The Career Center at the University of Maine in Orono will hold its second annual career fair from 10 am to 3 pm, Jan 28 in the Wells Conference Center.

Representatives from 76 state and national companies will attend the fair and answer questions about career choices and opportunities. Students and faculty from all academic disciplines are encouraged to attend.

“I’m very pleased with the response,” says Patty Counihan, director of the Career Center. “We have an excellent representation of organizations and it’s more than double the size of the fair we had last year.”

Counihan says that although more than half of the organizations attending have jobs and internships to fill, this is not strictly a job fair. It’s really designed for students to learn more about careers and talk face to face with people who represent different careers and get advice and good information.

Companies and organizations such as National Semiconductor, the Bangor Daily News, Up With People, MBNA New England, Raytheon Systems Co. and Bangor Visiting Nurses will be in attendance.
