​Mac’s List and Portland Business Alliance join forces to promote local jobs

Portland, Ore. – The Portland Business Alliance, the voice of business in the Portland metropolitan area, and Mac’s List, Oregon’s best online source for meaningful employment, announced a new partnership today. The collaboration will help local enterprises recruit the best talent.
 
Under the agreement, Mac’s List becomes the exclusive job board for the Portland Business Alliance. All job announcements will appear both on the Portland Business Alliance website at portlandalliance.com and on MacList.org, ensuring they reach an audience of over 80,000 monthly job seekers.
 
“Since 2001, Mac’s List has been dedicated to strengthening our community by connecting skilled professionals to the best jobs in Portland,” said Mac Prichard, founder and publisher of Mac’s List. “We’re excited to partner with the Portland Business Alliance and its members to showcase new job openings in our growing local economy.”
 
According to the State of Oregon Employment Department, the Portland metro area is one of the fastest growing economies in the nation. With local unemployment near record lows, however, employers are finding it increasingly difficult to find the right talent for their businesses.
 
“An important part of the Alliance’s mission is to promote and foster an environment in the Portland region that promotes and retains private-sector jobs. That includes attracting and growing strong talent to fill those roles,” said David Thompson, chief operating officer at the Portland Business Alliance. “The Alliance’s partnership with Mac’s List will be one more way to help great talent and local employers find each other.”
 
Each year, over 2,500 organizations in Oregon and southwest Washington trust Mac’s List to find candidates for their most mission-critical hires. With a Portland-based audience, growing readership, and reputation as a trusted job search resource, Mac’s List is the ideal platform for Portland-area employers to find the talent they need.
