The Marine Industries Association of South Florida’s video series highlighting marine industry jobs and careers, Salty Jobs, won the Bronze Telly Award for Social Video in the category of education and discovery — specifically for the episode showcasing Resolve Maritime Academy.

The series, which is now entering its fourth season, features young co-hosts who depict a hands-on look at marine industry jobs, while trying them out themselves.

“Salty Jobs has really become a model for how to communicate job opportunities and career paths to middle school and high school students, young adults, and anyone looking for an exciting career with great benefits,” said MIASF vice president Lori Wheeler in a statement. “The short, five-minute videos capture and keep your attention and are full of relevant salary and education information. They have been an excellent method for connecting with people and we are honored to receive this important recognition from The Telly Award judges.”
