Oregon Legal Jobs
If looking for a new career in Oregon, you may want to consider applying for a legal job. Legal jobs can be located in traditional private law firms, in courts or in government agencies, such as the district attorney's office or a legal department for a large municipality.

Oregon has a diverse economy, from fishing and forestry to tourism and technology. Some well-known businesses call the state their corporate home including gift guru Harry & David; Nike, Inc.; and Lithia Motors. In Portland, Oregon's largest city, some of their leading employers include StanCorp Financial Group, Portland General Electric, NorthWest Natural Gas and Precision CastParts Corporation.

With so much business, there are ample opportunities to secure a position in one of these corporations' legal departments. As a part of the general counsel, an attorney would be responsible for defending and advising the legal needs of that business. This often includes working with contracts and other employment issues.

If you are not interested in an attorney's position, you can often find paralegal jobs, or jobs for legal secretaries or consultants.

Exceptional communication skills are necessary to be successful in a contract paralegal job. Communication is necessary not only to discuss and interpret the contracts, but also in following up with people to make sure the contract is adhered to and all components completed.

Legal secretaries are the first point of contact for many law practices. A successful legal secretary will possess excellent communication skills, and the ability to prioritize needs and maintain strict confidentiality.

If you have a background in another field, such as a Registered Nurse, there are often consultant positions open. As a legal nurse consultant, you will likely have a nursing degree and general experience or training in the legal field. As part of your duties, you may be required to oversee paralegals who are working with medical records for specialized law practices, such as medical malpractice or personal injury practices.

There are many employment options if you are looking to settle in this state. These are just a few potential opportunities if you are looking in Oregon for a legal job. Depending on your education, interpersonal skills and career goals, you might just find the perfect career in this field.
