Research and Recruit Employers, Monitor Employment Trends and Make External Connections
With membership in various human resources, recruiting and professional organizations, we serve as an external representative of the University of New England. In recruiting employers for our Career Fair and researching job prospects for students and alumni, we continuously seek out, cultivate and update an ever-growing employer contact database. We are happy to share our knowledge and contacts with your department. Likewise, feel free to share with us your relevant contacts, so we can provide our students with even more employment opportunity awareness.
Our Student Mission
The skills required to obtain a job are vastly different than the skills required to do that job. We strive to provide students comprehensive skills to navigate their path to career fulfillment. Our goal is to empower students with the knowledge and skills to secure the best employment opportunities available in their field, while giving them the strongest tools in marketing their abilities to employers.
We counsel students on a number of career topics. We guide students on creating and updating effective resumes, C.V.’s, and cover letters. We also help them develop their job search strategies, personal branding, interview skills, social networking presence, and knowledge of basic employment law and contract negotiation. We engage students in pursuit of their career aspirations and provides associated resources in assisting them in achieving those aims.
We also host an annual Career Fair, hold workshops, maintain a Job Postings board and provide students with job leads and resources.
We collaborate with faculty to support the career and professional development of the UNE Portland Campus student body. We rely on your support, assistance, and referrals as students explore their vocational aspirations and goals. Together, we can create a comprehensive career-development initiative on the Portland Campus.

- Continuing to refer your students to our services at Proctor Hall 02 or through email.
- Assisting students in developing life-long career pursuit and leadership skills.
