MIASF participated in the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance’s Claim Your Future career fair this month at the BB&T Center and had the opportunity to talk to hundreds of Broward County high school juniors about careers in the marine industry. MIASF Director of Development Sean Smith moderated a panel discussion on careers in the marine and aviation industries, and Brittani Severn from RMK Merrill-Stevens Shipyard represented the marine industry on the panel. Two students from Stranahan High School stopped by the MIASF booth later that day to tell Sean that they had learned about the Marine Industry a couple of years ago at the Marine Industry Summer Camps, and that they were both determined to work in the marine industry. Both students followed-up with emails to Sean that evening, and he is working to find them both summer internships in the industry. If you are interested in hiring these or other interns this summer, please contact Sean@miasf.org.
