    Unnecessary. They don't need to know this until they offer you a job.

    Objective: Highly motivated volunteer-firefighter (or) applicant looking to start a career in the fire service.
    "Objective" statements come and go out of fashion. I personally never had any use for them. If you feel the need to use an opener; make it a brief summary of your qualifications.

    • LA First Responder
    Spell it out. Avoid abbreviations.

    • Great customer service skills
    • Volunteer Firefighter
    • Experience emergency BLS provider
    Your "qualifications" are already covered elsewhere; phrase these as "Experience."

    Education History:

    "Education and Training;" the only thing on the lst that really qualifies as "Education" is high school.

    • 2168.98 Volunteer Hours
    Fractions to two decimal places? How about 2000+

    • Benton Fire Department: Member: 2 years as of 04/2011
    As of 4 months from now? Just go with "20 months" of 1 1/2 years.

    There are numerous websites devoted to creating a resume out there. Look at several styles and formats and find one that suits your qualifications and aspirations.

    Resume questions

    Yes, i looked using the search button and found many posts, however I have questions regarding my format; is there anything I need to remove or add? I am applying somewhere and I want this to look great. BTW, I am trying to get the heck outta here and leave LaFire in bossier parish. I just want to start a career in firefighting, so please help me if you can be serious.
