AUGUSTA — Businesses and others in need of information technology help will soon participate in The Project Login Networking Event set from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, in the Fireside Lounge, Robinson Hall on the campus of the University of Maine at Augusta, 46 University Drive.

The event can bring together college students, faculty and employers. Students are able to hear about internships and job prospects in Maine from a variety of employers. Employers are able to share information about their companies and interact with students who might be a great fit for internships or job opportunities.

These events are a great opportunity for students to engage with employers and learn how their work in the classroom directly connects to the workplace.

Project>Login, a program of Educate Maine, is a campaign to increase Maine’s computing and information technology professionals through education, information, and internships. Project>Login collaborates with Maine’s businesses, universities, and K-12 schools to educate, engage and employ more people in the fields of computing and information technology.

Campus networking receptions attended by current employers and professionals in the field provide students with a venue for learning about current trends in the field of CS/IT and what skills are needed to land an internship or job.

Businesses interested in meeting Computer Information Systems students for possible internship or job opportunities should email Jason at [email protected].
