"Getting hired was a long and frustrating process but having access to actual feedback was invaluable. Knowing the extent that you should answer questions was also something that I needed.
You even interviewed me at one point and I remember knowing almost immediately that I didn't have the job. It was clear I didn't know what was truly expected. (At least as far as the interview was concerned)
Having the information that you give in the Firefighter Oral Interview Academy enabled me to understand the expectations and actually exceed those expectations. Thank you!"
-Pierce Williams, Firefighter, San Jose Fire Dept., California
"I have been watching and studying your Tomorrow's Firefighter videos for the past couple of years to help me pursue my dream of becoming a firefighter.
I'm excited to say that I have been offered a career as a firefighter at the Columbia, Missouri fire department and I start my academy July 17.
I just wanted to say thank you for helping me with all the information that you've shared in your program. It has helped me tremendously and I would recommend your coaching to all firefighter candidates. I'll keep watching your videos."
-Jordan Klebba, Firefighter, Columbia Fire Dept., Missouri
"The Tomorrow's Firefighter interview academy is the best tool for any new firefighter chasing the dream of becoming a full time career firefighter. After being out of the academy for 2 years and having no luck getting hired I turned to Chief Guccione's academy and through the online program along with the Facebook live coaching calls, I was able to pass all 4 of my next interviews and receive an offer of employment with the City of Saint John Fire Department.
I truly believe that the Firefighter Oral Interview Academy had a large impact on me being able to get the career I've been chasing for years. I would recommend this Academy to anyone new in the fire service and I promise you that you will not be disappointed in the outcome.
Thank you so much Dean for helping me realize my dream!"
-Eric Hendricks, Firefighter, St. John Fire Dept., New Brunswick, Canada
“I approached Battalion Chief Dean Guccione via email after watching a few of his FREE-interview preparation videos online.
My "gut feeling" told me he was legit and had the knowledge and experience to really help me achieve my dream job. I took the leap and enrolled into the program.
I experienced a very awkward Chief’s interview not long ago. Many questions by the Chiefs left me speechless or rambling. Long story short I was unprepared for this part of the hiring process until I enrolled in the Firefighter Oral Interview Academy.
Dean's program has a strong foundation and is well-organized. It has several features that really helped me get my thoughts together such as the PDF notes and MP3 option to listen to the material. What I like the most about this program is that he is not giving you "answers”. I learned how to plug in my personal life experiences into any question and that is what set me apart from the other candidates.
I applied myself fully to this program and it paid off. I got hired with my dream fire department! And I just finished Rookie School!”
-Raul Zaragoza, Firefighter, Arlington Fire Dept., Texas
“Before your program, I struggled in my interviews and I would get caught up in my thoughts and I would lose track and forget critical key talking points which is why I didn’t do well on my interviews before the Firefighter Oral Interview Academy. What helped me the most was the way Chief Guccione broke down the questions and gave examples of what a panel was actually looking for in an answer using my own personal experiences.”
-Matt Keane, Firefighter, Virginia Beach Fire Dept., Virginia
"The Firefighter Oral Interview Academy is an awesome course! It helped me see why I didn't do well in my first 6 oral interviews. Chief Dean Guccione is so thorough and he helps you think about your past job experiences, skills and strengths and how to incorporate them into a successful oral interview. I'm so much better prepared and more confident now and I just got hired!"
-Dustin DuCasse, Firefighter, Boca Raton Fire Dept., Florida
"I couldn't afford to take the time to figure this out by trial and error. With Chief Guccione, I felt he was honest and he helped me understand what departments are looking for in a candidate that other programs and coaches didn't explain. It's one of the greatest investments I've made so far! It will help you get the job especially with his guidance and coaching and you will have a positive return because you will learn how to organize your thoughts so you can stand out to the panel."
-Daniella Montiel, Firefighter/Paramedic, Hallandale Fire Dept., Florida
"I scored very high on my panel interview and that wouldn’t have been possible without Dean Guccione. His videos helped me tremendously understand what it takes to get that high score. He kept me motivated and helped me control my emotions in my interview and I knocked it out of the park and score really high! This is my first application ever and I just got hired with LaFayette County Fire Department and it’s all because of his videos. The program really does work and it's outstanding!"
-Justin Johnson, Firefighter, LaFayette County Fire Dept., Georgia
“After 5 years of testing from as far north as Philadelphia to as far south as Richmond, Virginia, it’s no coincidence that I got hired with the Baltimore Fire Department right after I started studying your program! Thank you for everything! You’re awesome, Dean!”
– Joey Heinze, Firefighter, Baltimore Fire Dept., Maryland
“You and Tomorrow's Firefighter have personally helped me accomplish my goal of getting my dream career as a full time Firefighter/Paramedic! I recommend to anyone this amazing program!”
– Steve Vargas, Firefighter/Paramedic, Spokane Fire Dept., Washington
