For those of you that have followed my post you know that I have been turning up every stone since December trying to find work :(. As of today I am gainfully employed and will be working on the Galveston Texas Ferries starting next week. It’s not the job I was expecting to find but I have to $top the bleeding and it will give me opportunity to upgrade.
I started this process in March 2008 renewing my license that was expired under the old system .
So here is my timeline:
March-Sept 2008, 30+K and 7 months STCW classes with no job :o
OCt-Nov 2008, 2 additional months waiting on our good friends at NMC and no job :rolleyes:
Dec 08-July 09, 7 more months looking for a job. I got 1 quick bout w/ job from hell :eek: but picked up 42 days of recency and needing 48 more.
July 2009 and I’m going to work.
I am very much looking forward to going back to work. Many thanks to all on here for your support.
