How can the security industry draw more young people and newcomers to the profession?

The security industry can draw more young people and newcomers to the profession by providing more attractive entry-level positions and internships, as well as offering educational opportunities for those interested in the field.

Additionally, the security industry can engage in active outreach to potential employees, such as attending professional conferences and job fairs or engaging in social media marketing. Furthermore, the industry should emphasize the diverse career paths and job growth potential available in the profession, as well as the opportunities to work on meaningful projects and develop valuable skills. I am part of the ASIS Toronto Chapter education committee and mentorship program as well as a part-time faculty member at Toronto Business College.
