Throw in the (Beach) Towel on “Just Another” Summer Job; Apply for a Career Instead

USPS Letter Carrier scanning packages

Summer usually means a boring seasonal job. But change it up this year with the path toward an actual career!

The Postal Service is holding multiple job fairs in June throughout the state. Unlike slinging burgers, working concessions at the local theatre, or some other dead-end job, the Postal Service offers positions with good pay, stability, lifelong benefits and career advancement opportunities for anyone interested in a new job. 

We continue to look for energetic new employees with the goal to hire hundreds of Oregonians   within the next few months. The need is especially urgent for mail carriers, clerks, and mail handlers.

Anyone who needs a full or part-time job, a new career path, or is looking for a first-time job, please make plans to visit the upcoming job fairs:
