Help gCaptain Help You - Upload your Resume

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to give you the heads up that today, on this historic day of February 22, we’ve launched a new job board to We’ve had one for a while but with this new software we’re bringing it to a whole new level and pushing it on employers HARD to post their jobs (I think there are enough people on here looking for employment).

One way you guys can help us is to upload your resume. I’m sure some of you are skeptical about giving out your info but to ease your concerns, here’s what happens when you register and upload with us.

First, we don’t under any circumstances give out your details, sell your info or anything shady like that. When and if you upload your resume, it will be placed in our resume bank. The bank is searchable by employers however does not give out your sensitive date ie your name or contact info (FYI don’t put your SSN or bank info anywhere). If any employer finds your resume fits the bill for a postion, a notification will be sent to you and it is not until you confirm that your contact info can be sent to the employer does the employer receive the contact info.

So, by uploading your resume you are really helping us out because the more resumes we have, the more employers we get, the more jobs get posted, the more opportunities you have etc. etc. Here are some links so you can get started.

I was given a choice to either upload resume or build a resume, I uploaded my resume, which was straight forward.
Then I was taken to the fill-in the blanks page, (or is it the “correct the blanks” page?) which is WAAAY too busy.
I finally surrenderd without finishing…

Please make choosing the US easier

To Whom It May Concern:

I am committed to finding a career where I can put my military skills and seagoing experience into practice.

I was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy after four years of experience. Because of my positive Navy experience, I would like to continue working in a large organization in the Maritime Industry. Being a Boatswain Mate in the Navy has prepared me for a disciplined, secure work environment and the challenges associated with unexpected events. I’m looking forward to using this experience for enhancing my knowledge and skills as a Mariner.

I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss possible employment. You can reach me at the above address or at (912) 574-0177.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely yours,

Samuel Mathis
