National, state and local maritime companies in Florida, along with maritime associations and partnerships are coming together to host a "Military to Maritime" career information day for current and former military personnel who may be interested in transitioning into a maritime-related field on June 4, 2014, in Jacksonville, Fla. at the Jaxport Cruise terminal.

Whether interested in a career ashore with one of the region’s leading transportation and logistics companies, or aboard one of the varied vessels in the capacity of a merchant mariner, event attendees will be given the opportunity to have questions answered; speak with hiring, licensing and union representatives; tour vessels and hear first-hand from current employees and crewmembers about maritime life.
