BANGOR - Young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 will have the opportunity to find some answers in planning for the future.
Thursday, April 24 the Tri County Workforce Investment Board will hold its EPIC Maine event.
Eastern Maine Community College will host this full campus networking function for youth who are unsure of their career options.
Organizers say this event is very different from a job fair.
"Individuals who go to EPIC Maine are going to be talking to the people who actually do the jobs," Joanna Russell, Executive Director of Tri County Workforce Investment Board, says. "So the questions will be what do you like about your job, where did you go to get the job training to do the job you have? It's the hands on experience, it's the behind the scenes information that too often slips by."
The event will be held from 10 until 3 and is free with lunch provided.
The Maine Army National Guard, various healthcare providers and more will be there.
