Hey, was wondering if anyone had any idea of where I can find a headhunter in the Louisville area. I have had no luck, with any internet searches it seems like it is all temp services. I'm wanting a new career, I am college educated , but my field is dead end in every job you find. I have always been stumped when it came to finding other careers I might qualify for. I KNOW THE JOB MARKET IS ROUGH RIGHT NOW, SO NO COMMENTS ON THAT. Im still wanting to try and I need help finding my fullest potential. P.S. I do not want to leave the Louisville area, so it needs to be headhunters specializing in Louisville area. Please help ...

What do you have in mind?

LOL on the steelers fan , you must be a colts or bengals fan that seems to cover most of Louisville, I actually have been to 2 bengals games since I moved here. On the subject I really don't know for sure , thats why I was seeking the help of a headhunter. I currently work in the social services field, I don't want to name my title , or what I majored in because I am afraid of someone I work with figuring out (I know a little paranoid but my field is small and close knit) I'm thinking maybe some kinda sales , and I am not afraid to do a little labor either. I am just not seeing a good road in my field salary wise, my wife and I have been putting off kids and different decisions because of lack of money. It is the same where ever I look in this field.

My advice? Don't seek the hunter yet. I would take a course in free market economics. Odds are that as a social servant, you have no clue as to how supply and demand really works. Without a full and complete understanding, how do your know your worth or potential worth in any career field?

Once that is done, I would contact a career center that offers aptitude and attitude testing. If you are going to expect income whether it be a salary or commission, your employer will want the greatest value for their cost.

You can do it!

I agree with tomocox...and i think you'll need a better idea of what field you want to go into before trying to find a headhunter. maybe some of those temp jobs aren't such a bad thing since you don't seem to know what you want to do.

It may not be your cup of tea, but don't rule out a skilled trades apprenticeship. Look here for more: Untitled Document (http://www.glbctc.org/apprenticeship.html - broken link)
