Jobs in Salem, Oregon, United States

Located at the heart of the Willamette Valley on the banks of the Willamette River, which runs through the north of the city, Salem is the state capital of Oregon. The third largest city in Oregon Salem is around an hours drive from the larger Portland. Despite its size many people prefer to live in Salem, finding the lower cost of living an attractive incentive.

Salem is also home to Willamette University, Corban University and Chemeketa Community College. The presence of these institution helps to create Salem’s lively social scene and youthful atmosphere.

Home Of Agriculture

While state government is Salem’s largest sole employer there are a great many opportunities to be found in the agricultural sector. As well as the many farms and holdings that operate in the wider area, Salem is the hub for the area’s farming communities. It is also home to many food processing centres. One of the largest is that belonging to Kettle Foods, who have been making potato chips in Salem since 1982. They are a major employer in the area. In a similar vein NORPAC Foods, Inc is another major employer as is Oregon Fruit Products, Inc.

Recently Salem has sought to diversify its economic base. The city is now home to a number of computer related manufacturing plants. It is also home to the Oregon Department of Corrections and four state correctional facilities including Oregon State Penitentiary, the only maximum-security prison in Oregon.

A City Of Many Attractions

The biggest date in Salem’s calendar is the Oregon State Fair, which is held at the end of August on Labor Day weekend. However there are many other festivals, markets and events happening throughout the year.

From May until October the Salem Saturday Market, located north of the Capitol, exhibits an emphasis on local products including crafts, baked goods, produce, meat, and other items. There is also a Wednesday Farmers’ Market hosted downtown in Courthouse Square during the summer, as well a Holiday Gift Market in December.

The annual World Beat Festival, held in June at Salem’s Riverfront Park, lasts for two days. It features international crafts, music, dance, food, and folklore from every continent, and in recent years has held a Dragon Boat Race. Meanwhile the Salem Art Association sponsors the annual Salem Art Fair and Festival, which takes place at Bush’s Pasture Park in the summer months. Its displays, interactive exhibits, food, and performances attract thousands of visitors each year.

In addition to the Oregon State Capitol and adjacent Willson Park, Salem’s downtown contains the Mission Mill Museum, the Elsinore Theatre, the Willamette River, some of the oldest buildings in Oregon, as well as shopping and restaurants. The A.C. Gilbert’s Discovery Village and Prewitt-Allen Archaeological Museum are both also located in Salem. Salem and its environs have a multitude of wineries and vineyards that are open to the public, including Oregon’s oldest winery, Honeywood Winery.

Salem is proving to be an increasingly popular location for young professionals. This is thanks in part to the relatively low cost of living when compared to nearby Portland. The recent drive to diversify the city’s economy has helped to create a number of well paid jobs and this combined with a lively social scene is making Salem a popular choice for many.
