  • Finally the Time has Come

    After numerous test, and more than enough let downs, today I received notice that I have been chosen as a fire recruit for the my dream department in the City of Atlanta. I appreciate all of the help that the members of this forum have given. Without this forum I don't believe that I would have gotten the information that I believe set me apart in my interview and this recruitment process. To the next young man or woman who ventures here in search for advice in their process, never give up, continue to apply and continue to make yourself a better potential recruit by taking each loss and learning from it in order to make the next test your best!

              Post's like this are great to see! It's easy to get down on yourself when you don't get offered a job, yet think you tested great. These stories help let everyone know there is hope and to keep working!

                          Is everything else in order? Credit? Background? Medically fit?

                          If so then you need to concentrate on why you're not making it past the interviews. EMT, FF2, volunteer (FF?). Most everyone has that. What makes you unique in the process? Your story and experience. Relate that. There are a few on here who can help you mold your story into your story! Good luck!

                          OP:
                          Congrats and Good luck! It's all worth it!

                            Credit is perfect, never been in trouble, and I'm in good shape.

                            I've learned a lot already just reading posts about how to prepare for the interviews. I didn't stand out in the interview and that's where i think i fell short, didn't use experiences. I knew the answers but probably sounded robotic and nervous.

                            I won't give up that's for sure..

                              Congratulations on your success!. The previous posted hit the nail right on the head; It all boils down to the interview. SPending time in the gym is very important, however, it's all about being able to perform when you are sitting in front of my peers.....
