Living with disabilities doesn't mean there aren't options for employment. An event in Bangor later this month will focus on helping people with disabilities learn how to find those jobs and meet some folks who have done it successfully.

The 5th Annual Disabilities Mentoring Day is being held at the Bangor Community Center on the Davis Road on October 22nd. From 9am to 2:30pm, people with disabilities are invited to "Explore the Possibilities."

The day will be devoted to career awareness and more. Activities will include meeting local employers and finding out what employers are looking for, using social media in a job search, and improving interview skills.

Lunch will be provided by Olive Garden and culinary arts trainees from Penobscot Job Corps Academy will provide hospitality for the luncheon. The event is being sponsored by the Eastern Maine Development Corporation and the Career Center.

Pre-registration is required for this event. Call Colleen Giblin at 561-4045, send her an email, or call the Career Center to register. And get ready to explore the possibilities!
