I will be applying to Pike Township Fire Dept. this coming Monday. As the title says, this is the 1st time I will be applying to a career dept. Any suggestions, tips, ideas will all be greatly appreciated.
Absolutely don't expect to get it the first time out, but try to be positive. I agree apply to as many as you can and use each one as a buliding block: you may only get through the written one time, then to the physical the next, etc. It may only take one or several to get through an entire process and get on the job. Also, don't test in one area. I have tested from the East to West to the South. The more experience the better and be willing to re-locate if this is what you want.
