The Career Center engages and educates students in their career development process. Our programming reflects our mission and the Career Center staff is honored to be able to assist students with their career readiness every day. A focus for this year was technology improvement and implementation. Our partnership with the University of Maine at Machias continues to evolve and their students are now able to participate in our presentations that are hosted in the Career Center Library. Their students are included in our online job listing database, CareerLink and are invited to participate in all of our programs and utilize our online resources. Several of our staff members have visited the UMM campus and met with students and staff. Internships are a continual point of interest for students, parents and faculty so we spent time this year identifying internship programs that are in existence, meeting with faculty who coordinate these programs and working towards a common set of internship guidelines. Employer relations continues to expand as we hosted the two largest career events in the state; the Engineering Job Fair and the Career Fair. In order to stay current in our field, the Career Center staff participated in trainings that resulted in national certifications in the Career Development field enhancing our credentials.
