Jobs in Henderson -- 4 Tips to Get You from Job-Seeker to Employee


If you're going to rent an apartment in Henderson, you need a job to go with it! Luckily, this area is home to a number of great career opportunities.

Even better, Henderson is a small enough city that your daily commute won't be a nightmare. Sure, you can rent an apartment that's close to the office, but if you fall in love with a place on the opposite side of town, it won't cost you much extra time in the morning.

Here are our 4 best tips for finding a job in Henderson that you absolutely love:


1. Get into the food biz

The Henderson area is Kentucky's third-largest producer of corn and soybeans, and these opportunities don't even take into account other food-related jobs, like servers, hostesses, and cooks at the local restaurants.

If you'd like to work at a big chain restaurant, you'll be happy to learn that Henderson is home to Applebees, Shoney's, Golden Corral, Cracker Barrel, Denny's, Pizza Hut, and a wide variety of fast food restaurants.

There are also plenty of popular locally-owned restaurants where you can work -- including Commonwealth Kitchen + Bar, Rockhouse at Wolf's, Thomason's Barbecue, and Cancun Mexican Restaurant.


2. Team up with the city

According to the 2008 Census, a whopping 12% of the Henderson job force worked for the government. That doesn't mean that you have to spend all of your time sitting behind a computer, though. The City of Henderson employs a wide variety of people -- from communications professionals to bus drivers, to lifeguards, to utility employees, to engineers.


3. Make your way in manufacturing

Manufacturing is big business in Henderson. Employers here produce everything from aluminum, to auto parts, to appliance parts, to beauty products, to electronics, to plastic injectors and other molds, to tools.

This industry won't be slowing down anytime soon. Just since 2014, manufacturing companies have invested more than $100 million to either build new facilities in the area or expand their existing facilities. The money also enabled them to create more than 700 new jobs.

And there's one more opportunity here -- truck drivers and haulers. After all, everything that gets manufactured here has to be transported all over the country!


4. Earn money in education

There are nearly a dozen public schools in Henderson, along with public preschools, alternative schools, and parochial schools. If you're more interested in higher education, you can apply for a job at Henderson Community College or Murray State University's satellite campus. There are also three colleges in Evansville if you're willing to take on a longer commute.
