PORTLAND — The Eastern Association of Colleges and Employers announced this week it has selected Portland for its annual conference, scheduled for June 4-6, 2012.

More than 400 college and university career counselors and recruiters are expected to attend the conference at the Holiday Inn by the Bay on Spring Street.

This is the first time the conference has been held north of Boston, and will allow employers in the area to learn more about recruiting college-educated talent while showcasing the city’s entrepreneurial edge, said Jeff Nevers, a career services coordinator from the University of New England.
