Security jobs in your ZIP code
My first job was as a customer support agent and I got laid off from that job, due to the entire customer support division being out-sourced to India.
During the second time, it was a contract security guard position and the company I was working for was not able to get their contract renewed and hence they had to let us go.
Whenever this happened, a friend of mine allowed me to tend bar or bus tables at the restaurant he manages. This way I was able to pay my rent as well as not go into debt when I got laid off.
I didn’t put my bar tending jobs since it was not relevant to the security guard position I am applying. If you think it would help, I can add the details of the bar tending work I did during these gaps.
