Learn from serving ambulancemen on preparing for interview and fitness test
01 | Pre-interview Practice
Self-confidence is essential to every success; so what can you do to boost your confidence? Ambulancewoman Chan Ka Yee advised, “Before attending the interview, I would set up some mock-up questions that the interviewer may ask to make sure I could provide answers fluently.” She also reminded interviewees to keep calm when answering the questions. Smiles and gestures can impress the interviewers. One can practice at home in front of a mirror.
02 | Keep Training
The physical fitness test is generally regarded as the most difficult part of the selection process. Ambulanceman Yip Chun Luen recalled that he used to visit the gym thrice a week to train himself up for specific physical fitness test requirements.
03 | Collection of Information
Ambulancewoman Chan Ka Yee said, “You need to have a certain understanding of the responsibilities of an Ambulanceman to show your passion and dedication for the job. That would help you to have a better chance of getting an offer.” She would visit bookstores, libraries and website of the Fire Service Department for relevant information before the written test. Interviewees should also pay attention to local and international news during their preparation.
