A little background is that I am an academy graduate with a 3rd Mates Unlimited license, along with all the cool acronyms for certifications accompanying it.
Responses to applications have been less than exciting, and while I have entertained a few different companies and have been offered a few opportunities with tugging, I have my sights set on Offshore Supply. I have a friend who lives in Louisiana and plan to fly down and stay there and make rounds for a couple of days applying in person.
With the market the way it is I would imagine this would be more valuable than a name on a resume coming through email. I plan to hit Chouest, Harvey, Tidewater, and Otto Candies while I’m down there and am simply looking for any information/recommendations anyone has that could be beneficial. Any other known companies in that general region would be appreciated as well.
