UMF Hosts Job Fair 

A job fair with an extra emphasis on education was held on the U Maine Farmington campus on Tuesday.About twenty organizations focusing on education were available to graduating seniors and alumni in Maine, as well as any certified teacher or teacher candidates.Organizers tell us it’s one of the few education-specific job fairs held in northern New England. “We’ve been an education school since 1864, obviously we’ve expanded into the liberal arts and we do a lot of work in that area too, but somewhere close to 50% of our graduates are in one education program or another,” Said Stephen Davis, a career counselor at UMF.We’re told about one hundred-fifty people took advantage of the information offered at Tuesday’s job fair.
