Indeed.com contains a search tool that allows you to specify a city and state or ZIP in which you wish to conduct your search as well as a job type option that allows you to describe the specific nature of the security job you want. Results appear with the title of the job, the company offering it and a description of its duties.

Monster.com also allows you to search for jobs in an area, offering tools to narrow results according to city, state, job title or company. After creating an account with the site, you may upload a copy of your resume and submit it directly to the employer for consideration.

Craigslist.org does not offer a national site, instead requiring you to choose a state and then a major city or county within it to view listings. Security guard jobs may appear under the Jobs section, which features full-time and part-time opportunities, or the Gigs section, which is typically for short term or seasonal work.

Many major security companies offer tools to view job listings within a specific city, allowing you to focus on your area to locate open jobs.
