Hello! Thank you for visiting EP Job Search website.
EP Job Search is part of the International Security Driver Association (ISDA). ISDA and its members, as a way of paying it forward, offer tools and services for those interested in obtaining a job or starting a career in the Executive Protection/Security profession totally free. The website is more than just a job listings website. As the website continues to grow, we will be adding new features and tools. We will continue to share advice, job trends, career information, and how to market you and your services.
The easiest way to explain EP Job Search is to explain what we don’t do:
We don’t project a rose-colored picture of this profession. We offer you assistance in reaching your personal and professional goals. We present an outline of the job market based on in-house data and research. We believe you are your own best asset.
We don’t hold your hand. We won’t answer the most commonly asked question on social media platforms, “Are there any jobs in ______?” EPJS wants you to be able to answer these questions for yourself and offers you tools to enable you to do so.
We don’t password protect our curated job feeds. We don’t charge membership or user fees.
Here are some of features and services EPJS has to offer:
A curated job opportunities board
Our job board is targeted to the security and executive protection professions and is fueled by Indeed and ZipRecruiter, two of the most subscribed to and respected job and employment services in the world. If you have been relying on others to find you work, you are behind the job curve; be proactive.
If you are looking for a job, whether it’s to get your foot in the door, or taking your career to the next level, the only person who can find the right job for you, is you. Better than anyone, you understand your experience level and skill set, your desired niche, market, and location, and most importantly, the position you want and the companies you hope to work with.
A public resume directory
Once you set up your free account, upload your bio, experience, and resume. Your qualifications will be public, enabling job seekers to contact you if they think you are the right fit for their company.
A frank discussion on the general state of the protection industry
Who is doing what, and where? What qualifications do employers and hiring managers look for? What skills are most sought after? What are the needs of the industry? EPJS has done the research and can help you answer these questions on your own time. EPJS is more than just a job board, it provides you with tools and resources to help you find work. Straight talk, no fees.
Word of Mouth (WOM) Marketing
No matter what aspect of the business you are in, whether you mean to or not, you are generating WOM marketing. Whether you want to or not, either knowingly or unknowingly, you generate word of mouth that is either positive, which helps build a career or business or has a negative effect. Word of mouth is the most powerful form of marketing out there. You and your company can learn how to harness this method of marketing to suit your needs.
We emphasize the importance of developing an effective marketing program. The “If you train them, they will come,” philosophy does not work. You must market to survive.
Your website and social media profiles are the new resumes. Over 80% of all recruiters “Google” their applicants, and 43% of them will discard an applicant if they don’t like what they see. If your website suffers, you suffer.
Social Media Marketing
Social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, continue to grow in popularity. Nearly everyone you interact with has a Facebook account, allowing them to reconnect with friends and family, and share their thoughts, opinions, and pictures with their followers.
Like any other business, you have to stand out and market yourself to get business.
The newsletter focus will be sharing advice, career information, job trends, and much more. Be one of the first to sign up for the next email newsletter.
