PORTLAND, Maine (November 17, 2015)—Maine is well known as a top vacation destination, but it is less recognized as an excellent place to launch or continue one’s career.
LiveandWorkinMaine.com is a new website designed to engage job seekers from outside Maine, providing information about employment opportunities and Maine’s unsurpassed quality of life. The site will serve as the cornerstone of a community-based marketing and awareness effort designed to promote the Maine employment brand to the national talent market.
“The competition for talent is global – and high demand talent has the ability to work and live where they choose,” said Ed McKersie, President of Pro Search, Inc., who conceived of the Live + Work In Maine program. “Maine’s quality of life should be marketed as a competitive advantage.”
The program’s tagline, Visit for a Week, Stay for a Lifetime, encourages visitors to consider job opportunities in Maine. Out-of-state job seekers may be eligible to receive reimbursement for their Maine vacation as a signing bonus if they are hired within a year by an employer in the Live + Work in Maine network.
