Default Having Oral board on feb 16. Need some tips.

Hey Calgun LEO's!

My Oral Board is coming soon and I would like some tips. I already know that I need to be suited up, but what questions have you guys been asked? My friend who's passed a few oral board tells me that they are mostly general questions.

Any help is appreciated.

Basically, know a little bit about the dept that you're interviewing for like the name of the sheriff/chief and the mayor, if it's a city. Also answer honestly and truthfully. Don't change your answer if they turn up the heat on you for how you answered a question. If you're not sure about a question, ask for them to repeat it. Mostly sell yourself to them (i.e. How you personally would fit into and benefit their dept). Try not to show any nervousness. And lastly good luck.

You are going to want to have an answer for a diversity question possibly. It will involve how you work with people of different language/culture/background. As an Officer you will run into all type of people and they want to know how you handle those situations. There will also probably be a question on how you have prepared yourself for the job and why you want the job in the first place. Also be mentally prepared for a video scenario at the interview.

I'm assuming you're korean. Don't let the anger show through ... just kidding. Most questions are standard now a days which sucks IMO. Good luck though.
