Security TitleThey protect presidents and pre-schoolers; prevent cyber and terrorist attacks. And take preventive measures to protect the homeland. They are all specialists in one way or another … trained in several security positions, protecting people, companies and country. Amazingly, the range of jobs in the field is quite extraordinary.

These individuals patrol casino properties and ensure the safety of both guests and employees. It is likely they also look for card cheaters. Like all security personnel, they respond to emergencies as needed, and notify local police officers when backup is necessary.

Generally casinos look for individuals with law enforcement background, cops, or individuals with industrial security backgrounds (guards). The highest salaries are usually found at Las Vegas casinos.

49. Retail Store Detective

These security agents are responsible for the apprehension and prosecution of shoplifters and the prevention of theft. Not a uniformed security guard or watchman. The field is larger than you might think. Almost every major department stores, not just chains, hire undercover agents to walk through stores and watch for shoplifters.

Sometimes those agents sit behind the scenes and watch cameras located throughout the store, but whether they are watching screens or walking the floor, they save companies millions of dollars in theft.

Professional Blackjack by Stanford Wong.

This is currently the best blackjack book for learning how to play blackjack in my opinion. Even though it was originally written in the 1970's this is the one book that I always take with me on all of my gambling trips. It contains a basic strategy for single and multiple decks. There is, also, a powerful simple plus and minus strategy for card counting for single and multiple decks with differences for the dealer hitting soft 17 and standing on soft 17.
