Job Hunting in the Northwest

Here are a few sites with job listings for the Northwest - specifically, jobs in Washington, 
Oregon and California.  Craigslist is great, of course, but not all employers post their jobs 
there.  If you are looking for a job in more than one area you can use Site Mash .  It is 
supposed to list entries for craigslists nationwide though it is not 100% complete.  You 
enter the type of job you want into the blank, e.g. writer, and then it will pull listings from 
all (or most) Craigslists.

One of the best sites for Seattle jobs is the Kings County job site  and if you are looking 
throughout Washington you can find state listings here

Here’s the City of Portland’s job listings .  The State of Oregon lists their openings here
and you can also check out Multnomah County’s listings.

Of Oregon, Washington and California, California has the most cumbersome job site.  Many 
of the jobs listed are only available to people who have already taken an exam in that job’s 
category.  But if you want to give it a try, it’s located here .  

This site  lists many California government entities and also lists sites for many cities and 
counties in California.

I really don’t need more job hunting competition but I can’t help but feel empathy for those 
of you who are, like me,  out there looking for work and not finding it.  Best of luck to you.
