DOVER-FOXCROFT—The Bangor CareerCenter is co-sponsoring a Job and Resource Fair on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Penquis office at 50 North St. The event’s other sponsors include the Piscataquis County Transition Team, MaineStream Finance, Penquis and the Maine Department of Labor.

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

Participating organizations include Charlotte White Center, MaineStream Finance, Eastern Maine Development Corporation, Penquis, Assistance Plus, Charles A. Dean Memorial Hospital, MERT Enterprises, Care & Comfort, Aerus, Maine Staffing Group and 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 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). More information is available on 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.
