N.C. Ferry Division’s inaugural career fair in Hatteras draws big crowd

Hundreds of people from all over eastern North Carolina attended the N.C. Ferry Division’s first career fair today at the Hatteras Village Civic Center.

“It was a huge success,” said Ferry Division Director Harold Thomas. “Not only did we greatly expand our pool of potential employees today, we strengthened the ties between the Ferry System and the communities it serves.”

Attendees were able to learn about several possible career paths in the Ferry Division, from traffic attendants and crew members to marine welders and captains. Many of the attendees filled out applications for future employment, while several were given conditional offers on site.

For those who were unable to attend today’s event, the Ferry Division is participating in two other career fairs this month: March 4 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. at the Hyde County School System’s Public Safety Career Fair at Mattamuskeet Early College High School in Swan Quarter, and March 14 at Carteret Community College’s Career Fair at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City.
