    Default Hired

    I worked to get hired for 5 years and just wanted to let you all know I have been received a final offer. Start date will be May 1st. To those of you out there still testing and pushing through here is a little about my story: I have taken this past year off from testing and started a business. I was working and received an email from HR to see if if like to come in for an interview. This was the first department I ever interviewed for 3 1/2 years ago and I jumped at the opportunity. It had been a very fast process since all of this happened 2 weeks ago. So never give up on your dream. Thank you to all of you out there who helped along the way. I bought Captain Bobs gold package when I started to interview and I even talked with him on the phone a few times. This was invaluable. I also never talked about fire experience in my interview it was about showing them who I was as a person and when they called they said I by far was the obvious choice. Be real in your interview and tell your story like Capt. Bob says and it will pay off

    Good luck to you man. I myself am still waiting on that golden letter in the mail. I've had my interview with the captain and chief for my city back in October 2013. I was as real as I could be and I believe I got to them at an emotional level. They even said it was one of the best interviews they've had in a long time. I took my written back in 2010 so there has been a lot of waiting haha but I definitely won't give up hope. Again I say best of luck to you.
