Hello all. I'm looking to move to Louisville for the summer of '09. I've been there several times so I have an okay understanding of getting around. I'm a sophmore in college and was just wondering if anyone knew of any places that typically do summer hirings? I love working outdoors but that's not an absolute must. I'm really just looking for 40 hours a week. Also I was wondering if anyone knew of any reasonably priced studio apartments? I'm a college kid so i'm on a budget. The highlands area would be awesome but i'm not sure if there is anything there in my price range.

I rented a lower end studio apartment in the Original Highlands (Barrett Ave area) for $365 and one in Old Louisville for $355. You can find a nice 1 bedroom for $425 anywhere in the Highlands if you look long enough.

Finding a job in the service sector here in this economy depends on your work experience. If you have a great resume you might get something. I have little work experience for my age and had to get a Nurse;s Aid certificate to find a job.

I strongly disagree with that....425 will get you a pretty run down place without a dishwasher that hasnt been updated since 1970. For newer, nicer stuff, you usually cant touch a one bedroom in the Highlands for less than 600 unless you get lucky. Still, that is very cheap. You get get a very high end, luxury apartment rental with wood floors, granite counter kitchens, and updated bathrooms with 2 bed and 2 baths for around 1000 in that area.

start at craigslist and work from there....

A lot of people hire landscapers and other yard maintenance people during the summer, i dont know if thats what you meant by outdoor, also, maybe try a nursery like Frank Otte. There's always Lowe's or Home Depot too.

I got a very large studio in Old Louisville that had much nicer furnishings that any house I've lived in for $425 counting all utilities and pet rent. It had a large fireplace with wood original wood detailings from 1897, exposed brick in the kitchen, stained glass windows in the bathroom

I am considering a move to Kentucky. I would like to find a headhunter for that particular area.
I am currently in the education field, have previous experience as a Director for a program which was funded w/both State and Federal funding. If there are any suggestions i would greatly appreciate them.

Also, which areas would you suggest for renting. I am single and don't need much space....but I do have a lab

Goldilocks,

Send me a private message with your email and I'll pass your email address on to my friend. He is a recruiter, but it is my understanding that he gets assignments to find people and he goes out and finds someone to fill that job, not the other way around. Though, he may indeed know of a position in your field.
