Fall Job Fairs

September 14, 2015

Fall Job Fairs Scheduled Around Maine

Fall job fair season is about to begin around Maine, providing an opportune time for job seekers looking for work. The Department of Labor’s network of 12 CareerCenters will be sponsoring and/or participating in several career fairs. Hundreds of employers will be hiring for both permanent and seasonal positions.

“Employers are recruiting at Maine’s CareerCenters,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “Our monthly job fairs make connections between job seekers and their next position. Each CareerCenter offers several workshops that can help you write a better resume, brush up on your interviewing skills, and prepare to meet with employers. I urge employers and job seekers alike to contact your local CareerCenter.”

Job seekers who need to update their resume or practice their interviewing skills should contact a CareerCenter for no-cost help. To find more information about jobs fairs across the state or to locate the closest CareerCenter and information about job training programs, visit the CareerCenter website, http://www.mainecareercenter.com .

"Many people may avoid going to a job fair to apply to their dream job because they doubt their skills or their ability to pay for training or returning to school," said Labor Commissioner Jeanne S. Paquette. “Whether you have a dream job in mind or just want to improve your career prospects, we urge you contact your local CareerCenter. There may be ways we can help you prepare for a job fair, brush up your skills with a specific course we recommend, or retrain for an entirely different career.  We have many programs right now that can assist job seekers at any stage of their career, including the long-term unemployed."
