T he FDNY First Deputy Commissioner’s Office and Office of Recruitment and Retention hosted their first-ever Firefighter Career Development Information Session on Dec.5 at our Fire Academy on Randall’s Island.
Throughout the event, our Firefighters were provided with detailed information about the different career paths they can choose from as a professional in our fire suppression. In addition, the Firefighters participated in question and answer sessions and one-on-one discussions with our veteran Fire Officers and Bureau Officials to learn more about the requirements they need to fulfill for career advancement here at the FDNY.
“Working for the FDNY represents helping people and it’s important that our members know that there’s great support here in our Department to help them continue to learn and prosper in their career,” said Mentorship Coordinator Jéneen Gilliam. “This event is helping to ensure that our Firefighters are informed about all of the opportunities that our Department has to offer because that will be useful information throughout their career.”
