Overview

Firefighters and firefighting professionals, at last there's a book dedicated to your unique field that shows resumes and cover letters that worked for real people. Volunteers and newcomers to the field will learn how to show off their potential and skills to best advantage, and experienced professionals will find help in advancing in the industry. Firefighting professionals often change fields, too, and the book includes resumes of individuals who have successfully transitioned into other areas. The book also shows samples of paperwork involved in obtaining federal government positions; for example, the book includes samples of the KSAs as well as the "resumix" often required to apply for federal positions.

When firefighters prepare their resume and other materials needed to explore employment opportunities, they realize that they have a unique background. At last there is a resume book that shows firefighters how to best present their qualifications, credentials, licenses, experience, volunteer work, education and training, affiliations, and other information. Would-be firefighters as well as experienced firefighting professionals will find outstanding samples of resumes and cover letters that worked for real people in their field. A special section of the book shows firefighters how to apply for government jobs and how to write the specialized resumes needed to apply for federal employment.

Praise for books in the Real-Resumes Series:"Distinguished by its highly readable samples." - Library Journal"These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy—with Real-Resumes in hand."— The Midwest Book Review

Finally the Real-Resumes Series created a specialized book of resumes and cover letters for firefighters." M.

This book shows how to prepare the specialized paperwork needed to get a federal position in the firefighting field." B.
