We work with employers to determine their needs for skilled and culturally diverse workers, and thus connect them with qualified and motivated candidates. Portland Adult Education has close to 1,000 students who walk through our doors each day. Hence, through us, employers can reach a wide range of candidates.
On the other hand, employers play an important role in NMRC programming. Their input about their workforce needs, potential job openings, what they’re looking for in job applicants, doing mock interviews and providing job shadowing and internship opportunities, helps us make sure our program participants are qualified candidates and prepared for the jobs for which they apply.
