Does your business need employees? The MIASF Education and Workforce Committee has been working on some great workforce initiatives and actively recruiting marine businesses to join the committee.

Some of the current initiatives include:
• Raising awareness for marine industry careers through school engagement and the Salty Jobs video series
• Placing high school and college students in summer internships in the marine industry
• Evolving the Salty Jobs website to include an interactive marine industry job board
• Working with United Way/Mission United to help place veteran job seekers in marine industry careers
• Developing a marine industry apprenticeship for shipyard skills
