Are we Guaranteed a Job?

We are currently receiving many requests regarding our 7 day Executive Protection training program in Las Vegas from 12/6 – 12/12/09.

One of those people e-mailed me today and asked; “After we finish our training at SEXTON, are we guaranteed a job?” I told him that it was a good topic for a blog, so I hope he’s reading.

My first response is always; “there are no guarantees in life”. Those training schools who are promising jobs upon graduation are probably the very ones who will never send you on a single assignment.

At SEXTON we hire approx. 50% of all of our graduates over the course of time. Not everyone will be hired the first week. We would have a far higher rate of hiring course attendees if the GRADUATES themselves returned phone calls in a timely manner and made themselves more available.

Here is a secret that we tell those who enroll in our courses; YOU are the one responsible for your future and YOU are the one who can ultimately make or break you. In every single class, we have graduates who do not bother sending in their paperwork to become registered and to be able to work legally.

To make matters worse, we are one of the few schools who bring all of the necessary paperwork to the course, show them how to complete it, assist them to properly complete it – making sure they do not make mistakes, fingerprint them and take a digital photograph (that will be required by the Department of Criminal Justice Services to receive the PPS registration).

Bottom line, if you go through our E.P. training program and you are serious about working as an E.P. agent, I guarantee that you will get work.

Of course there is a big difference between “thinking” you want to do this job and actaully doing it.
