Marine Techniques Publishing

The Mariners Employment Guide, is the most comprehensive, credible and current resource available for anyone considering a maritime fresh and salt water career and/or advancement within an already established maritime career. “This book should be on the bookshelf of not only every active merchant mariner, but also in the libraries of every high school and every guidance counselors office in the country. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking employment or who is already employed in the merchant marine, says Captain John R. Whiteley, Director of the Inland Waterways Academy at Marshall Community and Technical College, Huntington, West Virginia.

Captain Tuuli Messer-Bookman, Esq., Associate Professor of the Marine Transportation Department of the California Maritime Academy, Vallejo, California, comments, “I referenced an early edition of The Mariners Employment Guide when I was a young cadet, just graduating Kings Point and hungry for a job. Now, twenty years later, I am impressed by the many improvements and enhancements made to this new edition, especially the excellent distillation of STCW and USCG requirements and clear information on career tracks. I have yet to find a more comprehensive or well organized marine employment guide anywhere. This book is an invaluable resource to anyone searching for or even just considering maritime employment. I heartily recommend this text to all maritime training centers, libraries, and high school counselors. As I work primarily with senior cadets at the California Maritime Academy, I will be recommending the Guide to my students as they begin their job searches. In a hats off to Pelletier, she adds, “You have really done an outstanding job and I commend your efforts.
