It’s the first time in American history that five generations are sharing the workplace, from Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, the Millennials or Generation Y, and the new unnamed generation. With five generations come five sets of ideas, how to conduct one’s self, approach activities, values and motivators. Different beliefs, understandings, and undertakings create misinterpretations and frustrations. The fire service is currently facing a similar situation. It’s imperative to recognize and understand these differences to avoid misunderstandings and to help your department work effectively to meet its goals. Not every employee displays aspect of their generation category, but understanding the individualities of each generation will help with teamwork, supervision, embracing change, and productivity. With each generation there are different communication styles and driving factors that motivate production. It is essential that you understand how each generation communicates and what they motivators are so that you can communicate ideas and organization vision to them. What can we do in the fire service to prepare to handle these challenges?

All throughout school, students are ask what we want to be when we grow up. Many of us know or have a pretty good idea, but others have no clue what they want to pursue as a career in life, whether it be furthering their education at a university or attending a technical school. There are other students that plan to start work right out of high school. Either way we all have a plan, and the purpose of this paper is to inform you of mine. I personally struggle in making big decisions like deciding what to do with my life, but then I realized I have been asking myself the wrong questions. Instead of asking what I want to be when I grow up, I asked myself what do I want out of life? what are some of my goals that I wish to achieve? This led

Never thinking that she would own up to much but always hoping that she would accomplish more than hoped Larissa Brown worked hard all throughout high school then held down a steady full-time job while going to college. Larissa didn’t know what she wanted to do for a living she simply stated “I was unsure of what career path I wanted to take my last year of college.” She continued to say, “I was still debating whether or not I wanted to go the medical route or be a teacher….my [chemistry] professor was very passionate about the material she was teaching. Her passion and determination inspired me to want to do the same thing for younger generations.” My sister had only two specific goals in her life after college and those were to move out of our mom’s house and get a good paying job teaching kids science. So working for that career she gained a lot of responsibility which “played a great role in my coming of age process. She went on to say, “I gained the most responsibility my last year of college when I was working 40 hours a week managing two yogurt shops and taking 16 credit hours at ASU. All of these new responsibilities did help me become a responsible adult and have the ability to live on my own. I was officially ready to be responsible for me, 100%.” Larissa grew the most during her college years and she said that high school was when she developed her own persona and college was when she developed

I have always known that I wanted a career that would allow me to make a difference in other people lives. As a young adult, I was faced with a major role change that came about unexpectedly. My dead beat father and his new wife had a child which gave me the opportunity to be a big sister. Shortly after the birth of my brothers, my step mother and father were arrested. I was barely out of high school when faced with the decision to take on the role of my brothers’ caretaker or allow the state to take them. This was more than just a major decision; this was a life altering event. I believe that children should not be burdened with adult problems. However, in the real world children are faced with grown up problems daily. When children have to take on roles that go beyond their cognitive level of thinking they become cheated out of a time in a life that should be filled with joyful memories and valuable age appropriate life lessons.
I have been think of what to write about for this responds and I couldn't think of anything, but then it came to me. I was sitting at the dinner table with my mom and brother and they asked me what I want to do after high school and I said go to college to play football or take over the farm. But as they always do they said no what are you really want to do. My whole life I have been told you are too small to play football or you don't see your father scraping to get by with the farm. I know that playing football in the NFL is more of a dream then a real career and I can see that but the farm is a realistic idea, but people still want me to do what they want me to do and not what I want to do. I know that they are trying to only help be but what I believe in is doing your own thing.
I have shared my secret with a helper. My counselor and I spent a month working on my secret. It felt good telling them what was going on because they helped me cope with how to handle the anniversary of the days. I think it’s harder to share my secret with a close friend because I feel like they don’t know what to say or how to handle the situation, and I think they are judging me, or they feel sorry for me. Since I have disclosed my secret with a helper, my fantasy did come true due to helping me cope with my secret. No, I never imagined my helping telling others because they are a licensed counselor and are obligated not to say anything, and I trusted
Being repeatedly told that your career choice is a waste of time and money hurts. Being told by someone you respect, someone you look up to makes it worse. But being told by your parents? I wanted to give up, everything I had done leading up to this
