The Rhode Island Marine Trades Association and the IYRS School of Technology and Trades will host the ninth annual Marine & Composites Industry Career Day on March 22.

Free to the public, the event will draw industry experts and employers who come with one goal in mind: to connect with people who have the skills and aptitude for marine and composites careers.

Attendees will have an opportunity to meet employers from throughout New England and New York, including builders of boats and composites structures, manufacturers, boatyards and marinas, and marine service providers.

The event includes two seminars — one on winning job-search tactics and one on the evolving state of marine technology and its skills requirements. New this year is a training center, where attendees can learn how to gain the in-demand skills to launch careers in these two industries.

Career Day will run from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Newport campus of the International Yacht Restoration School.
