Would you like to apply and expand your trades maintenance skills without the hassle of loading all your tools into your truck, traveling to multiple job sites, and worrying about the slow season? Here at Portland State University, we offer year-round, primarily indoor employment, AND there’s no more traveling from one job in Portland today, to another job in Gladstone next week, then Salem after that.
