About Portland Jobs

When searching online for Portland jobs, you will need to check the link back to the company and then do a search online to determine that the company is real, and they are hiring. Keep in mind, you should never have to pay to work at a job.

How to Search for Jobs

There are three ways that you can search for Portland jobs; create your own search, search through online job boards, or go through job staffing agencies.

To create your own search for a job, use Google to find companies that reside within Portland. Your list will probably come back with any and all businesses from coffee houses to warehouses. Go through the list and when you find a business that may be interesting to you, write their name and address down along with the phone number so you can call them. Once you have a list of ten, start contacting them to inquire about any available positions, schedule interviews, and follow up with emails.

Online Resources

To search for a job online, you can visit some of the most popular job board online such as www.glassdoor.com, www.indeed.com, or www.simplyhired.com . Once you are on these sites, you will be able to customize your job search by location or job title to ensure that you are applying for jobs that you are qualified for and not jobs that you are not interested in.

To find a job through a staffing agency, you can go online to find all the staffing agencies and temp agencies in the Portland area. Find the contact number for each agency and then call them to see what is available or look to see if they have a website that you can log onto and view the jobs that are available on their job board.
