In many places, there is still some degree of stigma surrounding the career of a security guard. But what naysayers fail to understand is that being a security guard can actually come with some pretty great benefits. So if you are thinking about a potential career, here are a few reasons why you should consider becoming a security professional.

  1. Job security. It is a sad fact of life, but we are not anywhere near the point where we no longer need good men and women to protect us. More and more businesses and organizations are recognizing that there is a need for more security guards to protect their property and personnel. And while we wish that wasn’t the case, it is good news for people choosing to pursue security as a career. You will be able to find work virtually wherever you go, and your job won’t be going anywhere for quite some time.
  2. If you want to become a police officer sometime in the future, working as a security guard can provide invaluable on the job experience. On the other hand, you may discover that working in law enforcement is not for you. By working in security first, you can test the waters and see if law enforcement is the right career choice for you.
  3. The ability to structure your schedule for your needs. If you are still in school or are looking for a supplemental income, working as a security guard can be a good choice for you. A lot of the hours that security guards put in occur during the night shift, meaning that there is still time during the day to pursue other goals.
