This week, Portland’s dark winter took a brief vacation. I dusted off my sunglasses and went for long walks on our waterfront, over our bridges, in our neighborhoods, and in the parks. Portland is beautiful and when the sun shines a spotlight on this town, we truly remember how lucky we are.
Here are the eight jobs on Mac’s List that will get you closer to the light, out in nature, and working to support the environment.
1. McMenamins Copy Writer/Editor/Social Media Content Administrator. Stop reading this and apply right now. Deadline for this job closes tomorrow, March 10th. Why did this job make the list? Because it’s in Edgefield, close to the Columbia Gorge! If I worked there, I’d go on a hike during lunch or walk the beautiful grounds every day.
2. Director of Marketing and Communications at the College of Forestry at Oregon State University. A world-class center for education on forests and related resources, you’re sure to have access to nature in this job or at least to help her thrive.
