WHAT: Husson University will be holding a career fair from 1 – 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 in the G. Peirce Webber Campus Center located in Peabody Hall on the educational institution’s Bangor campus. This is an outstanding opportunity for students and other individuals interested in internships or employment opportunities in the healthcare, non-profit sector and social services to network and meet hiring professionals in their chosen fields. All Husson University students, regardless of their major are encouraged to participate.  

There is no cost to attend. Students, veterans and members of the public are all welcome.

WHY: According to the State of Maine’s Center for Workforce Research and Information, the projected fastest growing employment sector between 2016 and 2026, at 9.2 percent, will be healthcare support occupations. In close second will be healthcare practitioners and technical occupations at 8.9 percent.

The demand for skilled healthcare professionals in Maine is significant. A study conducted by the Center for Health Affairs revealed that, without intervention, Maine could be short 2,700 nurses by 2025.  

Maine needs a qualified, trained, and experienced healthcare workforce.
