Very professional work. Very knowledgeable. Fast worker (important when charging by the hour). She did not get upset about answering questions - unusual in an electrician. Gave different options at different prices and clearly explained reasons for each. Call Dolores Doyle - she did a great job and saved us money by explaining how we would not be happy with what we *thought* we wanted. She wanted us to be happy with the job and we are very happy. We may not need an electrician very often, but I know exactly who to call when we do.
This is a specialized staffing agency. It serves the Manufacturing, Construction, Heavy Industrial and High-Tech industries. This is skilled labor ? not the unskilled day labor that other places have. If you are a carpenter, construction laborer, machinist, maintenance, electrician, and welder, HVAC or any other Tradesman ? this is the staffing service for you. They have a lot of temp-to-hire positions or long term temporary in addition to the more traditional short-term temp jobs.
DePaul works only with people who have a disability - now don't stop reading just yet. Many people have a disability without realizing it. Many things might qualify ? learning problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, and injury. They offer several different levels of service, in several areas from Food and Consumer Goods Packaging & security services, to temp-to-hire staffing services.
Ms Lind is a private career counselor. She offers a range of services from resume writing to a Job Club to individual career planning. She also works with those who have or want their own business. If nothing else check her website for a very comprehensive (one of the best I have seen) list of resources for job leads. Her book - Finding a Job Worth Having: A Handbook for Creatives and Idealists ? is available for sale through her website.
Like the employment office - the newspaper is today only one of many sources for job leads. It certainly should not be ignored, but neither should it be the only place you look. The Oregonian does a better than average job of organizing it's employment ads. It also offers the companion online listings at www.oregonlive.com. Be aware that searching the online ads can often overlook some openings in which you would otherwise be interested.
In days gone by, the employment office was the first place to go when actively seeking work. You registered with them, met with a counselor and they contacted you to refer to an interview. Times change. These days you access the job listings online. Rarely do they contact you to send you out on an interview. No more the weekly appointments with your personal counselor. While they still have some of the best job leads, there are so many other options today this no longer the only game in town, nor the best. It is simply one of many places to check.
Like neighborhood schools of the past, Chehalem is truly a valuable part of the community. It has something going on every week. It has a small sports field that I see people at all the time on the weekends. Even though everyone has busy lives, Chehalem also encourages parent participation. Many of the parents are involved in some way.
I was very surprised the first time I went here. I saw a mother daughter pair getting their hair done. Typically hair salons can do either style well, but not both. Not so with this place. They can make both happy. It costs a bit more, but it is not the most expensive shop in town. I had a perm and was very happy with it.
The folks at work head there every morning to grab a coffee and often a sweet roll, coffee cake, etc. I have never heard any one say they did not like it - even though we all have very different tastes. It?s a small local place, but worth the stop if you are in the area.
I met our landscaper there to select plants for the current project. This is not a garden center, but a wholesale working nursery. They have a good selection of plants. All of the plants appeared to be disease free and well cared for. If you go remember to wear shoes for traipsing around in the mud and guck.
