    Default How to get my foot in the door

    Anyone got any advice on how I can get picked up for career firefighting job? I have no experience, nor do I have many people in my immediate family or group of friends that can help me through the process.

    Depending where you live you mite need EMT-B or ALS certifications before they will even consider you. But if you live in New Jersey like myself, civil service fire departments in the state do not require anything but a GED or HS Diploma, the process in Jersey is:

    1) Apply
    2) Take the written test
    3) Take the physical test
    4) Get ranked on a list
    5) Get hired if you're low enough on the list

    Where do you live? Search google for some major cities near you're town and their residency req.

    Best way to look for available jobs is to either look at the job postings on the official city/county government website where you want to work, or subscribe to a site like firecareers.com which has a database of current openings.
