After reading the site for a while, it is obvious that there are many seasoned sailors out there to whom I would like to pose a question:
How do I get a deep sea job?
I’ve been perusing the various maritime employment websites, including the one here on gCaptain. There is only one 3/M job offered, and it’s only a partial sailing job – they also want you to spend time in the office. I have nothing against that, but it’s not what I want to do. I’ve earned my 3/M Unlimited license, and I want to sail on it for a while, hopefully earning my Master’s license in a bunch of years. But that’s hard to do if I can’t get my foot in the door.
So if anybody knows anyone who his hiring 3/Ms for deep sea work or works for a company who is looking for somebody, please let me know. I’d appreciate it.
