Your Professional Executive Recruiter

Office Conference


Healthcare, Bioscience, and BioPharma


Second Act Careers, health care division is consistently one of the top direct hire healthcare, and advanced practice search consulting and recruitment firm in country. We identify, recruit, and place exceptional talent for leading healthcare organizations nationwide.

Engineering, Mechatronics, Maintenance and Manufacturing

Every company has to have a plan, a path, or some grand idea that the leadership team follows in order to ensure that growth continues and the company’s culture is embraced. As we continued to grow in these up and down economic times, Second Act Career found itself at a crossroad and had to ask ourselves, “Where are we going?”  We won’t change that we have an Engineering and manufacturing division and that we will have a separate Healthcare side to our business but we will niche them into two separate groups.

“We won’t abandon the manufacturing and supply chain sector.”

As it seems, many boutique search firms and executive recruiters jump on whatever sector is hot in order to maximize their revenue streams. As a business-focused company, we understand that at the end of the day it’s about the business making money and reaching its goals.

But we took a different approach.

We didn’t want to hop on the flavor of the week or a bandwagon of what is hot right now, today. As we began our journey in manufacturing and engineering, its who we are and what works. So, we hunkered down and continued to build our networks composed of manufacturing executives, manufacturing engineers, supply chain professionals and manufacturing technology professionals with experience in SAP, QAD, Plex, Industrial Automation, and beyond.

Here to stay.

Second Act Careers will continue to be the one true believer in manufacturing, and engineering right here in the USA and as we continue our growth globally, we plan to remain the #1 Manufacturing Executive Search Firm in North America.
