We arranged the categories
of maritime jobs as follows
:
Jobs on Large Cargo Ships
Jobs on Tugboats, OSVs,
& Pushboats
Jobs on Ferryboats
and Fast Ferries
Jobs on Government Vessels
Jobs on Cruise Ships
Jobs on Yachts
& Megayachts
Jobs in Commercial Fishing
Jobs in Shipyards

Many maritime jobs are posted. This includes jobs on ships, jobs on tugboats,
jobs on ferryboats and fast ferries. But some jobs are not posted because of the
nature of the vessel. Privately owned yachts don’t necessarily have a website the
way the Washington State Ferry system does. And privately owned crab boats that
work the Bering Sea out of Dutch Harbor, Alaska do not necessarily have their
own websites listing openings for “greenhorns’ or “full share crab fishermen”.
You can visit the website of the New York City Department of Transportation if you
wanted a job as an engineer aboard the Staten Island Ferry in New York. But what
if you wanted a job on a lobster boat out of Massachusetts or Maine?

Well, some maritime jobs will require a network, which is a fancy word for the
circle of people you know. If there’s a family run boat and you know someone who
knows someone else who is friends with the mate on a cod boat, it could help.
There are other types of networks also…those of maritime employment agencies.
Although we will tell you that you can find many maritime jobs for free, there are
some you will not find. We’re not contradicting what we said above. If you are
interested in finding a maritime job without spending a penny, you can do so here.
But it doesn’t hold true for every type of maritime job. Some maritime jobs will
require that you meet a maritime employment recruiter or crewing agency. That’s
the way it works in some sectors. If that’s the case, we can’t take the place of a
reputable recruiter. However, we offer plenty of stones to turn over and search
under in this site.

Good luck in your search!
