New MRAA Online Career Center and Collaborative Marine Industry Career Network
As part of NMDA’s mission, we want to keep members informed about the industry and the useful, new tools available. MRAA has launched a new interactive career center, the MRAA Rewards Career Center—an easy-to-use and highly targeted resource for online employment connections.
“We’re very excited about MRAA Rewards Career Center, because we know how critical it is for employers in the marine industry to attract first-rate talent with a minimum expenditure of time and resources,” said Nancy Cueroni, NMDA. “And it’s important for us help enable smooth career transitions for those seeking industry jobs.”
Both members and non-members can use the MRAA Rewards Career Center to reach qualified candidates. Employers can post jobs online, search for candidates based on specific job criteria, and create an online resume agent to email candidates with matching profiles daily. Employers also benefit from online reporting that provides job activity statistics.
For job seekers, the MRAA Rewards Career Center is a free service that provides access to employers and jobs in the marine industry. In addition to posting their resumes, job seekers can browse and view available jobs based on their needs and save those jobs for later review, if they choose. Job seekers can also create a search agent to provide email notifications of opportunities that match their requirements.
An added benefit for both employers and job seekers is access to the Marine Industry Career Network (MICN), a group of five top marine associations and professional organizations, including the American Boat and Yacht Council, National Marine Manufacturers Association, National Marine Distributors Association, Boating Industry and the MRAA. The MICN was built exclusively for professionals working within the marine industry to provide an effective online recruitment method on a single network. www.marinecareers.org
At the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, we believe that for the marine industry to thrive, the companies that interact with the boater in their community must thrive. Those businesses determine the boater’s experience and are the leading factor in the industry’s success. The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas works to create a strong and healthy boating industry by uniting those businesses, providing them with opportunities for improvement and growth, and representing them with a powerful voice.
