PORTLAND -- The Home Depot is holding a job fair Wednesday to fill 675 seasonal positions in the Portland area.

The job fair was scheduled to begin at 11 a.m., at the WorkSource Oregon office at 7995 SW Mohawk Street in Tualatin. People can also apply for the jobs online, through the Home Depot website.

While the jobs will begin as temporary positions, many could transition into permanent jobs at the end of the season, according to Home Depot spokesman Chris Giallanza.

Seasonal associates will be assigned responsibilities based on their previous retail or home improvement experience and based on the needs of individual stores, Giallanza added.

For consideration, candidates can apply for positions online like this:

Home Depot also has a special program for military and veterans who are interested in jobs. They can log onto the company s career translator page, which helps match unique military skills with positions within the company.

Home Depot's hiring boost will be taking place not just in Portland, but across the country. The company has announced plans to hire 80,000 seasonal workers overall.
