About 40 students who successfully took part in the meetings preparing themselves to interact with companies in the yachting world.
With the support of the Golden International Members, the foundation has launched a three-year strategy that aims to strengthen its impact both in the interest of companies in the sector and for students.
The strategy creates a strong link with the partners in order to design training courses based on the needs of the sector, develop courses for students who have a linear and rapid path in entering production processes, promote the professions of the sea, especially boating in schools by providing vocational guidance.
The purpose of the career-day was to encourage contact between students and leading companies in the sector through interviews in order to guide and make the internship period more profitable and pursue the goal of the ISYL Foundation in achieving 100% employment of students six months after graduation.
