Security Services Industry Hot for Job Seekers During Down Economy

AlliedBarton Security Services Is 29th on the Yahoo! HotJobs 100 List

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - Despite this tough economy, where downsizing has many individuals looking for new career options, the security services industry is one that job-seekers across the country shouldn't over look.

AlliedBarton Security Services, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, is ranked 29th on the 2009 Yahoo! HotJobs 100 list, a list that is developed by evaluating companies with job availability.

"AlliedBarton is continuing to hire the highest quality security officers across the country, despite the economic downturn," said Jerry Ramos, AlliedBarton's Talent Acquisition Manager. "We have new accounts starting, which requires us to find local talent."

AlliedBarton is using new technologies for recruiting. In addition to job Websites like Yahoo, and the company's own, AlliedBarton is utilizing social networking sites such as LinkedIn to recruit for managerial positions. "It is important for us to take advantage of these new recruiting trends as we fill positions and help people continue their careers," added Ramos.

AlliedBarton is also working closely with community groups, such as veteran and senior organizations and employment agencies, to find talent from outside the security industry.

"The employment opportunities in the security services industry are not security experience exclusive," said Ramos. "Management, human resources and training personnel, just to name a few, are all vital to a comprehensive security program. An industry leader, such as AlliedBarton, delivers meaningful benefits, employee recognition and training that makes a career with the company very desirable."

Whether you are a recent college graduate or a seasoned professional, the security services industry has a job for you. "More candidates are now viewing an opportunity in the security field for what it truly is -- a positive career choice," said Steve Lee, AlliedBarton's National Accounts Director, Recruitment and Training.
