These pages and links can be of interest to anyone looking to learn more about
labor opportunities and marine employment aboard commercial vessels. Keep in
mind there are maritime jobs out there you won’t ever see posted on company
websites or job databases like or As in any industry,
many jobs in the marine industry are filled by word of mouth, by people moving up
the ladder, or reserved for in-house apprenticeship paths. Naturally, the more
contacts and larger a network you have, the better your chances of landing a good
job….which is kind of obvious.

But still…even if you don’t have an uncle who’s a dispatcher for a tugboat
company or a cousin who runs an excursion boat, there are many places to look
for maritime employment. There may be fewer deep water merchant marine jobs
than in the decades following World War II, but there are positions and jobs out
there…..on the offshore, inland, and river waterways of the United States,
including the Great Lakes. The cruise industry has grown immensely in the past
decade, with some cruise ships now operating under the U.S. flag.

Marine employers regularly solicit resumes for captains, mates, engineers, oilers,
able seamen, deckhands, QMED, cooks, stewards, fish processors and other
positions, but the availability of jobs changes with demand. Opportunities arise
aboard tugboats, towboats, research vessels, riverboats, ferries, water taxis,
yachts, excursion boats, casino boats, cruise ships, survey vessels and fishing
vessels, to name a few.

These maritime jobs vary in licensing and experience requirements, ranging
from unlicensed positions to requirements for 100 ton, 200 ton, 1600 ton, and
unlimited tonnage or unlimited horsepower licenses for master, mate, and
engineer positions. Some employers seek Coast Guard mate’s licenses, or
mates of towing vessel licenses, 200 gross tons or greater, or Coast Guard
master’s licenses, or master of towing vessel licenses, 200 tons or greater. The
work schedules may vary, from full-time, part-time to seasonal marine
employment. Some employers may require a merchant mariner’s document, or
“Z” Card and STCW 95 endorsement, while others might not have requisites of
any kind.

Below and to the right is a small incomplete list of marine transportation
companies that post maritime jobs on their websites. Directly below are tugboat
and towboat positions sought by employers. They are positions the companies
may recruit for on a regular basis…or that may have been seen recently on the
sites of tug and barge companies. Some marine employers do not collect
unsolicited resumes…but rather, respond to candidates applying for a particular
position. I hope this information is helpful to mariners and others interested in
learning more about labor and employment on the water.
