Position Available Multnomah County Deputy Surveyor
Here's an Oregon job posting. It is a more urban county so there could be less salal and blackberry. Contrary to the current PNW heatwave in the national news, the PNW has rather pleasant weather with occasional ( 😉 ) rain. A good portion of the folks on this site seem to have Oregon or PNW connections so please send around to anyone who you might know.
Multnomah County is the county Portland is (mostly) in. And the City of Portland is probably at least half the land area of Multnomah County. Then there are a number of suburbs. But there is still plenty of rural land out east.
I believe that the person who currently holds that job was hired to it internally. He had been a county employee for many years before he got licensed. But I'm guessing that they wouldn't be posting this position if they had a valid internal candidate.
I'll bet they ARE posting it because they have a valid internal candidate.
Typical of civil service to cover their tracks and have showy, time-wasting interviews.
That salary is low for a qualified individual in that area, I would think.
