Why a Security Job is the Ultimate "Job Security".

I can’t help but find it amusing everytime a potential student for one of our security courses asks the question; “Will I be able to get a job after graduating from your training?”

I find it hard to believe that there could be people out there who are not aware of the growth in private security or the fact that positions formerly held by Police or Military are now being filled by private security companies.

The tens of thousands of private security contractors assisting the military in places like Iraq and Afghanistan are one example, but every time you look around, you can see more and more evidence that private secuity is growing in leaps and bounds.

I remember when I first went to play golf in Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, several years ago. The gates were all manned and controlled by soldiers. These days access is totally enforced by a private security company.

As long as there are hate groups and hate filled individulas, whether they call themselves; White Supremists, Al-Qaeda, Arian Nation, Black Panthers, Anti-Government separatists, or a host of other names, there will always be work for personnel with a good knowledge of security.

The more knowledge and experience you possess, the more you can seek to charge for your services. A client recently told me that they hired an out-of-work lawyer about a year ago for their company. Apparently, a few thousand got laid off in Washington D.C. the same week, so the market was flooded with job seekers with law degrees.

The next time you hear of someone losing their job in a law firm, or an auto plant, or a financial institution – tell them about the security profession. It might not be the world’s oldest profession, but it is certainly one of the most stable – in good times and in bad.
