Annual Career Fair

The College of Education and Human Development hosts a Career Fair each spring for teacher candidates to meet with potential employers. The fair is usually held in April, a few weeks before UMaine student teachers earn their degrees and become certified teachers. Many schools and districts in central and eastern Maine, and some from other parts of the state, send representatives to meet our students and discuss job openings with them. For more information, please contact director of field placements and teacher preparation Erin Straine,
