The Bow Waves Careers At Sea Expo, which will showcase a range of careers in the marine industry, is to take place on January 4 at 7pm at the Galway Radisson BLU Hotel.
Many areas of the marine industry have proven to be unaffected by the economic downturn and as a result there is a worldwide demand for qualified marine personnel. To help people take advantage of these opportunities, the Bow Waves Careers At Sea Expo will showcase the range of careers available to people, and how to gain entry into the field.
The expo will feature informative talks by several different speakers with professional experience of working at sea. The talks will cover a wide range of career opportunities including; crewing and skippering of offshore vessels, super yacht skippering and crewing, instructing, charter industry, deckhands, and the wide range of job opportunities in the cruise ship industry.
Each talk will be approximately 20 minutes in length and will outline how each speaker got started in their line of work, the speakers’ professional experience, any pitfalls they encountered and how to avoid them.
Each speaker will outline what training they required for their jobs, and Bow Waves will make a presentation on the relevant training courses that they run from their centre in Galway. There will be a question and answer session with each speaker following their talk, and the Bow Waves team will be on hand to answer any questions or queries regarding the training that they provide, as well as providing career guidance.
The evening will be invaluable for anyone considering a career change or working abroad, and is open to everyone. You do not need any experience of the marine sector or boating to attend. Tickets for the evening cost €10. To reserve your space phone Barry on 091 560 560 or e-mail [email protected].
