The San Juan County Economic Development Council shares some news about the virtual Maritime Career Fair they are presenting next week.
People interested in careers on the water are invited to join the EDC for an online Maritime Career Fair on Thursday, March 31 from noon to 1 p.m. You will learn about seafaring careers that work here in San Juan County. Presenters will include a representative from the whale watch and boat insurance industries, a representative from Puget Sound Pilots, representatives from Washington State Ferries, and others.
The meeting will be held via Zoom so you can attend from anywhere, even with just your phone. To register, please visit the EDC’s website. Participants must be 18 years old or older. For more information, email the EDC Trades Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Residents of San Juan County who attend the career fair are invited to apply for coaching and financial support to defray costs of obtaining their Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC). The EDC will pay for successful applicants’ TWIC card and MMC applications, and for the Coast Guard physical and drug test, and will assist applicants through the process. The number of awards will depend on funds available, and the EDC gratefully invites donors to support the program.
You can support the San Juan Update by doing business with our loyal advertisers, and by making a one-time contribution or a recurring donation.
