Question by xendria18: Job hunting in Portland Metro, Oregon?
I am looking for a job in the Portland metro area that will not conflict with my wearing of the Muslim hijab (scarf), I would also like to be able to continue making aprroximately what I am now. If anyone knows of someone who is hiring it would be greatly appreciated.
A little about what I currently do. I am a manager of six video lottery delis in the in the Beaverton, Aloha area. I have 24 employees when fully staffed (four per location). I handle scheduling, payroll, light maintance, customer service, cash handling, paperwork, and general manager duties.
Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

I am sure there are a lot of job openings there such as telemerketing or office jobs where you don’t need to wear a uniform, so it shouldn’t conflict with your hijab. There are a lot of Muslims in Portland… I know my friend used to go to the church there… I don’t see why it would be a problem… plus if they don’t hire you for something your religion requires… then it’s technically descrimintation. Have you tried craigslist.org? there are a lot of jobs there or workinginoregon.com I’m sure since you have the skills someone will hire you 🙂 good luck.
