Camden Hills Regional High School sponsors Midcoast Career and Education Fair April 27

Event has passed

The School Counseling Department at Camden Hills Regional High School will hold the inaugural Midcoast Career and Education Fair on Thursday, April 27, from 5-8 p.m. on the CHRHS campus at 25 Keelson Drive in Rockport. The keynote speaker for the evening will be Maine State Economist Amanda Rector (a CHRHS alumna).

This is not your grandparents’ career fair, organizers said.

The premise on which the evening is centered is “one stop shopping” for acceptance at a Maine Community College, summer or permanent employment, or both!

Representatives from Maine’s seven Community College on hand to do on-the-spot admissions and over 40 local employers looking for seasonal or full-time employees.  Free “street” food and childcare will be provided in order to eliminate potential barriers to attendance.

High school seniors and adults from ALL area high schools (Lincoln Academy to Searsport) are invited to attend.  The evening will be dividing the evening into two sessions in order to alleviate congestion.

Session 1 will be from 5-6 p.m., followed by the keynote address at 6 p.m. After a break, Sessions 2 will run from 7-8 p.m.  Attendees are encouraged to sign up ahead of time to enable balanced participation if necessary, using this form:

High School graduates in the Classes of 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 are all eligible for the tremendously popular free community college program and should bring a high school transcript to facilitate an admissions decision.  

This amazing opportunity was initiated just last year, well after some of the qualifying graduates finished high school.  If you know someone who graduated in the qualifying classes, please pass along the info.  Free college is too good a deal to miss! For students who don’t want to attend college but require some additional training beyond high school, MCCS reps will be able to share the multiple workforce development opportunities across the state.

The list of employers is growing by the day.  Contact if you are an employer and wish to reserve a table for the evening.
