Thu, 06/03/2021 - 10:00am

    With businesses in the Boothbay region and beyond looking to hire, an in-person hiring fair is being organized locally for noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday, June 15 at Sherman Field, Boothbay Region High School, on Townsend Avenue.

    The free event, which is open to all employers and job seekers, is sponsored by Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce and Maine Department of Labor, with help from Boothbay Region YMCA and other local supporters.

    Although there is no cost to take part, employers who plan to attend the job fair are asked to register by going to www.mainecareercenter.gov; Click on “Hiring Events” on the home page, which will bring you to a calendar of upcoming events, and then select the June 15 event.

    Job seekers do not have to register.

    Tables for the outdoor event are being provided by the Boothbay Region YMCA. Employers are urged to bring a camp chair or other suitable seating if they wish.

    The Maine CareerCenters can help employers with hosting an in-person, virtual, or drive-through hiring event, give tips on how to post attention-grabbing job postings, and connect them with thousands of job seekers on the newly updated Maine JobLink.

    Employers who have general questions about CareerCenter employer services, or about this event, can contact David Grima of the Maine Department of Labor’s Rockland CareerCenter, at david.m.grima@maine.gov

    CareerCenters also have a variety of services for job seekers, including one-on-one guidance for job search and training plan development. The CareerCenter can be reached by email at MaineDOL.CareerCenter@maine.gov, by phone at 207-623-7981, or by live-chat at MaineCareerCenter.gov
