Program Series SES Boot Camp

SES Boot Camp

Join other aspiring SES members in this intensive, three-day program intended to prepare you for SES selection through simulations that nearly mirror the selection process.

[The February 12-14, 2013 session of the SES Boot Camp has been postponed. New course dates will be listed soon. If you have any questions please contact Alexis Roehrich, registrar@brookings.edu or 800.925.5730.]

Led by former chief human capital officers, retired members of the SES, executive recruiters, and management consultants, you will be instructed in how best to present your candidacy in writing and experience the review process through a mock-behavioral event interview. Through an interactive simulation you will also understand which OPM competencies are among your strengths and which need further development.

This class is not titled “boot camp” lightly. You will emerge feeling fully capable of presenting your best self before an Executive Review Board. For departments and agencies facing a flood of retirements, this is an essential class to prepare your aspiring executives for the SES review process.
