Benefits to Employers

Cascade Job Fair

The Cascade Job Fair brings hundreds of local employers together in the same room.

“This is the Best Job Fair in the City of Portland” enthusiastically reflects Mark Curnell from Oregon/Idaho AAA Human Resources. He continues “for a number of reasons; the support staff is outstanding, there is a high applicant flow, the publicity, and it is well advertised in fact the promotion of the event is superb.”

The same comments are echoed by the majority of employers who attend the event annually.
