Biddeford Maine's Career Resource Center

Seeds of Hope Neighborhood Center maintains a resource center for people in Biddeford Maine and surrounding communities who have lost jobs ... or who are looking for better jobs that can support greater independence and security for their families and themselves. Much more than just a notebook and a bulletin board with some job listings, the resource center is staffed by volunteers who can help you get an organized job search underway and guide you in the process of using the Internet to find a job.

If you are a person looking for work in the Biddeford Maine area, or an employer in the Biddeford Maine area, we also invite you to sign up to participate in the Biddeford HIRE LOCAL! group. The group is an established vehicle to share job hunting experiences, post local jobs, or just to share ideas about improving Biddeford's economic development from the standpoint of hiring local people for local jobs. Subscribe by entering your email below or see HIRE LOCAL! for more information.
