Portland Press Herald’s @Work brings together job seekers, employers, thought and business leaders, and those looking to continue their career development for an event celebrating employment in Maine.

Attendees will be able to talk directly to over seventy recruiters at the job expo, learn new skills or hone old ones with seminars from USM’s Professional & Continuing Education Department and Heart At Work’s career counselors.

We will also be hosting a free professional headshot station and there will be a chance to win a career counseling session with Heart At Work Associates – a $150 value.

Registration is not required, but you can RSVP to get an email reminder and other business updates from the Press Herald.
