    Default Austin, Texas Exam Update

    Below is an e-mail we received today.

    Hello and thank you for your interest in the Austin Fire Department. We
    are currently developing new tools to communicate with potential
    applicants for the position of Fire Cadet. One new feature will allow
    potential applicants to enter contact information and receive automatic
    updates on the Fire Cadet Employment process. A link to this feature
    will be available on the recruiting website as well as the employment
    processing website.

    We anticipate conducting a Fire Cadet Employment process later this year
    and hope to begin Cadet training in 2011. The collective bargaining
    agreement between the City of Austin and the Austin Firefighters
    Association includes development of a new employment process for entry
    level firefighters (Fire Cadets) and for the first time, we will be able
    to hire lateral firefighters.

    Specific information on the qualifications, application process and
    employment selection components for both traditional and lateral hires
    will be posted on our websites when available.

    Please continue to visit our websites and take advantage of the new
    communication tools as they become available.
