to travel and experience different ways of life and off-shore work sounds

possible. This is the first link I have been given that provides such
concise information. many, many thanks.
you for your most kind concern vis-a-vis my overseas job search in the
camp management field. I have had some positive response from DynCorp
Technical Services. They had me tagged for an Afghanistan site manager
slot if the DOD signed the contract.
didn't sign...the Army took the job over. They also have me on a "Letter
of Commitment" for a government project they are bidding on in Latin
America IF they are the winning bidder on the project. If, If and If.
than that and the fact I am not yet working overseas, the job search is
You mentioned in your last email letter to me that with my background,
however dated, there should be job offers. Anything you can recommend

for asking about the "latest".
lead has been with Pride International for work overseas. I would much
prefer work overseas due to the fact I don't live close to the GOM and
companies aren't willing to pay airfare. Pride actually contacted me by
phone after I had sent my resume to them so at least they seemed interested.
sent an Addendum to my resume which shows cranes, max. tonnage, winches,
tuggers, equipment, companies and contacts, etc. It's 5 pages but many
companies seem to want full info right up front. This really seemed to
help get me further notice.
have 2 new semisubs being finished up in Portland, Maine and eventually
will be working offshore Brazil. I actually got a tour of them last weekend
with a group of Naval Engineers. That was great and I let my contact at
Pride know that I took advantage of this.
rig won't be on sea trials till Fall. Again, this seems most promising
at this point but I have no real commitment yet and it's a waiting game.
I have sent my cover letter, resume, addendum to resume, and copies of
certificates to what seems like countless companies with no response except
from Pride International and Atwood Oceanics.
I know that I may be limited since I may not be able to take a job in
the Gulf of Mexico but I don't say that in my cover letter. It's very
frustrating that very few of the recruiters or human resource people at
these companies seem to answer their phone. I begin to think I sound like
a broken record! I do know that you and others have said it's very
have my resume on Rigzone.com. I will tell you that I did get a
response from Oceaneering to work on a salvage ship for them as an AB.
I thought hard about it but declined because I worked as an AB for many,
many years and felt like it would be a step in the wrong direction for
me professionally. (Beginning to wonder if I made a mistake!)
from England contacted me last week and he had found my resume from your
site His name is Alister McCuaig. He was looking for a Crane Operator
for a barge in the United Arab Emirates - 90 days on 30 off. He needed
someone who has done heavy lift (400 ton) off barges. They are lifting
and placing modules into place. Needless to say he weeded me out but it
was good to speak with him.

a information packet from Tidewater Marine. It included a application.

Spokane, WA, USA
the contact list you sent is terrific. After 20+ hours searching the internet,
I was ready to go nuts. I was finding stuff on the oil industry, but not
actual contact information. Your list fixed all of that instantly. I am
finishing up some things for my current employer, which may take up to
2 weeks at which time I will aggressively pursue employment offshore as
that has become my dream.
sent out some feelers to the special services as well as the catering
companies. I will get back to you asap about my luck. I want it bad, so
as soon as I finish this website for my boss, (2 weeks) I will be in overdrive
pursuing a rig (0ffshore) job. Thanks for all your help
