IYRS to hold annual career day


The International Yacht Restoration School's fifth annual Marine Industry Career Day is set for March 6 in Newport, R.I.

This year, IYRS has broadened the scope of the event beyond current career opportunities and will look toward the future with a special presentation by marine technology expert Nigel Calder, who will talk about green technological advances on the horizon for the global marine industry.

"Technology in our world is changing so rapidly. We wanted Career Day to be a valuable opportunity for education - to help career seekers stay ahead of the curve by learning about advances in marine technology from a leading expert, and about the career opportunities that will emerge as a result," said Susan Daly, vice president of marketing for IYRS, in a statement.

The one-day event is free to the public. Career Day will draw some 20 marine companies from throughout New England.
