Question by Bob Marley: Job market in portland, Oregon?
How is the job market in Portland Oregon? I am graduating from ASU with a bachelors in Liberal Studies and I plan on going to Portland State University for a master. Me and my fiance will need to find jobs. I am wondering if you guys have any reccomendations. And if the jobs are flowing decently.
Answer by Marlo
I am a student at Portland State…and let me be the first to tell you the job market here is one of the worst in the country. Portland is a great city full of unemployed people. The unemployment rate is over 12% right now, and at every job interview I have gone to there were 15-20 other equally qualified people there. One coffee shop I frequent got over 300 applications for 2 open positions last month.
Good luck, you’ll need it.
