Miami Private Security Jobs Overview

Thwarting crime, cheaters, and vandalism, private security jobs are for those valiant souls with watchful eyes and protective spirits. Not only are there stable positions for security officers within retail operations, corporate buildings, private residences, event venues, and the bodyguard field, but additional opportunities are projected to open in casinos too (as more states legalize gambling). According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment for gambling surveillance officers and investigators should see a solid increase of over 6% over the next decade.

Private security guards don’t have the same purview and authority as sworn police officers who work for city or state, but this career will still have you monitoring grounds and cameras to ensure the safety of whomever or whatever you’re protecting. Daily duties may include:

  • Patrolling property vigilantly.
  • Providing or denying entry to authorized or unauthorized people.
  • Accompanying your employer to various destinations.
  • Making rounds to determine potential threats and check access points.
  • Detaining people who enter without authorization until the police arrive.

About Working in Miami, Florida

Miami is further south than any other major mainland U.S. city, but it still manages to have an active snow ski club. Since 1968, they've hosted happy hours, cultural events, and ski trips to Utah, Canada, and Japan. But that's not Miami's only quirk. One of the most unique things about Miami is its extensive Art Deco architecture. More than 800 buildings adorn Miami's Art Deco Historic District with pastel paint and neon-lit exteriors. So, if you're not spending all your time relaxing at the beach, strolling the streets of the Wynwood neighborhood's outdoor graffiti museum, or eating at an open-air restaurant in Little Havana, you might want to search for jobs in Miami.

Miami's Brickell Avenue has been called "Wall Street South" and the "financial capital of Latin America," supporting Miami jobs in banking, finance, and international commerce. If you're interested in pursuing a job in Miami, you can also check out the nearby communities of Miami Gardens, Hialeah, and Hollywood as well.

Update Your Miami Private Security Resume

Before you start searching for private security jobs, you’ll need to fortify a resume that plays up your strengths in security and surveillance—and that reinforces what sets you apart from other candidates. Toughen it up by emphasizing relevant elements, such as a military or law enforcement background, along with any experience with patrolling methods, surveillance technology (such as CCTV systems), and threat assessments. Extras like criminal justice knowledge can only boost your attractiveness to recruiters.
