Christmas is a touchy subject for many mariners, many of us spend it thousands of miles away from our friends and families, which is fine, we know what we signed up for but I’ve met mariners that have not had a Christmas in home in 3 decades and never once sharing a christmas with their children, making my 6 years of no Christmases at home pretty trivial.
But for many mariners this time of year is a good time for finding extra work, be it temp work to cover the cost of a Christmas with a wife, 3 daughters and all with expensive taste or to start a new career with a new company because this year hasn’t bought them so much luck. But whatever the reason for seeking work might be there are limited avenues to explore as a mariner to get that work, this post is about an exciting new way to find and secure that Christmas temp job or full time new career.
