Well, I was looking for a job at sea last year when the Railroad found me first. I became a conductor for CSX and all was well until the economy took a dump. I have my MMD and will be getting my TWIC ASAP.
My question is do I have a chance of finding anything at all at sea in this economy and where should I start my search? Would it be possible to find anything with just an MMD and no training or should I seek some basic training of some sort first?
Im also hoping my time at the Railroad helps and not hinders my job finding. I know some companies will see Railroader on furlough and pass knowing he will return to the railroad as soon as the call to return to work comes. Anywhere else I might but I wanted a sailing job way before I found the Railroad.
Aw well, Here we go again!
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!
