Any advice for a 33y/o FF looking for a gig!??
Sounds pretty sad I am sure but heres my question for you guys/gals;
As you can read I am 33 and in a few years will be 36- in the state of Indiana many departments only hire under 36 and do not consider you eligible if you are 36 on the date you are instated as firefighter, not necessarily badged up, but hired! I have a DUI on my record that prevents me from working at several departments- the DUI is 3 years old now and I am currently drug and alcohol free (2 years ) not that it makes a difference when looking at applications. What are my chances in getting a job? I am a certified Paramedic Nationally, North Carolina, Indiana, Virginia , certified Fire 1 and 2 IFSAC. I currently am a firefighter in NC but moving to Indiana, the Indianapolis metro area.
Any advice??? Thanks everyone
sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes
