My wife and I are thinking of relocating to the Eugene/Springfield area, & we are wondering about the work availability in the area? We have vacationed in the area and really do like the area.

You can check out eugenejobs.net or check the classifieds in the Register Guard newspaper or the Eugene Weekly might have a few....

There is always a demand for medical careers (nurses especially), and aside from the hospitals I think the University is the largest employer. Also - there are lots of nursing homes/assisted living opportunities here. Eugene is full of entrepreneurs... lots of small business owners. It just has that spirit about it. Good luck!

above comment is very true. Unemployment here is extremely high. If you want to live in a place with minimal crime, violence and racial strife then this is the place to be. Eugene is the most peaceful place I have ever lived in. I moved here a year ago and could not find work with over 25 years experience as a social worker. I'm in love with this town so I declined an offer to return to my previous employment in California. The people here are so polite and friendly here. I'm recently retired and doing volunteer work.

If you want to retire it cost a lot to live here as far as making a living you will survive are work your butt off to get ahead. This town has a habit of chasing off the good paying jobs pay low charge high all though a great area it rains more then most admit last summer we had a two month summer looks like it is going to be that way again.
