Teamwork is a common competency hiring managers look for, particularly for Security Officer roles, so include at least 1-2 examples of accomplishments that involved leading a team, or collaborating with others to complete a project.

Recruiters look for administrative skills on your Security Officer, so highlight your experience with key administrative functions, like organizing workshops or communicating with customers and employees.
