Recruitment made easier for marine industry

EDGEWATER, Md. – A virtual matchmaker in the form of a job posting that makes recruitment easier for the marine industry has been added to the Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology’s Web site,, the school said in a recent release.

This free service is provided for Westlawn students and for the marine industry, and serves to match highly trained students with dynamic employers. Firms with positions in design, management, production, purchasing, or any other aspect of the marine industry are invited to post these open positions on, and can e-mail with their job listings.

If you have a job opening, Westlawn would like to help you fill it.”
