High-tech is one of the fastest growing industries in Oregon, and the number of tech jobs is expected to grow by 20 percent over the next decade. Opportunities are abundant and the compensation is great, with median salaries nearly double the state average in all other industries.

To get one of these plum gigs, you need to have the right skills. Equally important, you need to have the right approach to your job search.

Join Mac’s List and the Technology Association of Oregon as we highlight avenues for starting and advancing your career in Oregon’s burgeoning tech scene.
