The NMMA said today that it launched the NMMA Career Center, a new tool to match recreational marine industry employers and potential employees.

Focused on the industry, the NMMA Career Center offers members — and the marine industry at large — an online, easy to use and highly targeted resource for employment connections, the National Marine Manufacturers Association said.

“We are excited to launch the NMMA Career Center and to be an active participant in the Marine Industry Career Network alongside several industry partners,” Robert Newsome, vice president of engineering standards, membership and association marketing for the NMMA, said in a statement. “Attracting skilled employees is a priority for marine manufacturers to ensure continued industry growth, and the MICN will help connect employers to a larger pool of candidates.”

The career network is a collaborative effort among marine trade associations and industry stakeholders, including the American Boat and Yacht Council, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Boating Industry magazine.

The network connects employers with a qualified workforce. Employers can manage job postings and search for candidates based on specific job criteria and benefit from online reporting that provides job activity statistics. Job seekers can view openings, post resumes and access career development resources.

The network was built exclusively for professionals working within the marine industry to provide an effective online recruitment method on a single network. Active NMMA members receive a 30 percent discount on all marine industry career network services.
