Hello I am a recent graduate of California Maritime Academy, and I have been applying to many subsea engineering positions. I have even created a linkedin and added hr subsea members. I haven’t been having any luck. I have noticed that many of the subsea trainee people who are hired are usually people who have been in the company for a couple of years as an oiler or deckhand. I feel my qualifications as a mechanical engineer with a third engineering lic might be more qualified. Is it impossible to get a subsea trainee job without knowing someone in the industry? If anyone who can help me get in touch with someone who is looking for a recent graduate for a subsea trainee position, I would appreciate any feedback, networking, or advise.
