More than 100 employers filled the Sullivan Gym on USM’s Portland Campus for the annual Spring Job Fair, covered by WMTW-TV.
The free event gave students the chance to meet people from a variety of industries including technology, travel, health care, the arts, retail and government. Attendees were also given the chance to receive a free professional photo.
“We have employers who are saying to us, ‘Even if they’re not ready to complete their degree, we’ll hire (USM students) as interns. We want to get them into our business and show them why they want to be with us.,’” USM President Glenn Cummings told the TV station.
The event was one of many held this year by the Career and Employment Hub.
