Career Center Resources
The Career Center has countless resources available to all University of Maine students. This week’s post will be the first in an on-going series examining some of the resources UMaine students can take advantage of. Keep your eyes out for upcoming posts and feel free to stop by the Career Center to meet with a career counselor and learn more!
CareerLink is the University of Maine Career Center’s on-line job and internship site and web-based on-campus interview system specifically for UMaine students!! It is an extremely important and useful resource for the students who use it because the employers who post jobs are looking specifically for students from the University of Maine.
