Luck is Given to the Prepared!

Don’t miss the early Christmas present below!

This from Captain Rob:

 In the weeks before Christmas there are two types of people, those who are happy and enjoying the season, and those of us that want to hurt the happy ones. The difference is the first group prepared, their shopping done, cards written they relaxed and enjoyed themselves. Meanwhile the second group is trying to find that last minute gift before their car was done filling up at the pump and they have to pay.

I was outside a building where oral interviews where taking place.  I saw a guy sitting in his car writing like mad on a piece of binder paper. Another guy walking by looked in the car and acted like he was thinking if maybe he had written some stuff down he might not feel like throwing up right then. These guys have never shopped early for Christmas.

Right after Christmas, you are probably saying, as most of us do, I will have all my Christmas shopping done by October next year. That same attitude should apply to your preparation for your oral interview.

Please allow me to get on my soapbox for a moment. If you have put in an app., taken the written, or physical ability, you have an oral coming up...If you are in a fire academy, working as a volunteer, in high school, or are twelve years old and are going to be a firefighter some day YOU HAVE AN ORAL INTERVIEW IN YOUR FUTURE; YOU JUST DON’T KNOW THE DATE YET.

The choice is up to you.  How do you think you can present yourself in the best light? If you have spent weeks or even months preparing or you are sitting in your car an hour before the interview still trying to figure out what you have done to prepare and hoping it looks something like what you put on you application.

My suggestion is you kill two birds with one stone. Prepare for your interview like you know you should, and next year you can give everyone a picture of you with your new badge for Christmas.

 

Good Luck, Captain Rob 

 

Here’s an early Christmas present:

 

I meet at a coffee shop most mornings with around 15 guys.  It’s the closest thing to a male joy luck club.  About 10 years ago Nick was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  After surgery, doctors thought they removed the tumor.  Two years later Nick died.  Nick’s son and daughter were in college then became engineers.  Jim from our group still does the taxes for Nick’s widow Sandy.

A couple of months ago while Jim was doing Sandy’s quarterly taxes she told him Nick Jr. hated being an engineer in So Cal and wanted to be a firefighter.  I immediately called Sandy and was put in touch with Nick Jr.

Nick Jr. was serious about becoming a firefighter. He had already obtained his EMT and completed an academy.  He had taken a few tests including LA City and didn’t make the cut to go forward.  His next oral was in 2 weeks with a premier So Cal department.  I told Nick in memory of his dad I wanted to send him our program and get in a coaching session before his oral.

A few weeks later I got an e-mail from Nick that he passed his oral and was in background.  He then passed his poly and psych.  On the day before Thanksgiving, Nick forwarded an e-mail to me that was inviting him and several other candidates to meet the chief’s the following week.  He didn’t know what to expect.  Minutes later I was talking to Nick.  I told Nick it’s our experience that this was going to be a job offer conditional on passing the medical.  This was an emotional time because Nick got this e-mail on his birthday and was driving home for Thanksgiving the next day.

That next week Nick was with the other candidates in the lobby when they called his name first. Indeed this was a job offer pending the medical.  I told Nick they probably called him first because he was number one on the list.  He passed his medical 2 days later.

Last night I get this e-mail:

Everything with my medical is good. I'm going in tomorrow to meet with HR and fill out insurance paperwork, W4 etc.. Then I have an appointment with the administrative Chief for a uniform and mask fitting. I have my orientation next Sat in the morning to meet the rest of the recruits and find out everything we need to know about the tower. We're still set for a Jan 5 start date for the tower.  Nick

Reply: An early Christmas present.  Welcome to the fire service Nick.  Your father would be proud.

P. S. Here’s the program Nick used to gain his badge: http://www.eatstress.com/special_offer.htm
