What a maritime career can look like
The Blue Denmark needs more young people who want to complete a maritime education. Therefore, Maritime Network Frederikshavn holds Maritime Careers Day at Frederikshavn Harbor on May 23 for the second consecutive year.
"We want to present the whole palette of possibilities that a maritime education can contain. Both in the office, in production and in the service department. We have many exciting maritime jobs in Frederikshavn with a global perspective and good career opportunities for both girls and boys, and we want to give our local young people and their parents an insight into this world. Many may not know but the salary for employees in the Blue Denmark, which is called the maritime industry, is actually significantly higher than the average salary," says Christina Ørskov from Orskov Yard, who is in MNF's board of directors.
During the day, you will be able to look closer at the school ship Danmark and one of the Armed Forces ships, and there is maritime action with fire exercises where you can try a smoke dive track or a free-fall boat. There is also the opportunity to meet a wide range of maritime educations at the port, where the participants will be served barbecue sausages.
"We have people standing ready at the entrance to pier 3, who bids people welcome and handles maps with information about which companies are open and times for the shuttle bus and so on. We hope to have a big meeting of interested youngsters and parents who will peek into the possibilities of the maritime profession," says Christine Lunde, Managing Director of MARCOD and secretary of MNF.
