This is an opportunity to learn about low-cost or no-cost training programs and job opportunities in a variety of high-paying and in-demand construction careers in Maine.
“Our experience is that women often don’t consider careers in the trades because they haven’t seen female role models working in these fields,” said Suzanne Senechal-Jandreau, Director of Workforce Development. work of New Ventures Maine. “We want to provide women with up-to-date information not only about training, education, and opportunities to earn while learning, but also about high-paying business jobs with benefits that currently exist in our state.”
