Women Offshore's Career Development Program Emerges Women into Meaningful Careers in the Maritime & Offshore Industries

Women Offshore is seeking motivated women+ to submit their application for our Career Development Program.

Currently open to US citizens, the Women Offshore Foundation Career Development Program will take applicants through a 1-month personal development series that will ask tough questions to determine suitability for an exciting career in the maritime or offshore industries.

Once accepted into the program, candidates will build a roadmap to success with our program coordinator. The program will cover costs associated with obtaining entry level credentials.

While this program is only open to US citizens currently, the Women Offshore Foundation is looking to expand the program to recruit and support women+ careers in other countries.
