The Portland Shop Symposium isn’t a job fair or job panel but these are definitely the kinds of people to network with and learn from. This is especially true if you can provide services that local retailers and entrepreneurs are looking for (sales jobs, creative jobs, service jobs).
From Shop Symposium:
35 Local Business Leaders Join to Educate Business Owners
Second Annual SHOP Symposium for Portland Retailers and Entrepreneurs
Tickets are still available to the second annual SHOP Symposium, a one-day conference for small business owners and entrepreneurs looking to draw an edge in what may seem an over-saturated market. Like last year’s selling-out SHOP/08 (touted as “fabulous”, “uplifting” and having “contagious energy”), Portland’s unique SHOP Symposium is a forum fit to educate and equip Portland’s business-minded individuals, with 35 leaders in the Portland business community speaking on panel, adding to a lively, educationally rich dialogue followed by an audience-approved Q & A.

In these economic times, many people are discovering that using social media tools can be highly valuable to network, research, and find career opportunities.
A few months back, I started a twitter account (@pdxjobs) to syndicate good & interesting jobs I found across the net. 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.
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
