I’m a woman entering into the License/Msc. at SUNY. I was researching that a 3rd mate makes 50,000-70,000 a year, is that correct? From others I hear 120,000. I just want to be sure that if I am investing money/time/physical energy that the longterm employment benefits are equal to the time spent getting it? I already have a master’s degree and I hope that this will be a smart investment for my future. I love traveling and wouldn’t mind working with cruise ships/yachts in the future.
I am slightly anxious about the cruises, how are they? Is it better to just get the Msc. or the Msc/License? I would like to hear about it. I also obtained statistics that only 3,900 americans have this License, so it must be in great demand.
