    Default Resume Advice!

    For more background of what my situation is please refer to this thread.
    http://forums.firehouse.com/showthread.php?t=100084

    Im about to start my terminal leave here in a few weeks and I really wanna get the ball rolling with this WSI Employment!

    Recieved my passport in the mail, I have all my other essential documents for employment.Luckily I finished the DoD HAZMAT technician course last week!
    A cert Im glad to aquire before I separate!

    Now its resume time I have done lots of searching and asking for advice from co workers. A fellow DoD Station Captain of mine showed me his resume and its a 4 page biography.

    I need to know what WSI employers/Fire Chiefs look for/prefer when it comes to these resumes? Cut short and to the point or 4 page bio?Cover page?

    let's see a resume for this company... pulse rate and solid knees should be thrown in there. no really, PM me with your email and i'll reply with what i used. air force is all pretty much the same. just different bases.
    A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.

    I'd include "Have pulse, will travel" in there somewhere.

    Also, if you had a lobotomy while in the military, include that part of your medical record and you'll be a step closer to making lieutenant.
