Interactive employment portal connects marine industry employers with qualified candidates

Minneapolis — The Marine Retailers Association announces the launch of its interactive career center, the MRAA Rewards Career Center. With its focus on marine dealers, the MRAA Rewards Career Center offers its members — and the marine industry at large — an easy-to-use and highly targeted resource for online employment connections.  

“Helping our members fill open positions and strengthen their workforce has become the No. 1 priority of our efforts for the foreseeable future,” explains Matt Gruhn, president of MRAA. “This Career Center, along with the approach of collaborating with other leading associations is already proving to be an incredibly effective method for addressing the growing workforce crisis in the marine industry.”

Both MRAA members and non-members can use the MRAA Rewards Career Center to reach qualified candidates. Employers can post jobs online, search for candidates based on specific job criteria and create an online resume agent to email candidates with matching profiles daily. Employers also benefit from online reporting that provides job activity statistics.

For job seekers, the MRAA Rewards Career Center is a free service that provides access to employers and jobs in the marine industry. In addition to posting their resumes, job seekers can browse and view available jobs based on their needs and save those jobs for later review. Job seekers can also create a search agent to provide email notifications of opportunities that match their requirements.

An added benefit for both employers and job seekers is access to the Marine Industry Career Network, a group of five top marine associations and professional organizations — including the American Boat and Yacht Council, National Marine Manufacturers Association, National Marine Distributors Association, Boating Industry magazine and the MRAA. The MICN was built exclusively for professionals working within the marine industry to provide an effective online recruitment method on a single network.

Advertise at your MICN partner of choice and your advertisement will automatically be listed on all MICN Partner Career Centers at no extra charge! Visit to learn more.
