While September traditionally brings the end of summer activities, it could be the start of a new career opportunity with the Postal Service. Anyone in need of a job, including a seasonal position, is encouraged to attend one of the many job fairs being held in September, including the Hillsboro Post Office which has an event scheduled every Tuesday this month.

The Postal Service’s ongoing goal is to fill hundreds of positions throughout Oregon. While the need is especially urgent for mail carriers, clerks, and mail handlers, interested applicants should always check with their local Post Office for information on available positions.

A postal job offers employees the ability to work where they live, good pay, stability, lifelong benefits and career advancement opportunities throughout the entire agency.

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