I have been trying trying (without much luck) to get a job as an OS here in the US, and I noticed that forum members often recommend aspiring DPO’s to apply for jobs in “undesirable” places if they can’t get a job in the Gulf. Does this advice apply to an OS as well? If so, how do I find the companies working in these areas? I’ve been applying to jobs for a few months with no response, so any other tips on how to get started in the maritime industry would be appreciated as well. Thanks.
