Sometimes you'll find some good recruiters at your trade organization meetings. They are always looking to connect with good, qualified candidates so they need to be where you are. Think about it this way...they make money off placing you into a company. The more skilled and unique your qualifications are, the more they will want to work with you so that they can make money.

Or why not do a little self marketing on your own? Most of the 'good' jobs in the market are the positions you don't hear about. They are the positions that might be an impending vacancy or maybe one in which they are modifying the duties. Develop a target list of company’s you want to work for…then talk to your network of people (professional associations, neighbors, bankers, consultants, lawyers, colleges, doctors, etc) and find out who works at those companies, get the name of the manager, and send the manager a personal letter with your resume. Put in your letter that you will follow up on XX day and at YY time and do it. Ideally, try to connect with the manager that can make the hiring decision.

Head Hunters are ok. They can work. Don't get your hopes up to much when you have a few phone conversations with them. A big part of thier job is to talk to ALOT of people every day. Wait until you get a formal interview with the perspective employer before you start getting excited about what a HH can do for you

I’ve been thinking about shopping my wife around in different markets a little.
She is the manager of a cardiac unit at a large hospital. Just now starting back for her masters. But she was sad to leave vacation and I think she would be happier living on the water in NC or some place south of PA..
And to be honest I think being a stay at home dad living on the water would be “ok“..

Trying to find your wife a better job?

I've found if you want to find the best job and are willing to move HH's are good. If you are looking for another job in the same area you live their value is limited.

She should have no trouble finding a postition. She could probably walk into the hospital and they would conduct an interview with her on the spot...

As I am in the endless job search, I have found that a lot of HeadHunters are not willing to really do anything for you if you are not living in the area that they have jobs in. Apparently, a lot of people have burned them by interviewing and getting jobs out of town and using it as leverage against their current company and leaving the recruiter holding the bag. I know that I have been getting a lot more action on my resume since putting Atlanta on it vs. Macon. Employers don't want to pay for the re-lo anymore.

The medical field could be different and as mentioned before, specialized abilities will help to off set the non local issue.

put in a quick call to the producers of the brady bunch or gilligans island... They always found head hunters on those shows.

TRU DAT! I have been burned as the employer on similar type gigs. You are correct, employers are much more leary of these things and relocating people that are new to the organization is a bit of a gamble.

Being your wife is in the healthcare biz she shouldn't have much of a problem finding a good position anywhere she goes.

I’m not really a big fan of head hunters but being that she would be looking for a director position out of town I thought the first thing to do would be to talk to a few head hunters and get a feel for what they could offer.

P-Daddy are you looking for like salary ranges and benefits packages or areas where they have open positions?

MarkP

I think both would be important.
Obviously an organization in need of personnel with her particular area of expertise would be Ideal/necessary. So a parallel move, until she completes her masters is about what we could expect

Mark; If you know where you want to live then do the searching yourself. I don't believe there are any posting that headhunters have that you will not see either on the company "career's" section, the local paper, or hundredkjobs.com.

On a TJ, the site just changed dramatically and to the positive!

Move to Texas. Real estate is cheap. Lots of lakes. Some even have water in them. Which ones is a secret.
