Last I checked Portland had a lot of smaller, pretty dang creative shops. Am I wrong?

Nice! I have the same amount of experience. I want to love to PDX eventually as well, maybe in the next 2 years or so.

There are a LOT of small agencies. You need to get some contacts there. jobs are rarely posted. also has some good recruiting firms. I got a full time job through one when I moved there. Should also say most work is in sneakers (Nike or Adidas)

I know of several open positions - PM me at s.towers@bolywelch.com

Besides my PR work I am also a talent scout and I know of several opportunities here DOE. Contact me if you would be open to a conversation.

I'm curious too. I'm in pharmaceutical advertising working for NYC agency but live in Portland. I am curious if I will ever get to see anyone in person ever again haha. I am permanently remote unless I want to move to creative agency.

Is it over reacting to tell her after she gets back we’re going to have her stay home for the week? We’ll still pay her of course since it’s our choice. But I’m not crazy right?
