Web Links for Jobs in Oregon

As a follow-up to my earlier post about jobs in Oregon, I have taken the time to gather some useful job-seekers links specifically for Oregonians. It is definitely easier to land a job in Oregon if you alter your standards for employment. Not lower your standards, just alther them to give you the ability to find work in a field that you are qualified for. It may not be your dream job, but from what I understand - it takes a few years to get your feet planted in some of the smaller communities of Oregon. If you have the freedom, consider working at home by either starting a business of your own, or joining forces with one of the many companies that offer "telecommute" jobs.

Here I will focus on a few of the best job sources for "traditonal" employment, where you leave the house and go to your place of work. In a later post, I will put more emphasis on telecommuting jobs and some tips on starting your own business.

Craigslist - This is a link directly to their "Oregon" area selections, so choose the area closest to you to arrive on the main page for your area. They are in most states and many countries.
OregonLive - The Job Seekers page on the Oregonian newspaper for the Portland Metro area.
WorkSource Oregon - The state of Oregon's Employment Development Jobs Page.
Oregon Jobs - Search job listings for employment with the State of Oregon.
Jobdango - Northwest job seeker's site for both Washington and Oregon.
Sandy Post - Serving the Sandy and Mt Hood areas of Oregon.
Greenlight Classifieds - Advertising local jobs for Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington counties.
