Maritime Career Portal
MARCOD has developed a maritime career portal for young people in the region
www.maritimecareer.dk. You can find information about the maritime educational opportunities and employment opportunities in an easily accessible manner as well as watch short movies about what it is like to work in the maritime industry.
Moreover, you can take a survey and find out which maritime education fits your profile. The portal is developed by young people and the written content is made with the purpose of communicating to a young target audience.
"It is about explaining the opportunities in a pragmatic way in order for young people to gain a better understanding of what the industry has to offer and that vocational educations can lead to exciting and well-paid jobs", Christina Ørskov says, owner of Orskov Yard in Frederikshavn and president of Maritime Network Frederikshavn with approximately 60 members.
"I think it is important that the young people see how an ordinary day looks like at a workplace - what we work with and see the connection between the practical and the theoretical", Nikolaj Smedegaard says, industrial technician apprentice at MAN Energy Solutions in Frederikshavn.
