New on the Mac's List Blog


In today's workforce we may change careers - not just jobs - up to seven times. Social and Digital Media Intern Elizabeth Azevedo writes about a self-assessment tool she's using to think about her possible careers.


You our readers regularly send good tips about Portland networking events. Editor and Sales Director Jessica Williams tells us about four great groups you recommend. Keep those ideas coming!


Jessica, Lori, Elizabeth and I often meet people who come to Oregon without job.  A new Portland State University study - and articles in the Atlantic Cities blog and the Oregonian - describes the story of these newcomers.


I'm pleased to welcome Dorothy Tannahill-Moran, a Portland-based career coach, to our blog. She will write a twice-monthly advice column. Her first post: making the move from the military to the private sector.
