I have 5 seasons which include type 2 hand crew time and type 1 hotshot crew time. I am also fft1 and ICT5-qualified and have my faller B. Had some professional assistance with my resume and my app was perfect. Everything that needed to be uploaded was there and I never made the referral list either.
I am also cutting it close to 37, 1 year to be exact. What are the fire hire team looking for exactly? Would it help me out to perhaps get some time on different modules like engine or helitack? Or should I be putting even more time in on the hotshot crew? It’s really hard to leave a crew that’s become your second family but if it will help me out in my career, I’ll do what needs to be done. Can anyone give me some feedback on my situation?
