Rob Christensen and Mike Zolin sent me three copies of “Firefighter Interview Rule Book” – The authoritative guide to the unwritten interview rules. While I am not trying to get hired, I do wish I had this book prior to my recent promotional interview. This year, my department added a new component to the process and I could have done much better on it. Luckily for me, this book will help and I will have it for my studying arsenal for the next process!
I already sent one copy to a Brother in California who is trying to go full-time. I hope it helps!
This is a thorough book detailing everything you need for unwritten interviews. The 110 page paperback includes time-frames, practice, and much more for for the candidate to go through whether you are practicing to get hired or even promoted.
Rob Christensen and Mike Zolin operate Top Score (http://interview911.com). They offer much more than just this book including coaching.
Pros: The authors are professional firefighters with over 40 years of combined experience in the fire service.
I would recommend Firefighter Interview Rule Book to others, and I will give it a 5 out of 5 stars.
