AMAZING MARINE INDUSTRY OPPORTUNITIES

The summer of 2017 is certainly in full swing and yet, our Career Opportunities area has 15 unfilled positions advertised. If you haven't read through these, you may be amazed at the marine industry employment opportunities that are out there.

Out of 15 unfilled positions, only three are for marine technicians. There are people needed in parts, sales, accounting, and there are several opportunities in marketing and advertising. There's even a government position advertised.

Several of the jobs also include information about starting salaries and these are not minimum-wage positions!

For young people who find themselves shut out of homeownership in the big cities, we have a number of real career opportunities in attractive cottage country locations.

Keep reading this and recommending that young people you know, watch the Boating Industry Canada Career Opportunities area. Let's hope that our industry attracts the bright and energetic new people we need to succeed. And, let's hope that these potential employers find the staff they need to have a very successful season in the summer of 2017.
