N.C. Ferry Division’s Hatteras career fair draws hundreds

Hundreds of people from all over Eastern North Carolina attended the N.C. Ferry Division’s first career fair Friday, March 1 at the Hatteras Village Civic Center.

“It was a huge success,” said Ferry Division director Harold Thomas said at the time. “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.

The Ferry Division also participated in Hyde County School System’s Public Safety Career Fair at Mattamuskeet Early College High School in Swan Quarter March 4 and on March 14 will participate in Carteret Community College’s Career Fair at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City.
