2020 is a tough year for everyone, but the entry-level job pool has been hit particularly hard. Millions of graduates are entering the worst job market in the U.S. since the Great Depression and the timeline for recovery remains uncertain. The long-term effects of this economy will undoubtedly affect career paths and earning potentials for years to come.
The bad news: This negative impact on entry-level jobs poses a challenge for recent college grads and an even more difficult time for high school graduates who are entering the job market. According to data from Glassdoor, job postings in May 2020 featuring entry-level positions were down a staggering 68% compared to 2019.
The good news: The security industry has not been as profoundly disrupted as the rest of the world in the wake of COVID-19. At SecurAmerica, we’re actively hiring for a variety of positions that cater to different skill sets, schedules, and abilities.
Don’t put your career on hold
We recognize that it’s a frustrating time to be an entry-level job seeker. Even amongst the jobs that are currently posted, applicants are frequently complaining about unresponsive companies that are letting applications go ignored. In many circumstances, hiring has slowed or been frozen across most industries. But at the end of the day, you need an income to stay financially afloat and you need to keep moving forward as a professional to keep your morale up during this challenging time.
Our comprehensive training philosophy and approach at SecurAmerica is thoughtfully built to equip you with the education, skills, and practice you need to excel in a new role. Throughout your professional journey this far, you’ve built a foundation of transferable skills that will serve as a launchpad into your future in the security industry.
Become a pivoting pro and develop your soft skills
On the subject of transferable experience, a position in the security industry will help develop your soft skills. Soft skills refer to a combination of abilities that will enable you to navigate new environments, develop your capacity to work in a team, and set and achieve goals. Soft skills include communication, personality traits, attitude, emotional intelligence, problem-solving, and organization. This skill set is something you’ll sharpen throughout your professional journey, no matter where your career takes you.
Regardless of your original professional aspirations before the pandemic, now is a time to become a pivoting pro. We encourage you to be flexible and seek a secure job that can serve as your stepping stone. SecurAmerica has focused a large amount of attention and resources on building a work culture that celebrates the performance of our officers and treats them with respect, dignity, and professionalism. Whether you’re seeking a flexible schedule to complement your emerging career or you want to find a long-term role where you can move up the ladder, we have a place for you at SecurAmerica.
Aim for success
One hard truth is that this pandemic is not going away anytime soon. We have to adapt to a changing world and find meaning in our day-to-day, even if it’s not what we had anticipated for 2020. If you’re too preoccupied dwelling on how COVID-19 has pressed pause on big plans, you’re not setting yourself up for success in the long run. During your application process, we’ll help match you with a job post with skills adjacent to where you are now and where you want to go next.
Our employee-focused work culture will bring meaning to your daily responsibilities. We genuinely care for the welfare and happiness of every employee on our team and are committed to helping you build a rewarding career. Whether you decide to stay with us for six months or six years, our goal is for you to enthusiastically say that SecurAmerica was the best company you have ever worked for!
