UMaine virtual career fair Feb. 16

The University of Maine Career Center will host the annual Career Fair virtually 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Feb. 16 on the CareerLink platform.  

UMaine’s Career Fair, the largest in the state, is held each year for UMaine and University of Maine at Machias students and alumni of all majors. All those with an address are welcome to attend.

Upward of 150 employers from Maine and nationwide will participate. Summer jobs, internships, and part-time or full-time positions are available. Selected branches of the U.S. military also will be represented. 

Participants should register online, create a Career Link profile and upload their resume prior to the event. Detailed instructions are available now in the Student Virtual Career Fair Day of Guide to help applicants research participating employers and to prepare attendees for timed for virtual interviews with individual recruiters. Career Center staff also are available to help with resume updates and to provide tips for successful online interviewing. 

The 2022 fair is underwritten by Bangor Savings Bank, Bath Iron Works/General Dynamics, Lewiston Public Schools, Northern Light Health, Pike Industries and Piscataqua Landscaping & Tree Service, with additional support from several area sponsors.
