My first job when I was 16 was in a fire alarm company. I started out in a fire alarm technician position but after a few years, the job was cut in half. I was in the middle of a fire, the alarm company was out of service, and I was the only one still in a job. I had this huge sense of relief, but it was short-lived. I was only there for one year. The next year was even worse.
It’s a sad and telling comment that the job market for fire alarm techs is currently so low. As you can see from the video above, the market is so tight right now that companies are forced to shut down new jobs in order to keep enough people working. The result: fire alarms are still in the same place they were in 2013, when we first saw this issue.
I’m sure there are many reasons for this. One is that everyone is still a little too young to have been hired in the previous year. Another is that it’s just not a good idea to get too excited about starting a new job, especially if you’re starting out at a company that has been around for many years.
There is not much sense in saying that fire alarm tech jobs are the only way to keep fire-prone people from getting themselves killed. The fact is that it depends on the job, and I think most people who are involved in fire-safety startups are always scared of getting their own fire alarm tech jobs.
I think this is what got me wondering about the job market today. I was doing a review of a company that is not too scary and I made a comment: “Well the job is in a huge warehouse, so if the worst happens, there are probably a few places around where you can land.” And that’s where I am now, getting back to the job market.
I think there are a few key differences between the day-to-day work of fire-safety startups and the job market. First of all, most fire-safety startups are not a startup at all. They’re a company with a proven track record of successfully creating a product that solves a need and then they’ve spent years building a network of people and relationships that go with the product.
Most people I know have been in this field for at least a few years before they even start talking to others about it. Fire-safety startups are a bit different. Theyre usually small startups because that means they have to be very focused on a specific problem.
The challenge with startups and startup management is that they can be very time-intensive. For example, if your startup is developing a fire-safety system that has to be up and running in five minutes, you have to hire a team of people who can start work immediately without putting a lot of time into the product.
That’s why fire-safety startups are often focused on two things: creating a system that can be easily maintained and automated, and offering it to people in the first place. To be effective, you have to make sure that your people get the job done, and you have to give them the tools they need and the training they need to be able to handle the job.
Its a very big job, so if you’re not an experienced fire-safety professional, you can expect a very high turnover rate. Most companies use a formal two-step hiring process, where you first contact potential applicants and ask them to demonstrate their ability to work with a team. The second step is where you hire a temporary employee, and once the temporary employee is finished, you have a permanent employee.
