07/23/09 159 W - + 11 - 10 Making the Right Impression on Your Fire Station Visit

Here's a useful article from Firehouse.com, for those interested in fire service careers. It's a list of recommendations for fire station visits, beginning with the benefits therein. Why visit? To network, to learn about the job, to meet those doing the job, and meet those newly hired in the job. Writer Steve Przibrowoski gives tips on scheduling, such as calling ahead and even how to find station addresses. He talks about etiquette and how to conduct yourself, and even recommendations for attire. Tank tops and flip-flops are not good. He has suggestions on how to extend interactions, such as mock interviews or asking about other stations to visit. It's a very good article, and with plenty of proactive advice. Read the article. And for any applicants reading here, post questions if you have 'em. Or send as private mail, and we'll repost and ask readers for answers.
