Thank you Chief. I'm going to pass that around to a couple of guys who I think would make great firefighters.
Truth is, "if only I could do it all over again", I'd be getting my application in asap.
Here's a little inside scoop. In my younger days when I got the job, the job was given to me about six months before two other guys got it. We all got the same overall score. But why did I get it first ?
Because I had my application in a few weeks BEFORE those other two guys. So the earlier you get that application in, the better it is.
The earliest filing used to count in NYC....guys would camp out to be at the front of the line....same scores were settled by the earliest filing time....today time does not count Social Security numbers are used to settle ties.
