New on the Mac's List Blog

Can't wait for "Portlandia" season three? Elizabeth Azevedo writes about "Vancouvria," a "Portlandia" spoof, in a post about new jobs and employers on Mac's List.


Elizabeth also blogs about the lessons she draws from the experience of a recent college graduate who landed her dream job .


Jessica Williams continues her series about personal branding and job-hunting. This week Jessica talks about how to create a persuasive professional biography.


Retirees make up the second largest group of new arrivals in Portland. Guest blogger, Laura Schlafly gives advice about how to conduct an Oregon job search after age 50.


As the economy grows, more people move here from other states. Whatever their age, I have four tips for newcomers to Oregon to help with a job search and career growth.


Mara Woloshin offers up her advice about two online resume tools to help your local job search in Portland.
