Portland's a small city. Word gets around, and you know what they say-first impressions last a lifetime. If you're planning to move here, you want to hit the ground with your best foot forward. We asked four creative professionals what they learned from the relocating process, and they offered up the sort of wisdom that, taken to heart, could make you the talk of the town.



"Relocate to Portland With Gusto and Panache, Like These Folks"


As Managing Director, Ben will lead our efforts to better serve you, the Mac's List community, as well as oversee our daily operations, online communications and community relations, and the Mac's List team of Cecilia Bianco and Anneka Winters. He brings to the job a passion for community service and more than a decade of experience in nonprofit communications and marketing, primarily in the nonprofit and healthcare sectors.

Artists Repertory Theatre is hiring a Community Engagement Specialist! Artists Repertory Theatre is Portland's longest-running professional theatre company and "feeds our community's artistic soul with world, regional and local premieres, re-imagined classics, new play development, and play-specific education and outreach!"

Your resume is often the first impression you make with a prospective employer; it is an at-a-glance professional snapshot that shows you've got the skills for the job. However, among human resources professionals it is commonly held that at least 85 percent of all resumes "suck." That's right... 85 percent of resumes are liabilities that don't present the job seeker as a skilled or qualified candidate.
