Portland is the largest city in Maine – with good reason! From gorgeous coastal views to a healthy job market and supportive community, Portland offers a wonderful quality of life.
Our city has a way of making a name for itself: Forbes magazine cites Portland as the #1 Best City for Jobs this Spring (2013), as well as one of America’s Most Livable Cities. Portland is also a college town in its own right, with the University of Southern Maine, Maine College of Art, University of New England and Southern Maine Community College campuses within minutes of the downtown area. Every market from web design & marketing and auto sales to plastic surgery and accounting has a place in Portland.
Portland businesses offer all of the amenities of a large city within a small, close-knit community. The Old Port is a small seafront area of Portland that houses hundreds of businesses – from hair & beauty salons, insurance services and home improvement to photography & video services, printing services and graphic design - and that’s just one corner of the Portland area!
The Portland community is home to several non profit & charitable organizations - so whether you’re interested in working for non-profits, or getting involved as a volunteer, you’ll find plenty of ways to do good (and meet new people while you’re at it!).
