JAY — A hiring event will be held 2:30 to 4 p.m. Thursday, May 11, at the Spruce Mountain High School gym.

The event is being planned by Christina King from the Career Center in Lewiston with help from school counselor Christopher Beaudoin and Zach Keene, Jobs for Maine Graduates.

“We will have many employers attending,” Beaudoin noted in a recent email.

A career fair will be held for Spruce Mountain students only from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

“The career fair portion will be for students to have exposure to different employment opportunities as well as careers that are in the area,” Beaudoin noted. “It will also be a way for older students to apply for part time employment as well as for seniors entering the workforce to discover full time opportunities.”
