After graduating from the maritime academy in 2010 I sailed several years in AMO then went offshore and worked for a drilling company for few more years. I’m working as a port engineer now but the office lifestyle and having to work year round is getting old and I’m thinking about sailing again. If I do sail again I would either join MEBA or AMO. When I joined AMO out of school it wasn’t because I had a preference for them, I just wanted to work and they happened to be the first organization to get me a job. Are there any actively sailing MEBA or AMO members here who can tell me the current availability of work? I know a few years ago the unions were hurting for engineers because everyone was jumping ship to work in the oilfield. I would imagine a lot of these people went back to the unions when oil prices fell though. Thanks for any replies.
