What it means to be a security guard

A common misconception about security guards is that they never have to deal with people. This is not true and most of the job includes working with a variety of different people. It’s a career that involves being flexible and getting along with a diverse group of people. Those of you who are looking into a security guard job should know that dealing with people will be on your list of job duties. Working as a security guard is nothing short of exciting. Sure, there may be some days where you spend time watching the cameras, but there will be plenty of days that are both interesting and exciting.

The future for the security industry

Safety and the threat of terrorism are growing concerns for many companies, and as a result, job prospects look good for those of you wanting to become security guards. According to the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics), the number of available security jobs will increase faster than average over the next few years. More specialized assignments, such as those in casinos, will see the largest jump, but  these jobs require additional training and experience. If you’re looking for a dynamic job where every day is different, then perhaps working as a security guard is right for you.
