HeadHunters NW Announces Weekly Meetings for Outdoor Industry Career Planing

HeadHunters NW, the premier executive recruiting firm focused exclusively and deliberately on talent acquisition for the shooting, hunting, and outdoor industry, announces it will host weekly live meetings to provide resources for those who work in the firearms industry. Weekly HeadHunters NW, Career Planning sessions, are scheduled for Wednesdays, and HeadHunters NW President Shaylene Keiner will host each interactive 30-minute Zoom session.

“Preparing people for success is an integral part of executive recruiting,” said Keiner. “And this weekly forum feeds into my mission of giving back. Many have questions about advancing their careers in the outdoor industry, and we have the experience and resources to help them.”

“Indicators point toward an economic slowdown, contributing to people experiencing uncertainty about their employment. We want folks to feel empowered and give them a comfortable place to ask questions and learn how to take positive career steps,” said Keiner. “It’s okay to feel tentative about your future when your job outlook is in question. It’s normal. Unfortunately, people with these worries often feel alone and helpless.”

According to Oscar Claveria, “Global economic uncertainty and suicide: Worldwide evidence.” Social Science & Medicine, (8, 2022, December), “Economic uncertainty is a driver of the business cycle. Its leading properties make it a key advanced indicator to assess the impact of socioeconomic factors on suicide for prevention purposes. Overall, the analysis suggests that increases in lagged economic uncertainty, as well as in unemployment and economic growth, may lead to an increased risk of suicide.”

“I am committed to the premise that gun owners care,” said Keiner. “I am eager to share my decades of experience recruiting with people looking at pink slips, downsizing, or reorganization. Now is the time to prepare for career changes, and we have insight into what employers in the shooting, hunting, and outdoor industry are looking for. We want to see you succeed and will share our knowledge. You are not alone,” she added.
