FireLink


It’s time for the reality check. America is in a recession and jobs are fewer while competition is greater. It takes even more hustle, dedication, and tenacity to land a job today than it did for your parents. Having a degree isn’t always enough and, sorry to break it to you, but you aren’t likely to get your dream job right out of college. While that may be disappointing, it also allows you to clarify your expectation and set realistic goals. We have come up with the five things you’ll need to give up – or compromises you’ll have to make – to land your first fire-rescue job. If you follow our advice and keep on building your professional credentials you’ll be able to more effectively network, interview, and become the first responder that you want to be.
