In early May, Inspectors McKenzie James and Russ Young teamed up the Portland Chapter of The Links, INC and Portland Public Schools to participate in a Career Fair for 9th – 12th grade students to explore different career opportunities. This event has become an annual event held at the Oregon Convention Center.
The Links, Incorporated is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to service, leadership, and enhancing the quality of life in our community. They are committed to community service through four main facets: national trends and services, services to youth, international trends and services and the arts.
According to our inspectors, there were thousands of students in attendance asking many questions about our bureau, careers and services we provide. “It was a great opportunity to spend time with the youth and provide ideas and guidance on possible career choices”, says McKenzie James.
Thank you to Links Co-Chair Barbara Leonard and Inspector McKenzie James for bringing this opportunity forward to the bureau for participation.
