Hey anyone work for the city of Woodburn? I have an interview next Tuesday with public works and was wondering if anyone had words of advice, good thoughts, or anything else to help me land a job in this crappy economy!

Speak and know Spanish...and Russian.

Comprende mucho espanol.....yo hablo pequito espanol pero comprende mucho.


I did substitute teaching in that area and it was a plus if you spoke those two languages.

Hated the schools like a plague...

They paid good money for one days work but never again.

Good luck if you're not a minority and don't speak Spanish.

Also pretty much the same that if you want to work for Portland you have to show your voting card that shows your a commie..

I think you oughtta buy a Rosetta stone language tutor. It might help. Spanish is pretty easy to get a functional vocabulary. I bet a smart college boy like yourself could learn enough to get through an interview on the premise that you know a little spanish in a week.

Good Luck
