Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy’s Maritime Job Fair on March 30 brings together an unprecedented collection of some of the biggest names in government, military support and private sectors.

For the people of Hampton Roads, it provides a one-stop, free opportunity to engage with employers who are actively in need of workers. According to Raymond Blanchet, Vice President of Operations for the Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy, “This job fair is unlike any held previously due to the new job demands being driven by the new green initiatives, especially the explosive growth of the offshore wind industry. From installation vessels to crew transfer vessels they will all require U.S. Merchant Mariners. And there will be major employers here that need mariners now .”

Over 20 companies plan to attend, ranging from local operators that keep the Port of Virginia running smoothly to offshore, global, and federal employers that make up critical links in the supply chain and military support operations—as well as the shipyards and contractors that keep these vessels operating. For local workers considering a change, the growth and potential growth is staggering and offers a golden opportunity to land the job of your dreams.

Few events are as perfectly suited to eliminate the frustration of modern job hunting while offering workers a face to face conversation with some of the biggest names in global commerce as the Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy’s Job Fair on March 30.

There is no cost to attend, and no registration.
The event is open to anyone interested in working as a merchant mariner or in the shipyard and ship repair trades.
