Career Resources for Nonprofit, Government, and Education

“I selected Vicki as a career counselor because she blends the practical with the idealistic.”
Portland/Metro Area: General
- www.cnrg-portland.org. CNRG is an excellent resource for nonprofit job seekers. Subscribers to this listserv receive daily notification by e-mail of job openings, classes, events and other issues of interest to people seeking alternative careers.
- portland.craigslist.org. A large proportion of jobs posted elsewhere show up on Craigslist within a few days. However, it is frustrating that many jobs do not identify the employer.
- www.indeed.com. Indeed seems to review and compile listings from other major traditional job sites, like Monster.com. I recommend trying it for a few weeks and seeing if you can save time by dropping Jobdango, Monster, etc.
- meetgoodwill.org/job-connection/ Goodwill Job Connection has many free resources and skill building opportunities for job seekers in Portland.
- hatchthefuture.org Hatch is a co-working space for social and environmental entrepreneurs with a community of experts dedicated to helping you "hatch your next big idea."
- www.nonprofitoregon.org The Nonprofit Association of Oregon (formerly TACS) provides networking opportunities, training, and in-depth support to nonprofit leaders and job seekers.
