BANGOR, MAINE – Career Services at Husson University will be holding an in-person career fair on Wednesday, November 3 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Newman Gymnasium, 1 College Circle in Bangor. More than 48 organizations, from a diverse assortment of businesses, will be present and looking to speak with job applicants interested in new career opportunities.

“Those in attendance will have the opportunity to speak with employers about full-time positions, internships, and part-time employment,” said James Westhoff, the director of Career Services. “All kinds of for-profit and non-profit businesses will be present as well as a variety healthcare organizations.” 

The event is free and open to all Husson University students, alumni and members of the public. No appointment is necessary for job seekers. Applicants can visit the career fair at their convenience. It’s recommended that job seekers wear professional business attire.

Anyone unable to attend the in-person career fair has the option of attending Career Services’ virtual career fair on November 17, 2021 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. through the online platform Airmeet. Many of the same employers who attended the in-person career fair will be present.

Westhoff feels that online career fairs offer some unique advantages. “Husson online students who complete degrees out of state might not be able to attend one of our in-person career fairs because of the distances involved,” he said. ”Virtual career fairs allow students working toward completing online degrees to get some “face time” with potential employers from the comfort of their own home.”

In addition, the virtual career fair will also provide students, alumni and additional employers from a variety of geographic locations with an opportunity to connect. Companies who could not send representatives to the in-person event can easily log on and interview job applicants from wherever they’re located.

Both the in-person and online career fairs will provide students, alumni and members of the public with information about career options they may not have previously considered. Many of the organizations participating in this event are currently hiring. Other participating organizations anticipate have openings in the near future.

Over 56 employers are expected to have representatives present at these upcoming in-person and virtual career fairs.
