Well, experience is something that grads always fall down on... Why not apply for one of the engineering positions, see what happens, gets you some experience under your belt to suppliment your degree...

"I haz degree and experiencez on da boat"

sounds better than

"I haz degree..."

on a CV

Hi Dave, just read the description for Offshore Source Mechanic Maintenance of compressors and seismic guns and mechanical equipment on board. I think this job would be well suited to me skills and experience. I served in the RAF for 6 and a half years. Could you look at my CV and give me some feedback please?

How much time do you spend away versus time at home? I'm guessing it's big stints away, then reasonable stints at home? Could be a good option to have 'in my back pocket' for a few months time..... 25 years in engineering, recently from superintendent to eng. manager, but in aviation.

It all depends on you really... You are expected to do 180 days away in a year, though in truth it seems to work out more around the 200 mark for most underwater engineers. You can ask for more days if you like, and the more days you do, the more you get paid per day, it goes up in brackets, and you get your basic salary on top. But yes, my work pattern thus far has been:

4 weeks away training
6 days at home
8 weeks away
3 weeks at home
I'm now on another 8 weeks away

But I WANT the extra days because I have debts that need shifting and new outgoings that need to be catered for, so a year hitting it hard is the order of the day for me.

When I applied and got offered the job, it was actually a few months before I started working for them, because the RAF wouldn't release me when they promised and decided to arse around instead. So, if you are interested, it might be worth writing up your CV and winging it off soon and seeing what happens. They seem to be happy to wait for the "right" people than to quickly employ the wrong ones.

Got your CV dude, I've had a look, it's good as it is. I changed the formatting very slightly, because when I opened it it was a bit all over the place (I think it's a compatibility thing) but other than that, no changes and straight to HR dude.

Best of luck mate!
