My aim is to take on a challenging role in an industry where I can advance my career and achieve my goal of being a valuable contributor within the marine and maritime industry.
I would like to secure a position with a company that is willing to give me this opportunity and in return I will become an effective and integral member of that team.
The marine industry caught me by surprise. Throughout my secondary schooling, I never considered a career in such an industry; instead I focused my studies on a career in information technology. I found that this was not the challenge that I was looking for and so I took the drastic step of moving from an office job and throwing myself in the deep end by joining a team on a Cray fishing vessel. I love the marine life style and would never look back.
Aiming towards working on offshore support vessels sparked my career change to something I never imagined would be of such interest to me, so in order to achieve the objectives I want in life I qualified for marine certifications, presenting myself as a strong candidate to future employers in the industry.
