If you live in the Portland, Oregon area and want a green job, plan to attend the Green Jobs Fair on March 27 at the 2009 Energy Trust Better Living Show.  Despite the shaky economy, green jobs are available and they are available now.  CleanEdge is sponsoring the four-hour Green Jobs Fair at the Portland Expo Center.

“The Better Living Show Jobs Fair features employers who are concerned about more than the bottom line; companies that care about the environment, and their communities; companies that want to make a difference.
Job seekers, high school and college students: Come and meet companies that are hiring for sustainable careers. Learn about upcoming opportunities in sustainable industries, and which skills employers are seeking. Learn how clean technology can fuel the next generation of green jobs.” Source: Better Living Show

For more information, read the official Green Jobs Fair press release (PDF).

After the job fair is over, stick around and visit the Energy Trust Good Energy House, take your kids to a Planet Kids presentation or have a tasty adult beverage at The EcoTini Lounge.  There is no admission fee for the event but parking is $7 per vehicle with a $1 discount for three+ person carpools.
