The Employment Department's mission is to promote the employment of Oregonians, through developing a diversified, multi-skilled workforce, promoting quality child care, and providing support during periods of unemployment.

We are committed to our customers, the public, the organization, each other and ourselves because people's livelihoods depend upon our performance.

  • Communication skills that demonstrate a proven ability to be an effective agency representative and interact constructively with business partners, and internal and external customers;
  • Analytical skills that demonstrate a proven ability to effectively interpret and implement program goals and objectives;
  • Interpersonal skills that demonstrate a proven ability to build and work with a diverse work team;
  • Conflict-resolution skills that demonstrate a collaborative or mutual-interest approach to problem solving;
  • Leadership style that demonstrates a value for innovation and the ability to initiate and influence positive change;
  • Skills that reflect a personal and professional commitment to continuous learning.
