An estimated 400 recruiters from 176 organizations, including many from the offshore wind industry, attended the recent Fall Career Fair at Massachusetts Maritime Academy, a public university with undergraduate degree programs focusing on science, engineering, technology, math and business that blend academics and experiential learning.

Students had the opportunity to discover career paths and opportunities, learn about potential future employers, and receive a closer look at the many different industries available as an alumni of MMA.

The event also allowed employers an avenue to learn about the Academy’s academic programs and to discover the skills and talents of the student body.

  • American Bureau of Shipping
  • Crowley Maritime

McDonald, USMS, president of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, noting that this year, the Academy welcomed a significant number of offshore wind related companies in need of a trained professional workforce to support the expansion of offshore wind.
