Seafarer Jobs

Seafarer Jobs or Jobs at ship is considered as a glamorous one, especially by young people. But they should know some unsaid things about life onboard ship.

 Seafarers come from all over the world, from different cultures and backgrounds, and work in diverse areas of the shipping industry.

 A Seafarer's Job or Jobs at ship is a hard and sometimes lonely life, without family and far from friends. A long way from home, cut off from normal life on shore for months, even years. Most seafarers stay 3 to 9 months on one vessel, depending on their contract.  

 Not in every port you'll find a phone booth to call your relatives, wife and children but fortunately nowadays there are mobile phones. However, if you're out of simcard-credit it's hard to get an up-grade because most ships stay ashore for just a few hours, so no way you can go shopping. It's a tough life and not without danger.

 All seafarers need to have good education and they need to have a lot of knowledge about their ship before they can come onboard to act in case of emergency.

 Entertainment onboard ship:

 Seafarer enjoys each others company off duty. Drinking alcohol and enjoying games of dice and cards, telling tales, playing musical instruments, carving, drawing and practicing knots are the main source of entertainment.

 

Nothing compares to the sight of moonlight reflecting on waves, sunrise and sunset from a ship.
