I am an engineering license student at SUNY Maritime. This winter I expect to have a lot of free time on my hands. I want to use my time to the best of my ability. I have no skills at being an engineer and am about as useless as can be. I live in Astoria, Queens and am looking for an internship.

Does anyone know how I can get an internship on a SLUDGE TANKER in New York City?
Or perhaps the Staten Island Ferry?

Spending my winter in an engine room would help me gain some skills.

I have a TWIC and MMC, along with VPSD cert, and Basic/Advanced FF, Survival at Sea.

My plan is to either Winter Cadet Ship/ Intern on the Staten Island Ferry/ Intern for NY DEP Sludge Tanker.

I would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.

Talk to Merideth Johannson or the lady in the Career Center. Also the Career Fair is coming up soon.
