The City of Portland is postponing its Workforce Diversity Job Fair due to the next winter storm slated to arrive Wednesday evening. The job fair, originally slated for February 15, is to help increase the diversity of the City's workforce. It will now be held on Tuesday, March 7 from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM at Merrill Rehearsal Hall, 20 Myrtle Street in Portland. Attendees can learn about current job opportunities as well as meet representatives from every department, even those without current openings.
“One of my top goals as city manager is to increase the level of diversity within our workforce so that we better reflect the community we serve,” said City Manager Jon Jennings. “I hope that job seekers will attend so that they can learn about the variety of employment opportunities that we offer. This job fair is just one way in which we’re working to achieve a more diverse workforce, we’re also in the midst of hiring a new workforce diversity and inclusion specialist.”
