2020 AMC Careers Exhibition

The Australian Maritime College Careers Expo for 2020

Given the uncertainty with COVID-19 and in light of increasing challenges posed by travel restrictions, a decision has been made to postpone the AMC Careers Expo planned for 18 and 19 March. The health and well-being of our industry guests and the AMC community are a priority.
The Careers Expo is an important event on the AMC calendar so we will reschedule this event to a date later in the year and will provide an update once more details are known. In the meantime, if you have information on career opportunities which you would like to circulate to our students then please send this through. As you can imagine, our AMC students are disappointed they are missing this opportunity to speak with you.
Thank you for your continued support of AMC and our students and we do look forward to seeing you at this event later in the year.
Should have any questions concerning the event please do not hesitate to contact us on 03 6324 9422

Wednesday 18th & Thursday 19th March 2020

The AMC Careers Expo provides an opportunity for national and international employers to meet current AMC students and to demonstrate the career opportunities available.

We are proud to be presenting students who have key skill sets sought out by industry in the following areas:

  • Maritime Engineering
  • Global Logistics and Maritime Management
  • Ocean Seafaring
  • Coastal Seafaring (Vocational Education and Training)

AMC students across all study areas are given time off class on Thursday to attend the expo, and attendance at the industry presentations are strongly encouraged on Wednesday.

There is no registration fee for this event, however accommodation, travel and equipment costs are the responsibility of your organisation.
