It has come that time to follow my lifetime calling and begin my career on the water
. I'm 26 y/o male with no experience... yet
After much research
I have decided yacht deliveries would suit my ideal lifestyle best, starting as a deckhand
. My question is what is the best way to make myself stand out from all the other newbies trying to get an in.
My plan is to get my stcw 95 asap (1st Oct) and volunteer as much as I can to get my miles up while trying to find a job.
I am hoping someone can give me some insight on how to stand out from the crowd and look more appealing to a potential employer and specifically what extra courses etc I should consider.
