PRESQUE ISLE -- The Presque Isle CareerCenter announces no-cost programs in January for job seekers, those who are considering training for a new career, and employers.
"For the past eight years I have worked to make Mainers more prosperous," stated Governor Paul R. LePage. "A new or better job is a key part of that goal. If you want a job with better pay or benefits, a better commute, or more opportunity to advance your career, contact your local CareerCenter. They can help you find a new job, prepare your resume and practice for that interview, and connect you with training. You may even qualify for a free training program. I wish all Mainers success in their careers, and remember that Maine needs everyone who can work to work to help our economy grow."
Job seekers and businesses interested in connecting with one another can also like the CareerCenter on Facebook. Events are held at the Presque Isle CareerCenter, located at 66 Spruce Street, unless otherwise noted. Maine Veterans receive priority of service in all CareerCenter programs.
