Alright, I know this has probably been asked, but I didn’t see anything recent. I’ll be graduating soon with a degree in Geology, so I don’t plan on going back to a 4 year school any time soon. However, I would love to work on tankers or container ships. What is the best way to go about getting an entry level OS job or similar? I know about the TWIC and MMC and plan to look at getting those soon, but what past that? I’ve heard things about the Piney Point Unliscenced Apprentice Program, anyone know much about that? Would it be possible to get a job without this sort of thing? (I’d imagine not for someone with no nautical experience)
I guess, what is the best way to get my foot into the industry? I don’t have any current experience that is non-academic, but I would love to get some.
