Ocean Careers is a three day event running alongside Ocean Business on 9 – 11th April, 2013 at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, UK.
The event provides career information within the ocean technology, marine science and offshore industry sectors. Graduates and students studying engineering, science or mathematics, as well as students that have already opted to study marine related subjects can learn more about the global career opportunities on offer in this vast, exciting, forward thinking and extremely diverse industry.
The industry has seen unprecedented and continued growth and a rapid development of technologies applied to ocean survey and research. Ocean Careers will help students realise how skills can be utilised, gain an understanding on what employers are looking for and find out more about grant funding schemes.
The event is made up of a combination of industry presentations from professionals in the industry and a series of one-on-one speedy meetings. The meetings are on a first come, first serve basis and provide industry experts and potential employees with the opportunity to meet face to face.
Ocean Careers is FREE to attend and runs alongside Ocean Business, the hands-on ocean technology exhibition and training forum. Ocean Business boasts an exhibition of over 300 companies, bringing the world’s leading manufacturers and service providers in the industry under one roof. Students and other attendees also get the unique chance to test-drive equipment and systems with over 180 hours of FREE training and demonstration sessions held on vessels at the dockside, in the test tank and in seminar rooms.
Marie Shipman, who manages the Ocean Careers event comments: “This is the third Ocean Careers to be held at Ocean Business and we are looking forward to a busy schedule. The event is a great opportunity to bring industry experts and employees together, whilst providing a great insight into the heart of industry at the Ocean Business event.
