15 Toughest Interview Questions (and Answers)

FireLink | Kendra Weikman, Associate Editor

1. Why do you want to work in this industry?


Bad answer:
“I like firefighting. I think it’s really cool.”

Don’t just say you like it. Anyone can "like" firefighting. Focus instead on your history with the industry, and if you can, tell a story.

Good answer:
“I have always appreciated and admired those who put their lives on the line to protect our comminutues. My interest really piqued in firefighting however after I witnessed a post-crash rescue. I heard the calling as I watched the first response team pull the civilians to safety and out of harms way. It was then I knew that this is what I was meant to do.”
