Gorge Works: Your Career Adventure is Here!

Sixteen New Career Opportunities
Await through Gorge Works

Are you finishing high school this spring? In the middle of college? Looking for a mid-life career change? 

Chances are, Gorge Works has something worth considering. We've rounded up some of the best career exploration opportunities in the Columbia Gorge for internships and work experiences for Summer 2019. These opportunities are open to anyone over 18 (a few as young as 16). You don't have to currently be part of an education program. We want to give you a chance to meet some awesome Gorge employers and give you a chance to show them what you can do. 

The best thing? It's easy to apply for multiple opportunities using one simple application. But be sure to put your best foot forward, because you will have competition.

Here's a list of what we have so far, but keep checking back, some may be added in the coming weeks):
Don't waste any time! Applications are due no later than 5 p.m., Thursday, January 31. Click the button below to learn more!

Don't Let an Employer Pass You By

Do you wish you had just 10 more minutes (or 20 or an hour) and your resumé would be perfect? Are you having trouble getting potential hirers to notice you? Your resumé and cover letter are your introduction to an employer. Make sure they send the right message. Here are a couple of resources that may help.

How to Get Your Resumé Noticed By Employers has some ideas on just that. Check it out!

Next, check out 17 Quick Tips to Get Your Cover Letter Noticed for some more helpful ideas.

We are also willing to help with mock interviews and resumé reviews. Contact us at for more information.


Looking for an Intern Next Summer?

We are reaching the end of our regular Host Employer recruitment process, but if you are interested in hosting an intern during the Summer of 2019, then please let us know. We can accept late entries until the end of 2018. 

Who knows? An intern may help you with that project you just haven't been able to get to, or they may even be your next longterm hire! Some of last year's interns parlayed their Summer 2018 experiences into jobs, others plan to be back for a new experience this year.

Our internship recruitment efforts are aimed at students with local ties, so housing is generally not an issue.

One application will allow you to apply for all of the Gorge Works internships. You'll find it online on December 15.
