    Default Just Starting

    Hello,
    I Have an Interview with a Rural Department on Monday June 16th and I am really nervous about it since this is my first interview with a department and I have never had an interview with 4 people. There are four board members going to be there. Do you have any tips or suggestions to calm my nerves and help prepare my self for this interview also any suggestions for during the interview?

    Is this a paid or volunteer


    Best thing to do is get three or four people set down in front of them like a real interview

    Have them ask questions

    Record yourself

    And do it a few times till it comes natural, you give complete sentences, and avoid the ah ah ah



    Some tips

    There's nothing wrong with admitting you're nervous. I just laughed and said "sorry I'm really nervous" they laughed and told me it was ok and it kind of broke the ice. It went well after that and I got the job! Good luck!

    Hello, I am from Bismarck, North Dakota. The position is for a Paid on Call Firefighter. I have never done an interview with four people and I am really nervous. What do most departments ask?
