Security Guards

Exploring This Job

Opportunities for part-time or summer work as security guards are not generally available to high school students. You may, however, work as a lifeguard, on a safety patrol, and as a school hallway monitor, which can provide helpful experience. Another way to explore the field is to conduct an informational interview with a security guard. Ask your school's career services office for help with setting this up, and prepare a list of questions in advance.
