DENVER (CBS4) – Businesses ordered to close their doors in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic are turning to private security firms to make sure buildings and inventory remain safe and secure, even when nobody is there. It’s also a time for many in search of employment to hone their job searching skills.

Rick Buchholz, Director of Recruiting-Southwest Region for Allied Universal says added demand has them hiring thousands of positions across the nation with more than 50 of those jobs available across the Front Range.

“Don’t just look at this as a job. You might come in thinking that you might want to do this temporarily and we’re hoping that you’re going to come on board and find that this is a great company with great growth and future and great opportunities for advancement and take advantage of that career path and make a career in our industry,” said Buchholz.
