ORONO — The University of Maine Career Center will host the 18th annual UMaine Career Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3, at the New Balance Student Recreation Center.

More than 120 employers from Maine and around the country with job and internship opportunities are expected to exhibit at the fair. Several graduate and professional schools, as well as branches of the military, also will be represented.

Students attending the fair are advised to dress professionally, bring resumes, prepare a 30-second introductory pitch and research the companies they plan to speak with before attending.

New this year, students also are encouraged to download the “Careers by Simplicity” app available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play. The feature allows students to filter participating employers by available positions and preferred majors.

The UMaine Career Fair is the largest career fair in the state. While the event is held each year for UMaine students and alumni of all majors, students from colleges and universities around the state are welcome to attend. About 850 students attend the event annually.

More information, including a list of participating employers and career fair tips, is available online or by contacting Blackie at [email protected] or 207-581-1355. The snow date for the event is Wednesday, Feb. 10.
