Electronic Security Association on an Industry Hiring Mission, Encourages Veterans to Get Into Security

IRVING, Texas (Nov. 10, 2017) –  The Electronic Security Association’s (ESA) “Get Into Security” initiative is encouraging veterans to join more than 500,000 residential and commercial security industry professionals who make a difference in the lives of millions.

The electronic security and life safety industry is a rapidly expanding field with a wide-variety of opportunities readily-available, including: sales, marketing, installation, administration, technical support, engineering and customer care. Advances in smart homes, buildings and cities are opening the doors to new opportunities for growth.

“Technological innovations have expanded our industry – and there is a great demand for the leadership and technical skills many veterans developed during their time in the military,” says Angela White, president of the Electronic Security Association. “The great news is that these jobs are well-suited to veterans of all ages.”

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, among the 453,000 unemployed veterans in 2016, 60 percent were age 45 and over, 36 percent were 25 to 44, and 4 percent were 18 to 24.

“Military professionals uniquely understand the continual need for training and personal development – and their adaptability to evolving circumstances gives them an edge in many security-related jobs,” White says.
