What is a reverse job fair?

The Reverse Career Fair is an annual event unique to Aroostook County!

Unlike a typical career fair where businesses set up booths and present, students are put in the spotlight.  Students apply for a table and, if selected, prepare presentations, resumes, and business cards to present to Aroostook County employers.

This event is great for businesses or organizations because they can spend as much or as little time as they'd like meeting with students representing a variety of degree programs. Businesses and organizations are sent student applications before the event so they can pre-screen the students they'd like to speak with.  Not looking to hire now?  Student participants are at various levels of degree completion.  The Reverse Career Fair is a great place to look for future hires!

The 2nd Annual Reverse Career Fair is being held March 26 from 10 AM - 1:00 PM at the Caribou Rec Center on Bennett Drive in Caribou.
