In Partnership with:
ACTEM and Educate Maine
May 17 - 21
We are proud and excited to invite you to participate in Maine’s First Virtual Career Fair. In-person career fairs have become signature events for many Maine high schools connecting tomorrow's workforce with employers like you. This year we are aiming to create one high school career fair and make it available to all Maine High Schools and CTE Centers and continue the tradition of exemplifying business-education partnerships at their best.
Maine’s C3 (Community Coordinators Collaborative) is an organization of education professionals working to support students with career exploration opportunities.
The Virtual Career Fair’s primary focus is to introduce students to Maine businesses that represent a variety of careers and professions that are available to them. We are planning to offer numerous 30 minute sessions in the form of live speaker talks with Q&A throughout the week, both during the school day and into evening hours and will feature businesses and organizations from varying industry clusters across the state. You can visit www.mevirtualcareerfair.org for more information.
If you are interested in participating in this event please RSVP here and we will contact you with more details, including available session time slots, in the near future. Your commitment would include speaking to 9th-12th grade students for 30 minutes with ~15-20 minutes for a presentation and ~10-15 minutes for Q&A. An educator will be present
in each session to serve as moderator and to monitor/supervise the students. We are hoping you’ll be able to cover the following topics:
· Tell us about your job
· How you got there
· About the company and other types of positions that help your company run.
· How students can access more information about your company/field
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the event, your participation, etc. These opportunities are truly invaluable and we hope you will participate. Please email us your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to reach out if you have any problems registering online.
Thank you for your consideration,
