Short Maritime Jobs FAQ
Why is gCaptain getting into the job market?
Currently the market is scattered among several maritime job site s making it difficult and time consuming to find the latest offerings. We have received many emails asking if a one-stop-shopping solution exists and, up till now, the answer was no.
We shall do this by providing the best tools available, leveraging collaboration and supporting existing job services (even those of our competitors) to meet our primary goal; strengthening the maritime industry by helping the best candidates find the best jobs.
Will mariners be charged for this service?
In the future we may charge for premium features that require us to spend time helping individual job seekers but the basic service is and will remain free.
Can maritime employers or recruiters post jobs?
Why are you launching this service now?
The mariner shortage has not been alleviated by the current economic crisis, scraping of ships or decline in the price of oil.
