Employment Needs in Cully

Portland State sociologists, in partnership with Living Cully and Verde, will be conducting research on the unmet employment needs of people in the Cully neighborhood. To better understand these needs, PSU researchers will be out in the Cully neighborhood holding brief 5 to 10 minute interviews with low-income residents. The interviews will discuss resident’s ideal jobs and any challenges they have in getting training or skills for these jobs.

This information will help PSU researchers write a report that Verde and Living Cully can use to better provide resources related to jobs and job training.

In order to be interviewed, residents must 18 years or older, be working or interested in employment, make $14 an hour or less, or have an annual household income of less than $40,000 a year.

If you think you might qualify and are interested in participating, here’s how:

  • In-person interviews will be conducted at the Cully Clean-up on April 22 from 9-3 in the Trinity Lutheran Church parking lot
  • In person interviews will also be conducted at the Albertsons grocery store parking lot from 12pm-5pm Sunday April 30th.
  • All in person interview participants will receive a $5 gift card to Albertsons!

If you can’t make it to an in person interview, you can still be interviewed by phone by clicking this link. Qualified participants will be asked to leave their name and contact information and a PSU researcher will follow up to set up a phone interview.

You can also call (971) 319-1406 if you wish to speak directly to a researcher about the study. All phone interview participants will be entered to win a $50 Alberton’s gift card!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dr. Amy Lubitow, faculty in Sociology at Portland State University. This project is supported by PSU’s Institute for Sustainable Solutions.
