The International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) will host a Career Day on March 24th from 9 am to 1 pm at the IYRS campus on lower Thames Street in Newport.
Career Day is a free job and career-exploration fair that draws employers who come to this annual event with one goal in mind: to connect with individuals with the skills and aptitude for careers in the marine-trades and composites industries. This is a valuable opportunity to meet employers from throughout the region and learn about job opportunities and training programs.
A presentation on “Navigating Your Job Search” and guided tours of the IYRS facilities begin at 9 am; the career fair portion of the day begins at 9:30 am.
Career Day is hosted by IYRS and the Rhode Island Marine Trades Association, Composites Alliance of Rhode Island, and Polaris MEP.
