would be most helpful to you when it comes to the Fire Service interview? If you can leave us a comment below and we’ll continue the conversation down there. I’m Brent C. This is firerecruitmentaustralia.com. Thanks for watching. I’ll see you on the next video.

I've been in the fire service working since 2007 to learn everything about how Fire Services Recruitment works. I've tested and refined proven methods to help people get the edge over the competition. Today, over 300 of my former students are living their Firefighter dream.
