― Ryan Erwin, General Manager of Marksman Security Corporation and Former Assistant Chief of Police

"I've worked with thousands of people during their career transitions, including many military veterans and law enforcement officers. When they ask how to get ahead in their corporate job search, my most important advice is always to talk to an expert in the field. So, You Want to Get into Corporate Security? offers an insider's point of view with a wealth of resources for professionals at any job level who want to work in the world of corporate security."

― Scott Vedder, Fortune 100 Recruiter and Bestselling Author of Signs of a Great Résumé and Signs of a Great Interview

"Although I have some background in Executive Protection, so much has changed in the corporate world since I left it 23 years ago... Transitioning from an environment of rigid rules and regulations (like in the military, a fire department, or police department) into today's corporate world is daunting to say the least. As I enter the last five years of my government career and am considering my options, I now have a clear picture of what it will look like if I choose to go down the corporate security path."

― Drew Whyte, Firefighter/Paramedic, Arson Investigator, former Executive Protection agent (RST)

"Having interviewed hundreds of professionals transitioning from the military or government sector, I have found that while they are all highly capable, they have limited operational knowledge in many areas, much like private security professionals would if they were entering government service. Carlos hits many points that will ease the transition from public to private and help demystify the corporate security world. If you truly want to 'get into security, ' then this is a great starting point!"

― John Lineweaver, Regional Data Center Security Manager

"In the year prior to my retirement as Division Chief from a large Sheriff's Office, I began the process of preparing for the next step in my career, which initially was to be a police chief... There were several resources available from the Chiefs of Police Association and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) but nothing was readily available for diving into the private sector. So, You Want to Get into Corporate Security? offers practical nuggets of advice for anyone coming from government to the private sector, which is an entirely different world."

― Rickey Ricks, retired Division Chief with the Orange County Sheriff's Office and retired Security Area Manager with Walt Disney World Parks & Resorts
