AUGUSTA — Maine Department of Labor’s network of 12 CareerCenters host, sponsor or participate in several career fairs throughout the year. Hundreds of employers are hiring for thousands of permanent and seasonal positions. Several hiring events are scheduled into August.
“Maine had the fourth lowest unemployment rate in the U.S. in March, and over 4,500 more Mainers are working this year versus the same time last year,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “Employers need qualified people to fill many open jobs, so I urge you to connect with your closest Maine CareerCenter. Our team will help you search for a new or better job, improve your resume writing and interview skills, and get the most out of the job fairs happening right now.”
Job seekers who need to update their resume or practice their interviewing skills should contact a CareerCenter for free help.
