Long story short, we are seriously looking (again) at moving to Portland. Dh works in IT and so we've been looking around for possible jobs for him. We already know of AMD, HP and Intel. Google says they have offices in PDX but when you click on that link, all you get are listings for The Dalles.
What other companies are in/around PDX that might be worth checking into? TIA!

Well, if you are looking in the surrounding area as well as Portland, Wilsonville (outlying suburb to the south) is home to Xerox, Mentor Graphics, and InFocus...

Oh Paisley, you BEST get your sexy pregnant butt up here!!!
How cool would that be??

In addition to the tech companies, there are also LOTS of IT opportunities at all kinds of smaller companies around here. portland.craigslist.org has a bunch listed usually (how DP found PacStar, where he currently works).

My guy works for the corporate office of goodwill, in the it dept, and I know that they are looking for another guy there, as well as Jack used to work for a great head hunter who has been able to find him good contracts and some perm positions, would you be willing to move if he had a contract? And when you say IT what exactly does he do? If its programing or dba work maybe we could help you finding something. Anyway, pm for the headhunters info if your interested!
