Going to be attending CMA starting this fall (unless something drastic happens to cause me to fail the physical), had a question and I figured any other newbies could use this thread to ask theirs as well.
What is there in the way of student employment? How competitive is it? If there isn’t much, how’s Vallejo for employing students?
Thanks in advance[/QUOTE]
Get a job on a tug. Get the experience. After your first semester, get with some of the teachers that teach the tug & barge course. The boat house usually has a couple jobs available. After your first semester you should have somewhat of a grasp on how to make your way around a boat. Try to take Industrial Safety the first semester. That will be a good stepping stone for you to get a job in the industry. They want to see that you have some sort of safety culture/knowledge which you do not at this time. Look into Oscar Niemeth Towing. Pay crappy but you get the experience you will need. Good luck.
