I currently have my 100t inland and, will have my AB(special), STCW, and life boatman(already finished) when I’m done with training at MPT mid next month. My question is what is the best way to put my self out there to get a job. I would preferably get a job on a OSV in the gulf, but I’m not really very picky as long as the pay is decent and I’m logging alot of sea time. My experience is mainly from working on and off as a mate on a research vessel, I almost have enough time to upgrade AB special to limited and my 100t inland to near coastal. My plan right now is to apply online to companies when I get my credentials back from the uscg, then go to the gulf and ask around the docks. Is this the right plan, any suggestions welcomed.
