I am new here. Fantastic forum by the way. As the title say, I am from Spain, just finished my Maritime College studies to work at Merchant Marine.
The problem I’m facing now is to find the 1st job on board, which It is being quiet difficult for now. It seems that the fact of being spanish is an impediment to get into some companies.
I have sent my CV to several companies but for now I have not received any answer. I am 24 years old btw and got some STCW certificates such as ARPA, ECDIS, basic safety training, GMDSS, etc.
What can I do? Any advice would be appreciated.
Should I change the strategy of applying for jobs in orden to get better results?
Thanks a lot in advance and greetings from the spanish land.
