The Marine Trades Industry Partnership ramps up for 4th summer of on-the-job training

We are actively recruiting young workers for openings in the Maryland boating industry.  We have grown the Marine Trades Industry Partnership of employers and educators to over 60 companies.  Employer partners stretch from Solomons to North East. In addition to the summer internships, we are now collecting resumes all year round and matching them with partners on MarylandBoatJobs.com.  Our marketing efforts are continuing with the school systems and trade schools.  We are  hosting our first Hiring Event for Veterans from the Coast Guard at the Progressive Baltimore Boat Show in January this year.  Building awareness that careers in the trades offer confidence, security and independence has been the key to the success of the program.

Please help by putting this in your monthly eblasts to your customers.
