My brother is one of those guys who just doesn’t know what he wants to do with his life. He’s never had a career really, just a series of dead-end jobs that he held merely to pay the bills. But he was laid off recently, and doesn’t even have one of those to go to anymore. I think this is the perfect time for him to think about going back to school and getting a degree.
I was trying to think of a recession-proof job, one that wouldn’t be eliminated just because the economy turns sour, and I came up with fire service professional. These are people like fire chiefs, fire marshals, parks and wildlife fire prevention managers, risk management analysts, and fire and emergency response managers, people who work to prevent fires or lay out rescue plans in the event of a major blaze. These are all very challenging and rewarding jobs in a growing field, which is just what my brother needs.
Of course, he’ll also need the proper training first, which is why I’m going to tell him to check out the online Bachelor of arts in fire service administration offered by Lewis University. Lewis is just about 35 minutes away from my brother’s place, but there’s a heck of a lot of traffic between here and there, so taking the online program would make things much easier. He wouldn’t have to worry about the commute or keeping the gas tank filled, and would just be able to concentrate on his classes. The fact that Lewis University is a well known, respected institution with a rich history means that a degree earned from the school will give my brother an edge over other job candidates and put him on the road towards a fulfilling career.
I really think an online Bachelor’s degree in Fire Service Administration would be perfect for my brother. I’m going to forward him this information about Lewis University right now. I hope he follows through on it!
