Honesty or $10 words that are vague but trendy

Qualifications or duties, how much frosting do you add to get a job? I keep getting told that "this means that" or you did that so you are qualified for this. I choose my words for communicating efficiently and effectively. So I am curious , is this an age gap thing or must one be obsequious to the interviewer using misnomers to gain employment in today's career battle royal. I prefer using words I and the interviewer both know and understand. But still underutilized in the monetary compensation league. Almost 60 and tired of getting notices that want a highly energetic and eager to please attitude in the exciting fields of Janitorial, Labor intensive and those Uber/Lift drivers. Over 30 years work experience including being a Firefighter/Officer with a major city. Responding to emergencies was my passion, making deli sandwiches not so much.

This job is not for everybody. You've got to really love it to stay in it and make a career out of it.

So many job offers

I’m retiring soon. 30 years in the fire service as a Captain firefighter/paramedic. Word of mouth has sent me four good job offers. Have to sit down and find what will work best for my family. Do I stay with the paramedic side or move over to safety manager with my OSHA certs and degree? Both pay well, but one is very close to home with no challenges; the other three involve some travel but a lot of new challenges. Should I go for one of them or put my resume Officially out there in January.

Interview

Interviewing for the fire department isn't the same as interviewing for other jobs. Your not competing against others based on the interview. The interview is more of an informational meeting with the fire chief.
