Powell River has going through a change in terms of what kind of employment is available. At one time the mill was one of the largest employers, alongside the school district and municipality services. Now there are more small businesses, and private enterprises hiring part-time workers. The PEAK Newspaper is one place to look for work, Craigslist Powell River, and chatting to a neighbor are other options. Of course the primary job search agency is Career Link. It can be found at #103-4511 Marine Avenue. They offer workshops on a variety of job readiness subjects every month as well as providing employment counselors and support with resume building. I have included their website here as it has a continually updated list of job opportunities.
