Congressman Mike Michaud and Husson University will host a job fair next month to connect Maine's manufacturers with veterans in search of employment. A recent report by the Maine Department of Labor showed that unemployment among veterans in Maine is higher than the general state population.
"As I travel the state, manufacturers often tell me that they often struggle to find workers with the skills they need. Meanwhile, our veterans are having a difficult time finding work when they come home," said Michaud. "I hope that this job fair will benefit both our returning veterans and our manufacturers in need of qualified employees."
The Manufacturers and Veterans Job Fair will be held at the Husson University Campus Center at 1 College Circle in Bangor from 8:30am to 12:30pm on Thursday, June 14th. Manufacturers interested in participating should register through the online registration form here or by calling (202) 225-6306.
