Career assistance: Career Hub, Jobs Board, Project Em

Federation starts Career Hub

The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland has launched a career hub on its website – essentially a job board for the ongoing listing of job opportunities across the greater Portland Jewish community.
This job board will function similarly to the community calendar in that agencies with an open position will submit their proposed listing to be reviewed and approved by a JFGP career hub administrator. 
 Submitters are encouraged to include a salary range for transparency/equity. A Feb. 28 program will focus on the importance of Salary Range Transparency: What’s Equity Got to Do with It? To learn more, email
“The pandemic has led to many job vacancies in the organized Jewish community,” says JFGP Director of Community Planning & Allocations Caron Blau Rothstein, who staffs the career hub. “Helping our Jewish organizations and community members find those opportunities easily in one location will be accomplished through this new resource.”
The Jewish Review includes a Jobs Board in each issue that lists job openings from Jewish agencies and congregations (see below). The Review will continue to run short job openings as well as list the latest openings posted on the career hub.
