Thread: Firefighter Resume
03-09-2009, 10:55 AM #1
I am just on my tail end of a contract as a firefighter in Iraq. I plan on applying to several departments back home when I return and am looking to get things in order prior to getting home. I have an AAS degree in fire science and am only a few credits away from my BS in management. I have military and voluntary FD experience blah blah blahÖ.
My current resume is overloaded and needs work (Iím always finding typos). I want to keep it to 1 page and maybe include a cover letter. I donít know why the departments in my area even want a resume with the application, but they do and I want to give them the best I can.
I donít mind paying a little for a professional one page resume that takes all my crap and puts it together so I look like the superstar I am (just kidding).
I looked at example resumes on this site and through caption b*bís page and am not impressed. They look so basic and like they have been put together in a hurry. I have the education and experience, I just need to express and convey it accordingly.
If anyone can point me in the right direction to a resume writing service that will be able to help me, I would appreciate it.
Feel free to e-mail me if you would like.My viewpoints and ideas are exclusively my own. Although I may express opinions and comments pertaining to the fire service, they are in no way representative of my employer.

Got my resume back from the writer.
Ended up having a resume writer write my resume. The company I went with was www.fdresume.com 602-539-8942 and they did a really good job and it cost less then the other writers out there.
I would not plug the company if I was not impressed with the work.
Now on to the interview!!!!!My viewpoints and ideas are exclusively my own. Although I may express opinions and comments pertaining to the fire service, they are in no way representative of my employer.
