    Default Chicago Fire department exam 2013?

    for the longest time I've been hearing rumors that there will be a Chicago Fire department exam in 2013....then I read an article by the mayor stating that there WILL BE a test sometime in 2013 but I haven't heard anything yet....just wondering if any of you guys have heard anything? Any help from you guys will be greatly appreciated!

    I can just about assure you there will be no new exam this year. Next year maybe but there won't be one in 2013. If there was it would be known already. With this city you never know for sure about anything but I'd bet just about anything against it. Next year would be much more likely if they are in fact planning another exam.

    For a while now I have been hearing the same thing so a couple of weeks ago I called and talked to some lady at Chicago HR. She said that she couldnt say for sure when the application process would be opening back up but to expect it sometime early 2014. Also, you can sign up for a job interest card and when it opens up youll get an email telling you about it. Thats what I did.

    I think you go to city hall in front of the daily plaza in downtown chicago if im not mistaken. I might go some time soon since I never watch TV, read the newspaper or stay up to date with news. I think they were or already did testing for CPD. Cant remember.

    So there is no way to do it online? Reason I ask is because I live out of state.

    Check the city's HR page online. You can usually sign up after clicking on the specific job description. Haven't done this though (for Chicago), so can't say for sure.
