As the biggest city in Oregon, Portland is home to a variety of industries, even as it maintains its counterculture reputation. With roughly 60% of Oregon’s overall population residing in Portland’s greater metropolitan area, the City of Roses offers an abundance of professionals, which leads to a deep recruiting pool for local companies.
Waypoint’s reach extends to the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Depending on a company’s needs, we can fill positions with experienced candidates, or pull from an ever-growing pool of graduates from local higher education institutions like Portland State University and Portland Community College. Also, if you’re a candidate seeking placement within Portland, we’d love to help.
