PRESQUE ISLE - The Presque Isle CareerCenter announces September programs for job seekers and those who are considering training for a new career.

“Maine reached an all-time high in payroll jobs this year, and our unemployment rate has been under 4.0 percent for 22 consecutive months,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “There is no better time to find work than now, especially as we head into the fall hiring season. Maine CareerCenters can help you update your resume, practice interview skills, or connect you with education or training, and you may qualify for free tuition. Our employers need you. Make yourself standout from other applicants—take the first step and contact your closest CareerCenter.”
