The Australian Maritime Careers Exhibition for 2019

The 2019 Careers Exhibition is being held on the 14th and 15th of March, featuring students who are excited and ready to launch their degree and passion into a career. The AMC Careers Exhibition is designed to provide an opportunity for national and international employers to meet current students of the College, but also for industry to demonstrate the career opportunities available.

We are proud to be presenting students who have key skill sets sought out by industry in the following areas:

  • Maritime Engineering
  • Maritime Business and International Logistics
  • Ocean Seafaring
  • Coastal Seafaring (Vocational Education and Training)

The AMC Students across all study areas are given time off class on the Friday to attend the exhibition, and the industry presentations are strongly encouraged on the Thursday. There is no registration fee for this event, however accommodation travel and equipment costs are the responsibility of your organisation.

Registrations for this event close Friday 15th February, registration forms are available here.
