RUMFORD—The Lewiston CareerCenter will be sponsoring a job fair for the Greater Rumford area on Thursday, Nov. 7, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Rumford American Legion at 184 Congress St.

“This job fair will highlight local job opportunities in Oxford County,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “We are working hard to connect job seekers with Maine businesses at the local and regional levels.”

Employers include Sunday River, Adecco, Assistance Plus, Bonney Staffing, Fed Ex, Gorham Paper and Tissue, New Balance, Oxford Casino and many more.

Attendees should bring a resume and, more important, should be prepared to have an “interview-like” conversation with employers to discuss skills, knowledge areas and abilities. Job seekers should also be dressed for an interview.

CareerCenters, part of the Maine Department of Labor, offer a variety of workshops and services to help people find employment or upgrade skills. Each center provides several public-access computer workstations with Microsoft Office software, resume writing and cover letter software, Internet access and O’Net software for skills assessment. All CareerCenter services are free of charge.

Call 753-9005 (TTY users call Maine Relay 711) for additional information and to register for workshops held at the CareerCenter. The CareerCenter, located at 5 Mollison Way in Lewiston, is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can also find more information at the CareerCenter website, http://www.mainecareercenter.com .

Maine CareerCenters are an equal opportunity provider. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
