Happy Day of the Seafarer 2015!
This year the International Maritime Organization is focussing on the theme maritime education. But not just formal education, but educating the general public about what a career at sea looks like.
While most people go to work at an office, local business, factories, etc., but a career at sea is a whole different story.
The IMO is hoping the campaign shows how the multi-faceted maritime world offers a series of rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore.
To participate, the IMO wants you to head to social media and share your experiences using the campaign hashtag #CareerAtSea.
You can also learn more about the IMO Maritime Ambassador Scheme, launched by IMO to to promote the maritime and seafaring professions and raise awareness of the positive benefits of choosing a career at sea or other maritime profession.?
So tell us, why did you choose a career at sea?
