By Jim McCoy Tue 25th February Newseconomyjobs
According to a report issued by the Oregon Employment Department, employers around the state were looking to fill some 32-thousand jobs in 400 different occupations. The survey provides a snapshot of the local job market. Four occupations had more than a thousand openings each: personal care aides, farmworkers and laborers, heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers and customer service representatives. Wages offered for jobs varied greatly depending on the education required- from $12.00 per hour for jobs that required less than a high school education, to $33.22 for those that required a post-graduate degree. Experience also factored into the pay offered: vacancies requiring no experience offered an average of $11.26, whereas those requiring more than five years' experience paid an average of $28.34. Health care has the highest demand for employees: one out of five vacancies were in the health care and social assistance field.
