I don't see many jobs being posted lately.
    You applied for firefighter up through fire chief?

    Default still waiting...

    Well, despite being qualified and after applying to various companies for the last 8 months, I'm still waiting on an overseas opportunity.... A friend of mine got picked up by KBR to go to Iraq as a medic and is to report to Houston August 7th, but I'm still waiting..... I keep seeing job openings for various companies and applied to every single one that I'm qualified for, not sure why I haven't been tapped yet.... Anyone have any ideas? I've been a firefighter for 9 years now, have my LPN/ACLS/EMT-B so not really sure why not...

    Where are you doing the d/o? Don't go to LSU-FETI! Worst experience I ever had... So unprofessional. I was looking into the online program for $200

    Default D/o

    No, I did the D/O here in Indiana, did most of my stuff here. I did the FEMa NIMS ICS 100 and 200 online for free, and the ARFF in KY at Lexington's airport. That cost me $800 for the class, but was fun.

    Default overseas firefighting jobs

    Well, am done with the D/O class, just waiting on the cert to come in the mail.... Still waiting on an overseas job, you'd think that someone with all the qualifications, a passport book in hand, and ready to leave asap would be able to get a spot...but here I sit lol. WSI did ask me if I wanted to go to DC for some officer job (since I do have law enforcement experience) but it was only a temp job for a couple of months....can't give up my apartment, job, etc for a temp job that only paid 4 more dollars per hour than what I make now lol I just wonder if the overseas companies are being told to wait on hiring new people cause of everything going on in the government right now... a friend of mine has already been hired by KBR to go to Iraq as a medic, and was supposed to leave last sunday, but is on hold indefinitely....who knows
