The event has been organized for the past six years and as a result of its success, it is taking place again this year in order to bring together career counselors, secondary school students, university students, unemployed graduates and professionals in one forum. In this context, distinguished professionals and academics from the Marine and Maritime industry will present their different disciplines by delivering presentations where they will highlight the specific qualifications required, the duties and responsibilities that each discipline entails, as well as the future employment and career development opportunities.
