Entry-level to professional positions available for job seekers from businesses all over Maine
AUGUSTA—Maine’s Job Bank, at http://www.mainecareercenter.com , has added more jobs in the beginning of April to bring the total to over 7,100 openings available. The job bank, a service of the Maine Department of Labor, is an online job board that is free for both employers and job seekers.
“The staff of the Maine Job Bank and CareerCenters work hard to ensure real jobs with real companies are available for Maine's citizens,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “I urge job seekers and employers to learn more about this recruiting tool.”
Employers on the job bank have a variety of opportunities, entry level to professional, with some of Maine's most high-profile companies and small businesses throughout the state. A few of the recent business to join include MedWorks Staffing, hiring a Nurse Practitioner–Psychiatric, S.A. Risk Management, LLC in Bangor, hiring six part-time security guards, and Veillieux Concrete of Belgrade hiring full-time concrete laborers.
The Maine Job Bank includes a custom matching system that connects the requirements of the job opening with the skills and experience of a job seeker. Job seekers who register for a free account will be able to add their resume, enter their skills and experience, and create email alerts to receive jobs that are the closest match to their profile.
Jobs are filled and posted every day by Maine employers and dedicated staff at the Department of Labor. The team at the Department of Labor reviews each employer who registers and their respective postings before activating the job live on the site. CareerCenter staff follow up with employers after two weeks to review the listing's response, make any adjustments or take the listing down once filled. No job listing on the Maine Job Bank is older than 90 days.
CareerCenter staff can help employers and job seekers connect with the Job Bank. CareerCenters offer a variety of workshops and services to help people find employment or upgrade skills. Each center provides several public-access 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.
Maine CareerCenters are an equal opportunity provider. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
The Maine Job Bank incorporates a high level of security and user confidentiality and is put through rigorous testing for ADA compliance.
