Boating Industry Canada’s Newsweek Continues Free Career Opportunity Postings

The number one click-through rate on Boating Industry Canada’s well-read website and in our weekly electronic newsletter, Newsweek is for the Career Opportunities column.

In the spring, many businesses need to staff up for the season. As a benefit to our readers and to the industry, Boating Industry Canada will run your Career Opportunity job postings for free!

All we ask is that you please follow the format [below] and later, let us know when the position is filled so we can remove the ad.

There are significant shortages of experienced and qualified people who are seeking work in our industry. To attract good people, offer a good opportunity. Advertise the job widely. As good as our readership is, the right person might come from outside the industry. Within the industry, network to find the best people and also be patient.

Newsweek was Canada’s first weekly electronic newsletter for the Marine industry and after more than 8 years of leadership, Newsweek still carries the most stories and the most pertinent information for our Canadian readers. Our weekly circulation is 5500 and consistently, our “open rate” has been approximately 22% percent every week.

We wish you good luck in finding the right people and we remind the industry, it’s easier to keep top talent than it is to replace it!

All we ask is that the wording of your advertisement be supplied in the format seen below:

1.    Position available or job title

2.    Location of work

3.    Describe the type and scope of work

4.    Minimum qualifications required and compensation offered

5.    Contact information for candidates to respond

To have your Career Opportunity posted in Newsweek, email Andy Adams at
