Indeed.com is a job search engine. It is not a list of message boards, or a place where you can actually submit your resume. From the site FAQ page: "Indeed searches jobs listed on job boards, newspaper sites and niche sites. Indeed dynamically monitors job listings on these websites on a continuous basis, so in one simple search you can find the very latest jobs listed on every site."

I agree with the other agents here about resources for job searching and rental opportunities. I wanted to add that when you do think you've found a good place to rent, go to http://www.rentometer.com and enter the address and required details for the place you're considering. It will give you an good idea as to whether what your desired place is asking for rent is comparable to the area. I use this resource ALL the time and have found it to be immensely helpful.
You will find it gives you leverage in negotiating a fair rent if you are more savvy regarding comparable rents in the area, and if the landlord is way off, you'll know to keep looking.
Good luck with your job and temporary housing search! If you need any more information, let me know!

don't blame you one bit...as Portland is a "hell of a town"!! It's a great "big, little city" with so much to offer. There are several web sites for job location: http://www.monster.com or http://www.portlandjobsonline.com come to mind right away. You might visit some obvious sites such as the Intel site for tech positions, as well as the Oregonian newspaper "want ads".
When it's time to re-rent my investment properties, I post first on Craig's List, so I believe that to be one of the best resources. But, please feel free to visit my site at http://www.janeesejackson.com and go to the left nav bar for "My Resources" and there are a list of property managers there that could help with your rental housing search.
Good luck and welcome to the west coast (I grew up in Tennessee, have lived in Oregon since 1973)...
