Department & Community Member Oral Board Examination
The Oral Board Examination is designed to measure a candidate's ability in several different areas: verbal comprehension, verbal expression, reasoning, fluency of ideas, and originality. The interview may also explore candidates' communication skills, life experiences, and their personal core values to determine overall fit of the candidate for the organization. A member of the community will be part of the interview panel alongside MFD personnel.
