    Default Finally got the badge! Keep on trucking

    Mainly I wanted to tell some of the guys on here to keep trying no matter what. I had been testing for the last 5 years while at my paid on call department. I've made lists, I've placed in the top 10, I've had conditional offers, I've done everything but get the badge ... until now. Got my official offer yesterday for a BUSY city that boarders Detroit and also provide mutual aid to them.

    Apply, apply, apply, Study, practice, interview yourself, read the questions aloud, find something unique about yourself to set yourself apart, and then do it all over again! Because in the end, all that matters is that badge!

    Best job in the world

    Shout out to Captain Bob for his program. It really does help!!!

    Now let's get to work!
