Lucky Joe?

With all this said about becoming a medic, we help candidates get hired all the time with little or no experience.  Introducing Joe: 

Joe got one of our flyers when he picked up an application for the San Francisco Fire Department test.  He had seen the ad for the test in the newspaper.  Although he was not a kid, he thought he would give it a shot.   No background, formal education or experience related to the fire service.

It didn’t take long after Joe contacted us to figure out that he was not the brightest light on the tree.

We suggested a book he could get to help him prepare for the written.  Every time he called me he also called my firefighter son Rob. On one call he left a message asking, if I buy this book, does it have the answers for the San Francisco test in it?  There were many, many calls.  We answered all.

Of the 4100 that took the San Francisco written, guess who was one of the 1700 who passed?  Joe passed the SFFD written.  

The oral was next.  My son Rob dreaded doing the coaching session.  It normally takes about an hour for a coaching session. It was a looooong session. 

Guess who was one of the 609 who passed the San Francisco Oral?  Yep, Joe.

Next was the physical agility.   Joe was in great shape.  He wanted to know how to prepare.  I told him to go to the Physical Agility section of the FREE “101 Inside Secrets to Get a Badge on our web site.  Joe left a message the next day, Captain Bob I can’t find that book you told me about on preparing for the physical.  Another call to Joe that it’s FREE on the web site.

Joe doesn’t know about you.  He doesn’t know about your degrees, certificates, education, and experience.

Even though Joe is not the sharpest knife in the drawer he did something you probably aren’t.  He said, “Captain Bob just tell me what I need to do.”  And, he listened!  He listened to what he needed to do.  Joe followed the simple formula:  Get the program.   Work it.  Use a tape recorder to practice.  Get coaching.  Badge!

Guess who graduated from the 108th fire academy in San Francisco?  That’s right Joe.  He walked right in off the street and took away your badge.

I told this to a medic testing for 4 years in the Denver area last week and he said, “Captain Bob that’s not funny.”  I know it isn’t.  But Joe is now wearing the badge that many aspire to wear.

Luck is given to the prepared.

What are you willing to do to get a badge?  Call Joe and he will tell you.

Absolutely nothing counts 'til you have the badge. Nothing!
