How Will LoTrain Consulting Prepare You?

Your assigned consultant  will start with a brief informational interview where we ask you about the job you are seeking and what you feel your deficiencies are. We then will complete a diagnostic mock interview with you. It’ll help us calibrate your current interview performance. From there, we’ll offer an assessment of how you’re currently performing.  We will explain what’s working, what’s not, and how to improve it. Then, much like a physical therapist, the consultant will start working with you on a variety of exercises to develop your personal brand and interview responses, tailored to you.

At the end of the first session, the consultant may  email you notes, summarizing areas of improvement and exercises they’d like you to complete before the next session.

Live Oral  Practice Interview & Feedback !!!!!

Over the years, law enforcement candidates have told us that the Applicant Oral Interview Board is clearly the most stressful part of the entire application process.

Successful job interviewing is a skill that can be learned and developed. Law enforcement recruits often interview many times with many agencies before achieving "passing" marks.

Jeffrey and Lynette  offer you the opportunity to participate in a live,  "Oral Interview" (practice session), complete with (1) immediate feedback from the  panel/interviewers and (2) suggestions for improvement.

Our career transition services will help uncover who you are and what drives you, identify careers that are right for you and create a plan to make that career change a reality!
