In the best of times, it isn't unusual for talented young interns to work their way into a full time job or, failing that, get snagged by a competitor. In the worst of times, they search and search for something, anything resembling full time work — and eventually move to places like San Francisco, reinforcing the message that Oregon may be a nice place to live, but there are no jobs here.
Colleen Moran had two stints with us an an intern and recently got a fulltime job with Maxwell Communications. Cameron Asmussen, who brought videos to our online production, was so thrilled to get a full-time job he forgot to tell us where he was working (send us a line, Cam!).
Things are looking up. At least that's my impression. I'd be curious to hear your impressions. Is business picking up or still sluggish? Are temporary interns becoming perma-interns? Are recent grads wondering what they're doing in Oregon? Or are they finding real jobs with real paychecks?
Are we bouncing back?
Or is this just wishful thinking?
