FDNY High School Students Prepare for the Workforce
With assistance from FDNY Office of Recruitment and Diversity Community Outreach Coordinator Fabricio Caro, right, FDNY High School for Fire and Life Safety student Terone Webster worked to enhance his résumé during the workshop in April.
Seniors in the FDNY High School for Fire and Life Safety's Job Readiness Class were able to get a jumpstart in preparing for the real world in April as participants in a Résumé Writing Workshop.
As part of the program, 24 students learned key skills including how to write a basic résumé and job interview tips. The students also worked one-on-one with staff members in the FDNY's Office of Recruitment and Diversity to improve their résumés, as well as learn about the different career opportunities within the FDNY.

The workshop is one of several initiatives designed to help the students strengthen the skills they will utilize to pass the course's final project, which is to complete a mock job interview with a FDNY commissioner.
The high school, located in Brooklyn, is a small thematic school that educates students from 9th to 12th grade while introducing them to careers as firefighters, paramedics and EMTs.
