Re: Brampton 2018

I specifically asked if this was an official offer and she said yes. I asked because (and told her) Brampton was my number one choice (I live in Brampton) and if it wasn't I would apply elsewhere. I told her that I wouldn't wait (I actually thought she said April was when the offers would be sent) ...

Re: Brampton 2018

-I was asked for certs at my second interview and gave them to the panel. -I was not asked for references at any time. -I believe that Brampton required valid OFAI at the time of application submission only and not valid OFAI certs through the entire hiring process.

Re: Brampton 2018

Spring recruit class is on hold, as the city is unsure of how many are actually retiring now.

Re: Brampton 2018

I was asked for all my certifications for the second interview. It didn't request references in that email. Yes, all second interviews were done last week.

Re: Fundamentals of Writing an Awesome Firefighter Resume

I too look ALOT of resumes and know that you only have 45 seconds to a minute to show that individual reading your resume that you move onto the next pile. Having a statement of objective is a waste of space, ...

HR and fire admin know when they bring you in for an interview what your overall objective is. When an "objective or summary" is a few lines which takes up spa...

Re: Police to Fire

Keep doing what you are doing and secretly start getting yourself ready to do the switch. You are young enough that you can take the above noted courses while still working police, and have great chances of getting hired. Being a police officer shows alot of positive things to an interview panel whe...
