Unitus Community CU hosts an outdoor career fair in Portland, Ore.

Job opportunities at credit unions are plentiful, and when it comes to hiring, what matters most is attracting talent to the credit union movement – not competing with other credit unions for top candidates. At least that’s what nine credit unions with a presence in the Portland, Ore., metro area indicated on Friday, when they partnered together for a joint career fair.

Hosted at the Unitus Plaza in downtown Portland, the site of the $1.2 billion Unitus Community Credit Union’s headquarters, the career fair featured representatives from these eight credit unions in addition to Unitus: Advantis Credit Union ($1.4 billion, Clackamas, Ore.), Clackamas Community Federal Credit Union ($388 million, Milwaukie, Ore.), First Tech Credit Union ($12.1 billion, Beaverton, Ore.), IQ Credit Union ($1 billion, Vancouver, Wash.), Point West Credit Union ($106 million, Portland), Rivermark Community Credit Union ($854 million, Beaverton, Ore.), SELCO Community Credit Union ($1.6 billion, Eugene, Ore.) and Trailhead Credit Union ($120 million, Portland). Representatives spoke to job-seekers about a range of positions, and encouraged engagement among attendees by having them fill out a “passport” for a chance to win one of 10 gift baskets. The event also included a DJ and catered lunch.
