Massachusetts Maritime Academy - Networking for a Job at Mass Maritime Academy Admissions - Networking for a Job at Mass Maritime Academy

Last week over 150 employers from 78 organizations participated in MMA’s semi-annual career fair. The employers represented various industries that hire cadets from shore-side and sea-going majors.

Clean Harbors Athletic Center was full of energy, as employers and cadets met and exchanged information. This was a great opportunity for cadets to network with companies who hire MMA cadets and a chance for employers to showcase their organizations. While there was a large contingent of folks who loyally participate in our fair every year, there were a number of companies new to MMA. Anyone who attended surely recognized that many MMA alumni return to campus for this event, now as employers. They know what they’re getting when they hire our cadets and graduates.

A survey of the Class of 2012 showed that of those with jobs, 54% reported starting salaries between $50-75,000. Twenty-seven percent reported a starting salary above $75,000. With those salaries and the strong employer relationships MMA develops and maintains, the Class of 2013 should feel optimistic about their job search.
