The Maine Development Foundation has launched a new campaign; Next Step Maine
Next Step Maine is part of an effort to capitalize on Maine’s population of non-traditional students and working adults to help them increase their skills and knowledge.
This website is packed with informative advice on getting a GED, starting college, finishing college, financial aid and changing your career. There is also a list of IN DEMAND and HIGH GROWTH jobs in Maine, which is useful in finding out where job openings may be and what level of education you will need to be considered as a candidate. I also found some great links to career exploration websites. Such as My Skills my Future and My Next Move, which are great tools if you are trying to decide your next step!
To learn more about the initiative, you can listen to this brief piece on Maine Things Considered; host Tom Porter spoke with Maggie Drummond of the Maine Development Foundation, which, along with partner organizations, is launching the effort.
Don’t forget to stop by the library for your career related information needs, also! Link to PPL’s catalog for a list of titles on career development.posted: , by Sonya Durney
