With the upcoming G8 and G20 summits transforming Toronto into what some have called a domestic militarized zone, national and international media outlets have shone the spotlight on the increasing securitization of Canada's largest city.
And with security becoming such a focal point in current news coverage, I thought I'd share with you some of the summer job and career opportunities in the growing security industry - an industry where jobs are plentiful and can lead to rewarding careers in other related industries (e.g. policing).
Based on my recent search, I came up with a large number of security summer jobs and security officer jobs - more than 300 at last count.
Before deciding to apply, keep in mind that security guard jobs can be found throughout the Greater Toronto Area, even though the company's head office could be in the east or west end of Toronto. So on one hand, you could be travelling and commuting quite a bit - conversely, you could also have opportunities to work closer to home.
