New on the Mac's List Blog


Employers tell us they often look first to a LinkedIn profile when considering a job candidate. Guest blogger Mara Woloshin kicks offs a four-part series with three tips on how you can improve your LinkedIn page.


How can you connect with other professionals in your field? Editor Jessica Williams describes five ways volunteering can help your Portland job search.


We all have to keep our job skills sharp to remain competitive in today's workplace. Here at Prichard Communications we rely on four Portland professional groups to learn the latest about communications and marketing.


Every Tuesday Intern Elizabeth Azevedo blogs about new jobs and employers on Mac's List.  We're proud that we added 24 new positions and eight first-time advertisers in last week's newsletter. Thank you to all our readers and customers!
