Finally a member of AMO, what now?

So I’ve sailed for about 6 years on deep sea vessels with a private non union company. Quit that and now have sailed 90 days with AMO and am a full member. My job was a temporary assignment and won’t be returning.

So what now? Contact dispatcher and ask for work? Reach out to companies directly and try to get hired? Take a job off the board? Not really sure the best plan of action. Hold my 2nd mate, security clearance, PIC, DP basic, Med PIC. I finally feel I’m where I want to be but looking for that next step forward. Any guidance appreciated!


I think Crowley currently has job postings for tanker 3rd mates and current AMO members likely have preference.
