PSA: Portland Jobs, Portland Twitter, Portland Creatives, Portland Tech

Posted By Julian Chadwick

As we know, Portland's unemployment rate is growing & it is becoming much harder to find good jobs.

A few months back, I started a  Twitter Logo twitter account (@pdxjobs) to syndicate good & interesting jobs I found across the nets. Luckily, we live a great community here in Portland and many people have helped. From the beginning, other PDXers were sending me jobs to post. KGW even had me/@pdxjobs on “Live at 7″ to help people find jobs.

If you are on twitter, I hope @PDXJobs helps you. Also, send me jobs you find, retweet it & use #pdxjobs hash-tag so others can follow jobs across the search timeline.

Update: Have the beginings of a Website up as well: PortlandTwitterJobs.com

Because jobs range a great deal, I created a few others that cater only to certain fields. They aren't quite running yet but, they will within a week so follow them if you are looking for jobs in these fields
