• A security guard job does not fall into the routine, and it does not become mundane. Your job is different every day; you come in contact with new people and face new situations constantly.

• You are not always required to have previous experience or training. Some companies will hire you and provide your training.

• Not only nightclubs and banks need security guards. Factories, shopping centres and grocery stores also hire security guards. Do not limit yourself or think that there are no jobs out there.

• It is a misconception that as a security guard you will not have to deal with people. You will actually have to interact with a variety of people on a daily basis.

• Some days might seem too long, like in every other job, but action is sure to appear. It is an exciting and interesting job, and it sure has a vast variety of positions to choose from.
