Security Jobs Call Military Vets Into Action





Over one million service members returning to the U.S. over the next five years

CGI to hire as many as 200 military vets by 2013; Positions include guards, field supervisors, dispatch & more


US military veterans and soldiers returning stateside after completing their service are being called into action. National security firm Crescent Guardian, Inc., is leading a new charge to employ as many veterans as possible and is challenging other businesses to join them.

CGI is pushing
to have companies hire as many veterans as possible by the end of 2012. The campaign's goal is to help ex-soldiers quickly find jobs they are good at, transition more easily back to civilian life and provide clients with top-notch security personnel.

Crescent Guardian, which partnered with national non-profit organization HIRE HEROES USA to connect veterans with work, has set a goal of hiring as many as 200 military veterans by the end of 2012. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported that the unemployment rate for veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time since September 2001 was 12.1% in 2011.

Military veterans returning from their final tours often have a difficult time readjusting to civilian life after experiencing the rigors of combat. Crescent Guardian is looking to bridge that gap by providing work that is essentially second nature to military veterans. With a new report from the U.S. Small Business Association stating that with combat operations beginning to wind down, over one million service members will be returning over the next five years, CGI believes companies are in a prime position to do a lot of good for the country.

“Military veterans make excellent guards. They already have great training, are disciplined, can handle pressure and clients love knowing veterans are protecting their assets,” said Marian Pierre, CEO of Crescent Guardian. “We want to help give them a way to constructively utilize their hard-fought experience.”

Interested military veterans can apply for a position with CGI by visiting here. Positions include armed/unarmed guards, field supervisors, dispatch and others. Veterans can also visit to see about work opportunities nationwide. CGI is challenging other businesses in the New Orleans area, and nationally, to participate in the campaign as well by signing up with HIRE HEROES USA and starting their own hiring initiative.

Crescent Guardian, Inc., which is a full service security integration firm headquartered in New Orleans, has served the federal, state, municipal, commercial, oil, pharmaceutical and critical infrastructure industries for over 19 years. The firm's professional portfolio includes: armed/unarmed guard services, security consulting, program management, IP video surveillance, RFID tracking, asset management, and video analytics.
