Dear Fellow Executive Protection Specialist:
I am writing to invite you to submit any interesting “on the job” tales you’d like to share.
True Bodyguard Stories is a new area of the Bodyguard Careers website. I am not interested in gossip, or any “confessional” type material. Rather, the primary focus of the story should be about a “close call” or other situation in which you found yourself needing to use the best of your bodyguarding skills or some situation in which you learned a valuable lesson about the executive protection business.
My hope is to educate new people looking to break into this line of work on some of the inherent dangers and challenges. It is not all as glamorous as people would like to believe. (See the Article “Working in a Celebrity’s Universe: It Won’t Make You a Star”)
A few IMPORTANT guidelines:
â€¢Â Nothing of a salacious or vicious nature about a celebrity or executive with
whom you were/are employed
â€¢Â Names may be omitted if you prefer, for example: My employer, “MR. X”
â€¢Â If you would prefer to tell your story and have my writing associate transcribe it
for you, contact us to arrange for a telephone interview
I have already been sent some interesting stories in response to our recent posting Executive Protection: Risky Business. Have an interesting story that fits the criteria and guidelines? Please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, please note that if you submit a story, our editor will go through to correct grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors. Submitting a story does not guarantee it will be posted. We reserve the right to reject any story that does not fall within the above guidelines. We will give you full credit for the story, and as a thank you, add a link to your website.
Watch soon for the first story in the series “True Bodyguard Stories.”
