Some 78 companies that employ engineers will be at the University of Maine Wednesday, Oct. 17, looking to meet future employees or prospective interns from UMaine’s College of Engineering.
The 2012 Engineering Job Fair takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the New Balance Student Recreation Center. The annual event is an opportunity for students to learn about some of the engineering firms in Maine and New England, meet company representatives and pass along a resume that could lead to a job after graduation or on-the-job experience through a co-op or internship. The UMaine Career Center is cosponsored with the College of Engineering.
Students can talk with company representatives about the job market and the type of projects the companies do. Students are advised to bring resumes, prepare 30-second introductory pitches and research the companies they’ll speak with beforehand. The number of participating companies has increased from last year.
The event historically has attracted some of the best engineering companies in the Northeast, looking specifically for UMaine students. More information, including a list of the companies scheduled to attend is on the Career Center website.
