Are you interested in exhibiting for no-cost at a CareerCenter job fair? Contact the Employer Services Representative at your local CareerCenter. Federal requirements state that employers must have their jobs listed with the state's labor exchange system--Maine JobLink.
Some job fairs may be third-party events where the CareerCenter is a sponsor and not the host. These may require a fee to exhibit. We encourage you to connect with the coordinator of the event for questions.
