ORONO - Some of today's college graduates are called boomerangs. After they walk across the stage to get their diplomas, they find themselves walking right back home to mom and dad. However, the University of Maine hopes to change that.
The school held a career fair with hopes that soon to be graduates, as well as freshman and alumni, can make connections. The students also learned more about the field they hope to work in, and just gain all around experience when it comes to applying for a job.
Scot Reynolds of Boston Partners Financial Group was looking to have students apply to work at his business. He says the "key to a first impression is good eye contact and a strong handshake."
