Imagining Hypothetical Scenarios

leave a comment »

The Oral Assessment to become an U.S. diplomat has a section called the Structured Interview in which Department of State assessors ask about your experience and motivation for joining the Foreign Service. They also ask you about how you would act in hypothetical scenarios at an embassy.

The NDA (non-disclosure agreement) prevents applicants from talking about specific examples. However the HD brings you exclusive information: to prepare for potential hypothetical scenarios, imagine the quote from the movie Speed:

Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper): “Pop quiz, hotshot. There’s a bomb on a bus. Once the bus goes 50 miles an hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 50, it blows up. What do you do? What do you do?”

So it’s pretty much like that.
