How to find a security job in Texas?
There are two options: get a security guard or a carpenter.
The former could get you into the state’s largest private security company and the latter could earn you $18 an hour.
A carpenter is an apprentice who will do the work of a regular security guard.
Security guard jobs are available in Texas and most of the country.
In Texas, however, carpenters are a rare occupation.
Carpenters earn about $16 an hour, which is lower than security guards and $18 per hour, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Carpentry is often considered a high-paying profession.
Texas has more than 60,000 carpentors, but most of them earn just $14.20 an hour or less, according the Texas Bureau of Labor Statistics.
