Third Mate jobs

Does anyone know any companies hiring third mates? AMO/ MSC are pretty backed up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

sorry but nobody is hiring third mates now or ever will again in the future

I hate to have to break this news to you son, but you have joined a dying industry

What about 3rd A/E’s? Shoulda been an engineer?

Lots of places hiring them. Except they’re calling them deckhands…
