Press Herald Interviews Counihan About Job Placement of Graduates

Patty Counihan, director of the Career Center at the University of Maine, spoke with the Portland Press Herald for the article, “Finding a job isn’t getting any easier for Maine teens.” Counihan said hiring plunged five or six years ago, but “it seems like it is coming back slowly but surely.” In 2009, she told the Press Herald, about 60 companies signed up to recruit workers on campus, and this year it was back up to the normal level of around 100. She said the university doesn’t compile overall job placement figures until about six months after a class graduates, but knows IBM hired a handful of UMaine graduates this year, while Enterprise Rent-A-Car hired nine. She said a substantial number of other graduates had offers or interest from potential employers, as well.
