HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE JOB FAIR

For some people, this may be their first job interview. Here are a few helpful tips: 

  • Come early.
  • Read over all the literature provided, including the Course Catalogue.
  • Come with an idea of what you would like to do for the summer at Maine Media.
  • Be prepared to alter your desires as you learn more about what Maine Medias' needs are. Remember, this is supposed to be a win-win situation. You have something we need: your energy, time, enthusiasm, skills, participation; and we have something you need: access to training in a specific career, improved technical skills, networking, production experience and building a winning attitude that will help you succeed in your own career.
For many, their careers began at Maine Media. We do not want to give you rules, or have you second guess what we are looking for. We basically want to see and hear you. You do not have to try to impress us. Be yourself. We do want to know what you know and what contribution you can make to Maine Media. We are looking for people with a positive outlook on life, who are enthusiastic, can solve problems and are fun to work with.
  • Bring a sample of your work to show, copies of your résumé, any letters of recommendation. Friday evening there is an opportunity to display and screen your work for other weekend participants and Maine Medias' Staff. You will find the weekend is an important event in itself as you meet other image makers from around the country, share your work, and discuss your future.
