>tfw Finance degree
>tfw I just want to be a fireman

t. Pyromaniac. I'm that weird kid that loves burning stuff and staring at flames (or extinguishing them when they're out of control).

Is it a worthwhile career?

You could look up more information about being a fireman in the Occupational outlook handbook. What would be he problem with volunteering at a fire station while working on your degree? You would have both experience and that degree under your belt. I'm pretty sure you could use that same degree in the occupation you want to work with. Do the research and talk to people who are working in the career you are interested in.

Jesus please don't be a fireman. Firemen that are actually obsessed with fire and putting out fires are the most obnoxious and dangerous firemen there are. They're like the cops that signed on because they are desperate to feel in control by carrying a badge and a gun.

Please light fires in your backyard and put those out, kthxbye

What's wrong with picking a job you'd enjoy? Are the dudes that accidentally ended up in such a position better?

most firefighters i've met seem to like their job. they're also pretty classless and dumb. and being a firefighter means spending 24 hours with a few of those people every other day or so.

also, shit doesn't burn as much as it used to. the only real fires left are in the wild. if you want structure fires, go to detroit. if you live in a rich area you'll see smoke maybe once per year.

You're supposed to enjoy helping people. Enjoying putting out fires means you'll be the dick that ruins a property with 10 times the water you need because you're not about helping people, you're a kid that likes to play with fire.

You are completely right. You surely can't get away with a multiplier of 10, especially if you're given proper training. With that in mind, I don't see why I'd be unfit for the job.

How classless/dumb are we talking about? I know the salary isn't spectacular compared to your typical Actuary, but it surely requires excellent communication/coordination/problem-solving/<insert-buzzword>?
