Many businesses and organizations across the state are having a tough time finding people to fill jobs.
Officials say the University of Maine System's new guide will help employers find all of the system's career centers and those who are looking for work.
"It's really a great initiative to really connect our thousands of students to Maine employers," Career Center Director Crisanne Blackie said.
The distribution of the hiring guide for Maine employers coincides with CareerFest at the University of Maine in Orono.
The annual event is a chance for employers to meet informally with students to review resumes and provide expert advice on job seeking.
