Homesick for KY?

From time-to-time, I get emails from homesick alums who want to return to Lexington or Kentucky. We sure love our mamas and our Wildcats. As for job search advice, here are some initial suggestions: attend UK homecoming weekend events (Offered in both the spring and fall); schedule vacation time through Lexington and make plans to meet with targeted employers, friends, family etc. letting them know about your areas of expertise, skills, and interests in returning; utilize keyword searches on LinkedIn and job boards etc. (i.e. indeed.com, simplyhired.com); read local business publications (I.e. Lane Report, Herald-Leader, Business Lexington). What are some tips from others have successfully relocated back to Kentucky?
