What is a 4th to do?
I had been working for three years as an oiler before upgrading my ticket to 4th class marine engineering. I was lucky enough to slide right into a position with the same company and worked as a 4th class for a year before they decided to lay everyone off.
Work seems to be scarce right now for 4th classes so I wanted to see what my options are. Where can I go with my ticket? Are there non-marine applications I can use my ticket towards? I hear lots about power engineering but all my experience is tankers where the closest I got to steam was the boilers. ( I worked as a third there due to the motor size so the boilers where my responsibility ) I am located on the east coast of canada but willing to go anywhere.
I am really just not sure what to do or where to turn. The marine field has dried up (joke intended) so hopefully someone here knows something that can help me out. Thanks!
