Is there any hope in CA, or anywhere?
I have applied been looking forward to many tests in California only to find that they have been cancelled, Orange County, LAFD, most likely LACoFD, it's very depressing. On top of that it seems as if every hiring process throughout the country is on hold. I live in CA and would like to stay within at least 3 states of CA due to family living here. It just seems like nobody is hiring... Either that or they are ONLY hiring medics. I have my FF1 Certififcate, EMT-1, and am currently taking Fire Science classes at Bakersfield College... It just seems like there is no hope for anywhere to be hiring. I know eventually I'll get the job, I guess the economy is kind of putting everything on hold it seems. What do you more experienced FF's and Captains, etc, think?
