FSOT Coaching?

To FSOT Applicants,

I’d like to know how many of you would be interested in coaching?  I was thinking about offering six lessons — one per week — in the month in half before the next Foreign Service Exam.  We’d connect by telephone or by Skype.  I’d recommend books and go over concepts that you’re unsure about, provide time management skills, and give you writing topics and one-on-one reviews of your work.

This is something brand new, and I’m curious if anyone would be interested.

Please let me know.

Best regards,


Bill Fitzgerald





  1. Yes absolutely, send me details, cost and so forth

    I’m very interested in getting coaching on the writing portion

    • Terri–

      Sorry, I’m not offering coaching at the moment. I’m shooting for a free webinar in early January. Sorry this is so late and I realize that you’ve probably already taken the exam. If you passed the written portion, think about tuning in. The webinar will touch on the first FSOT for the folks taking it in February, but I will devote time to the PNQs, oral assessment, choosing your cone, the effects of the President-elect and nominated SecState Tillerson, and so on.

      Good luck,


      • Hi Bill,
        I am interested in your webinar specially on the topic regarding OA. I have an upcoming OA scheduled. Could you provide more details on how/to tune in? Thank you.

  3. Good day:
    Are you still considering this? If so, can you send me the details?

  4. Can you email me cost and details?
    Thank you.

  5. Hey Bill,
    sure, I’d like to take the test in January.
    Can you give me some more information about your program?

  6. Can you please email me the details and cost?

  11. Hi Bill,

    Have you started a coaching session? I’m interested. Is it too late to join in? If so, when do you plan to have a next coaching session? Many thanks!

  12. Hi Bill,

    Thank you! I just watched your great FSOT YouTube videos. I can submit my FSOT eligibility verification form starting on April 25th.

    Warm regards,

      Glad you found them. I’ll be posting some new screencasts soon. Do you have any suggestions?

      Meantime, I’m getting my act together (slowly) and will likely offer coaching for the June test. Stay tuned for details. I’ll post it on my website, YouTube, and my Twitter — @ForeignServiceE.
