Brunswick—The Southern Midcoast CareerCenter is sponsoring the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber's Job Fair on Thursday, October 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cooks Corner Mall, 172 Bath Road, Brunswick. Up to 70 employers representing a wide variety of industries are expected to participate, all with immediate job openings.
“Thousands of Maine employers are hiring right now. Connect with hundreds of them face-to-face at job fairs around the state this fall,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “Maine CareerCenters host or participate in several job fairs each month at locations all across the state. Visit mainecareercenter.gov for an updated list of hiring events and connect with your closest CareerCenter. You can print your resume for free in the days leading up to the job fair and take advantage of other assistance to be ready to make a great first impression.”
Attendees should bring a resume and be prepared to have an “interview-like” conversation with employers to discuss skills, knowledge 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.
