Gloucester, Va. (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Mariners who attend the Chesapeake Marine Training Institute (CMTI) job fair this month at its campus in Hayes, Va. will receive a $10 discount on any license application and evaluation services, Capt. Guy Sorensen, CMTI’s President and Founder announced this week.
“This job fair is meant to bring the companies that are hiring together with the professional mariners looking to grow in their careers at sea,” Sorensen said. “If getting the right job for a mariner means needing assistance upgrading their marine licenses or receiving a variety of the evaluations often needed, we’d like to help get them there.”
CMTI’s staff includes License Consultants trained by the U.S. Coast Guard’s National Maritime Center as Mariner Credentialing Agents. These agents serve as experts to help each mariner sail smoothly through their licensing application process.
Confirmed vendors at the job fair include the Vane Brothers Company, Sea Tow Lower Chesapeake, Dann Marine Towing and Precon Marine.
CMTI’s staff and instructors will be available to work with job candidates on licensing and credentialing needs.
The job fair is scheduled for September 17 and 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with vendors scheduling interview times with applicants on an individual basis.
Mariners are encouraged to register for the free job fair.
Mariners of all license and credential levels are encouraged to attend.
One additional slot remains for marine companies who want to attend as a vendor.
CMTI will provide table display space for companies to meet and greet job applicants, as well as private rooms to interview potential candidates. Space to attend the event as a professional marine company is free, but limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
Applicants and vendors attending the event from out of the area are eligible to use the Chesapeake Marine Training Institute rate at nearby hotels.
