To Take the Job or Not!

2022-06-13T19:22:09+00:00

To Take the Job or Not! A few years ago, one of our candidates, Gavin, was going to a chief’s oral for a training position. Several older and in-service firefighters were offering Gavin their advice. They were saying that he should not be doing this. They said it could limit his chances of being hired by another department where he was on the list. Gavin was focused on what "they" said. Gavin decided to play hard to get in the Chief’s Oral. My take on this advice is that after you have been a firefighter for a while, you forget [...]

Multiple Job Offers Email from Jimmy who has received 2 offers: Dear Captain Bob - After getting your program, I got offered a job. Today, another job offer came. It's unreal.

Getting that Phone Call

Getting that Phone Call Here is what Josh wrote: “Today, I'm writing with a sigh of relief. I have been offered a position with a department in Oregon. I start on January 3rd. I want to thank everyone for the help and encouragement down the long path. I want to say a special thank you to Fire Captain Bob. Without his words of wisdom, I don't think I would be writing this letter. He took me under his wing and guided me through the dark waters of the testing process. To give you an example of Captain Bob’s dedication, he [...]

The Hiring Process

2020-10-29T16:59:44+00:00

The Hiring Process When the scores start coming, I start getting phone calls. I am referring to a testing cycle in LA. Many of our candidates nailed the top three slots to go on in the process. For many, this is their first time in the "Hiring Process". And, after we congratulate our candidates, we tell them to BUCKLE UP! They have already heard the rumors. Often, they are freaked out. As with many tests, there is probably going to be a chief’s oral. They think they have to reinvent themselves to get ready. Here’s my advice to these folks: [...]

Are You Fire Academy Ready?

2020-10-27T16:54:21+00:00

Are You Fire Academy Ready? Just because you passed the physical agility does not mean you are ready for the fire academy. Whether you agree or not, the physical agility has been watered down to be politically correct. Departments know this. So, the training division will have you jumping through hoops to make sure you can do the job before you go “on line”. And, this is exactly how it should be. Start getting physically ready before you show up at the academy. Be in shape and hit the ground running. It’s tough enough getting a job. Keeping it can [...]
