Maybe of interest to some from January’s Seaways but also found here: http://www.videotel.co.uk/news/articles/careers_how_do_we_choose
Cynically I like:
“We want young people to have all the facts, presented in an honest and balanced way, to allow them to make their choice.”…do that and then they will never go to sea!
“The industry should make clear facts available to careers advisers, parents and pupils and not try to hide the less favourable aspects of the job.”…what, like all of it?
“Your best assets in helping the right young people choose the sea, are your current junior officers and cadets? – look after them!”…that seems to be going against the grain.
“Don’t just tell yarns about the good old days…”…but isn’t that what starts the fire of desire in the first place?
