Every year the United States celebrates National Maritime Day recognizing one of America's most important industries.There are four sectors of the maritime industry that offer both land based and seagoing jobs. We used all of our SMART social media platforms to focus on each sector throughout the week. Shipbuilding/repair, port operations, vessel operations, and emerging technologies. We featured posts about careers in each sector, stories or videos related to each sector, as well as posts explaining types of vessels, and about pre-apprenticeship opportunities. Using our social media platforms to reach a variety of audiences and it also allows us to share what our industry partners are doing.  Please make sure to follow or like us on social media!
