Careers at Sea website


#1

The Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) [a UK organization] has launched a new Careers at Sea website www.careersatsea.org

I am not sure how this differs from our drive to recruit young people here to go to sea, but some of the points they make surely help make this enticing:

  • you are paid while you learn (not only do they [the sponsoring company] pay for your tuition, they also pay a [pittance?] salary, but money nonetheless).

  • you get the chance to travel the world at someone
    else’s expense (See the world…sounds good to me!)

  • time off is measured in weeks and months not just days

  • your days are challenging and rewarding

  • you can quickly gain responsibility and a salary to match

  • there is a lifetime of personal development opportunities
