If you have started your career in the security industry or you have been working in the security industry then you might be wondering what skills you should have in order to get the job. Well attending an interview is a challenging part and you might be questioning what are the skills and prerequisites you should acquire to leave a lasting impression on the interviewer.
I have shortlisted some of the tips and hopefully, these tips will help you in getting a job.
5 tips that will assist you to get hired as a Security Officer/Security Guard
- The first thing is when you go to your interview; make sure you are dressed well and professional. The person who will interview you will notice your dress code. Your appearance is the first thing the interviewer will see, meaning it plays a major role in the impression you will give off. So make sure to dress appropriately and professionally.
- There is one more important thing, guess what? Timing, make sure you reach your interview location on time. To ensure prompt arrival to your interview, make a note at least a day before of: what time you will leave your house, how much time you will need to get prepared at home and what time you should leave your house in order to reach at the location at least 15 minutes earlier. This workout is immensely important for your interview.
- The interviewer also would like to see how confident you are? An essential trait a security guard must have is confidence, without confidence you will not be seen as able to safeguard one’s assets/business, making you not worthy of the job. So you need to be confident throughout your interview. Try to show respect and be kind so that the interviewer sees you are a good person and think of hiring you.
- Make some notes ahead of time and prepare yourself about what you are going to say in the interview. Introduce yourself in short words and why you think you are the most suitable person to be a good security guard. If you have any past achievements you can explain professionally.
- Last but not the least, be patient. Let the interviewer do the speaking and you listen to him/her carefully, reply as best as you can. In the end, you can express that if you will be considered for the security guard position, you will try to bring positive changes in this role as well as play an important role in safeguarding the businesses.
