I've received a couple of job offers from the Portland and Tillamook Oregon area and was wondering if anyone here can tell me something about the area and the job market there?

Good luck,

I can't speak for the contractor's market, but there sure are a lot of @#$%ing new houses being built on every spare inch of land. There are also some industrial projects going on, such as expanding light rail and whatnot.

Being a native of the area, I get pretty upset at all the sprawl. So many nice places in the area are now covered by LA-style houses spaced only a few feet apart. Sad.
