That was the case for David Spencer. He graduated from UMaine last year and is now back at the career fair representing Camden National Bank. Spencer said “It’s great to see all these kids looking for jobs in Maine as well. You know, it’s not easy. People think there’s no jobs in Maine, but there are a lot of opportunities here and it’s great to see the kids show up.”

1,000 students were expected to attend from the University of Maine and other colleges and universities from around the state.
