    Promotional Preparation

    Everything you will do in the promotional process has to do with presentation skills.

    The following are possible questions you might encounter in your promotional process:

    What have you done to prepare for or what do you think qualifies you for the position?

    What is your five your plan?

    What are three of your strengths? What is one of your weaknesses?

    What projects can you attach your name to?

    How do you resolve conflict?

    How do you reduce stress?

    How would you handle a disgruntled employee?

    What is the job of an officer?

    Be prepared for scenarios related to ethical issues; drinking, drugs, stealing, etc.

    How would you handle a sexual or racial harassment situation?

    Why would we choose you over the other candidates?

    Can you deliver a 5-10 oral resume?

    Are you up on those issues that are affecting your agency?

    Practice handwriting reports.

    Work on your personal signature stories than can relate to possible questions.

    What does customer service mean to you?

    What does cultural diversity mean to you?

    Can you take a topic on short notice, develop and deliver a 10-minute speech?

    How do you administer discipline?

    Do you have a current one-page resume? Make sure to include any acting time.

    Practice, practice, practice your answers with a hand-held voice recorder that goes everywhere your car keys go!

    Donít go on a journey with your answers. Be concise but brief.

    Good luck
