New on the Mac's List Blog

This year our team has launched a new holiday tradition. We're excited to host a book drive for The Children's Book Bank, a local nonprofit that collects and distributes books to families in low-income neighborhoods throughout the Portland metro area and we invite you to join us.


Public involvement is an important Oregon value, so we're not surprised as Elizabeth Azevedo writes this week in her post on new employers and jobs that the Oregon Zoo is having a contest to name elephant Rose-Tu's new calf.


Elizabeth wraps up her internship with us next week and tells us about what she has learned as she researches taking a gap year.


Unemployment rates for Oregon women over age 50 remain high. Laura Schlafly says nonprofits offer an opportunity for those considering switching fields.


What does it take to find a rewarding job in Portland? Jessica Williams shares the lessons she learned.


Twitter is an important job search tool.  Here are five local Twitter accounts I recommend to those looking for work in Oregon.


Mike Russell finishes his four-part series on how to write a bio for finding a job in Portland.
