Real Experiences

Internships, Field Experiences, Practicums, Volunteer Opportunities, and Resume Building Work Experiences are all part of our Experiential Career Learning  Program. All of these offer the potential for valuable learning opportunities outside of the classroom setting. These experiences can serve as a bridge between the traditional academic setting and the profession that our students aspire for. It is our goal at the University of Maine at Presque Isle for  every student to gain at least one of these valuable experiences while they are a student with us.

Career Readiness Weekly Opportunities – 02/27/24

Please find below the opportunities that have crossed my desk this week. They may be of interest. I am simply relaying the information/opportunities. If you have specific questions, please reach out to the organizations directly. Clearly the listings don’t apply to every department, or every student, but it makes much more sense to compile one general list rather than trying to curate several department specific lists. Thank you for your patience, and if you are made aware of any opportunities you’d like me to share, please reach out and I will be happy to include them in the next email.
