We’re spreading the word about careers in maritime.
72% of skilled trade workers are over the age of 45. Workers are aging, and when they retire, they will take a vast institutional knowledge with them. There aren’t enough prospects to step into those roles. The maritime industry is competing for the next generation of skilled labor.
The mission of Work the Waterfront is to increase awareness of job opportunities that exist along U.S. shorelines. Through Work the Waterfront, organizations can obtain cost-effective, impactful marketing assets to raise awareness about careers in our industry.
