The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) will include a new job fair component for consumers seeking employment in the recreational marine industry. Boating Career Day will be held at NMMA’s 2019 Progressive Insurance Atlanta, New York and New England boating shows where job seekers are invited to browse participating exhibitor booths that have job openings. NMMA is encouraging participation from those seeking employment through PR and social media efforts that include offering a free ticket to applicants who complete an online form with their contact information and job interests.
In addition, the 2019 Progressive Insurance Atlanta, New York, Minneapolis, New England, Atlantic City and Northwest Sportshow shows will invite local students to learn about the various career paths within recreational boating. Students will hear from a diverse mix of individuals, across numerous jobs in the industry, as part of a Q&A panel at each show. The event will help showcase the size, impact and scope of the industry and its career and job opportunities from marine technicians to engineers to sales and much more.
