Employment agencies -- Oregon -- Directories, Economic development -- Social aspects, City planning -- Oregon -- Portland
This resource directory was produced for the Workforce Development Network (WDN) by a group of graduate students in the Urban and Regional Planning masters program at Portland State University. The project team consisted of Kim Burnett, Ray Jackson, Britt Parrott, Mat Ransom, and Claire Smith. The information for the directory was collected through interviews with service providers identified by WDN and the Workforce development Board.
The scope of the resource directory is limited to adult workforce development programs in Multnomah and Washington Counties and does not include temporary employment agencies or apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs due to time and resource constraints. These programs, as well as programs for youth, are important components of workforce development. Services in the region and we recommend that they be inventoried and analyzed in the future.
