PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland Community College is hosting the Multicultural Job Fair for bilingual and limited English speakers from noon to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 25 at the Capital Career Center, 18624 N.W. Walker Rd.
This event provides an opportunity to connect bilingual and limited English speaking job seekers from all over the Portland Metro area with interested employers. The fair is open to the public and free for jobseekers. Parking is also free.
The fair targets employers who desire applicants that have additional language skills and need to get connected with job seekers with a wide range of skills. For job seekers, the fair is a good option to use their second language skills to find a job. It’s also an opportunity for them to talk with employers face-to-face and learn more about job opportunities that are available now.
This event will highlight opportunities with multiple employers like Farmers Insurance, Platt Electric, Comcast, Department of Human Services, Aramark Uniform Services, Wells Fargo, DePaul Industries, Washington County, Albertina Kerr Centers, and TriMet. This event is co-hosted by WorkSource
Capital Career Center and WorkSource Oregon Employment Department.
