There is a fee of $350 which includes a lunch and a reception. (Fee is waived for non-profit and armed services)

Do you limit  how many company representatives we may bring?
Because space is limited, we suggest three maximum. 

What is the schedule of events?
Representatives typically begin arriving just before 2:00 for the campus tour and Career Services information session. You are welcome to set up your booth at 3:00 and have a snack in the gym before the cadets start arriving at 4:00 pm. The cadets will visit exhibits, speak with you, perhaps submit a resume and possibly set up an interview. If you wish to reserve an interview space for the following day, please let us know in advance. Communication needs to be directly with the student regarding all interview scheduling, conflicts and changes. Be sure you have a way to contact the student when setting up an interview.

How many students should we expect?
Massachusetts Maritime Academy has 1650 students enrolled pursuing seven different majors. Students, alumni, faculty and staff are invited to participate in this event. You can expect to talk to both seniors looking for employment and underclassmen gathering information for co-op and commercial shipping experiences.

How much space will I have?
Each company will have a 6 foot table with a table cloth. Space is limited so free-standing table top displays seem to work best. Power is NOT available. If you choose to use a laptop, please be sure you have a fully charged battery. WiFi is available in the gym!

Can we ship our display and/or materials to you in advance?
Yes, we would be happy to receive your display materials and have them waiting at your table when you arrive. Our shipping address is:
