If you are a veteran trying to transition into civilian life then a security career is a pretty good bet. Many security firms actively seek and recruit retired military personnel, and some training courses offer discounts to former members of the military.
Allied Barton is one company that has worked very hard to support veterans. A recent press release revealed that they hired 5000 veterans and reservists last year.
Allied Barton has a Hire Our Heroes initiative in action. As a part of this initiative they have committed to hiring another 20,000 veterans in the next 4 years.
Allied Barton has offices all over the country. If there is one near you and you are a veteran then there is a clear opportunity here. Don’t wait for a formal job posting. Just get your state’s required training, get your security guard license, and apply right away. You could be one of the next beneficiaries of this hiring spree.
