REASONS TO WORK AT SEA - Employment
Although modern ships spend less time in port than 25 years ago, a career in shipping still means that you can literally travel to almost anywhere in the world. This gives seafarers the chance to experience interesting and unusual places, rather than just the typical business or holiday destinations visited by many people.
Since shipping is such a unique international industry, it is common for seafarers to progress eventually to shore based work in shipping offices all around the world - from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, to Singapore or London, the opportunities are endless.
By embarking on a career in shipping you are joining a special international network of contacts and associates.
