Greenhorn looking for work in around Southeast Asia


#1

Hi everyone,

new here. I’m 42 and had a silver jewelry business in Indonesia when the global economy wen’t South. Currently make $900 a month in a transitional employment situation. Hoping to earn an adult male wage at sea. No experience but willing to learn. Married my Balinese girlfriend of 3 years. We’ve been husband and wife since January. We’ll be having a a bouncing baby in June. Where should I look for work if I want to be in and around Southeast Asia, especially Indonesia/Bali?

Thanks,

Good Lord… whata question!

The hole story about jobs on board is about:

  1. Experience, (preferably onboard - experience),
  2. Certificates and qualifications, STCW - for a start,
  3. medical fitness (not much required but a med cert is a must)
  4. Schooling background
    etc

If you wanna answer to your question, you should provide more proffesional details about yourself, apart from your social, marital and parental status.

Go ahead! Dont be shy!

I would also be very interested in the answer to this question. I have been trying to find work outside of the USA, preferrably Asia, Australia, New Zealand, or Med but will go pretty much anywhere. I have unlimited chief mate, DPO unlimited, 1600 ton master, also sailing master 100 GT. Looking for work on a dive/construction/ROV boat since this is what I am doing now and like it. Or would like to try yachts. Trying to avoid tankers and drillships…
Appreciate any insights
Thanks
