More Sessions For Federal Prison Job Seekers


With 200 new jobs available at the federal prison in Berlin a group of organizations from the North Country is offering a series of free meetings through the North Country to provide details and help applicants.

 The two-hour meeting will include presentations from officials with the New Hampshire Employment Security, The Gorham Family Resource Center and the White Mountains Community College.

While the jobs are seen as having good pay and benefits the application process can be tricky since much of it must be done on the Internet.

The groups – working under the umbrella “The Northern New Hampshire Talent Team” are providing free help with everything from filling out the application to gathering information for a comprehensive background check.

Here’s a list of the meetings:

Monday, November 28, 2011 - 6 p.m. at White Mountains Community College, Berlin

 Tuesday, November 29, 2011 - 6 p.m. at Colebrook  Elementary School

 Wednesday, November 30, 2011 - 6 p.m. at Littleton Learning Center

 Thursday, December 1, 2011 - 6:30 p.m. at Lancaster Elementary School.
