Been checking them often for a couple of years now and this is what I’ve found:
RigZone: by far the best with the most GoM jobs but still a huge number of foreign jobs which they do not want Americans to fill. I have also found that many of the listing you do reply to, you never hear boo back from anyone. Still it is my number one to check every day.
[li]Maritime Employment: Used to be the big dog for offshore jobs but in the last year has really gone downhill in its listings. I just looked at it after a week and all that was new has a hairdresser’s job, some mate’s job in Aquaba, a bunch of yacht managment positions and a lonely 100ton master in Whittier AK and a QMED in Steilcoom WA. I’ve pretty much given up on that sight.[/li][li]Marine Jobs: There is painfully little new there[/li][li]Maritime Job Search: lot of shore engineering positions but occasionally a seagoing offshore job from companies like Helix yet little else (btw, has anyone ever hear back from Helix here)[/li][li]Oil Offshore Marine: lots and lots of great offshore vessel jobs with companies like Acergy but they’re almost exclusively for Europeans.[/li][li]Mass Maritime’s Job Board: kudos to them for making the listings they receive to all mariners, not just graduates[/li][li]Cal Maritime Job Listings: used to post a shipload for all mariners but it appears to be just that “used to”[/li][/ol]I’ll post a few others in a bit, but wanted to get this tread started to see what others think.
