How To Keep A Job










Look... there’ll be boats where you can show interest, dedication
and a willingness to work hard, and it may seem like it’s for naught.
It may seem as if things are stacked against you. But to give things
a chance, a positive attitude will be necessary. There may be times
where you’ll have to grin and bear it.












You may get aboard a boat where you’re very happy because you’re
worked in a fair and decent manner. You’re taught things when you
show an interest in learning. The pay is good. There are many
boats like this out there, just as there are difficult boats out there.
Sometimes it’s luck. There are boats with fair and decent
commanding officers… and there are boats with weird chemistry
where it seems the whole crew should seek mental health
counseling.

Don’t automatically assume it’s you and lose morale. Just do your
job. There’ll be times that no matter how positive you are, you’re
going to run into people who don’t want to be friends. Think back
about being in grade school… didn’t you need reassuring from time
to time from your mother that you’re okay. Some people will see you
as a threat to their job security. Some people will resent you
because you came to this website and found your job for free, while
they paid a lot of money to someone who preys off hard working
mariners looking for work.

Conducting yourself in a positive and professional manner will help
you make it through the day and increase your chances for surviving
in a difficult industry. And if you’re patient and a little lucky, you could
ultimately wind up on a boat you love to work on, with a crew you
bond with and a promising career path for which you’re happy to
work hard and study hard. Good luck.
