What motivates firefighters to choose their career, and what keeps them happy in their jobs?
Ken, a retired chief and volunteer firefighter from Pennsylvania, is writing a psychology paper on firefighters' intrinsic motivation, and wants to bring the following questions to The Kitchen Table:
1. Do you enjoy your current occupation? If yes, why?
2. What makes you satisfied with your job performance?
3. Why did you choose this career?
4. If you are not happy in your current position, why?
You can help Ken out by leaving your answers in the comments, or by emailing them to me at Christine.Laquer@firerescue1.com. Answers will be used anonymously.
Thanks for your help!
