RE: Employment opportunities.
Good day Sir,
I recently completed STCW-95 certificates at Unicorn shipping, my passport is in order and I am ready to go immediately.
I have done contracting for the last 8 years and I am accustomed to the life style. I am very serious about my career and would like to point out that I am not interested in a “quick buck” and I always see a contract through. I do my very best every day and try to live a disciplined life.
I am interested in finding a challenging position in the oil industry. I grew up on the east coast of South Africa and although never in a professional capacity, spent a considerable time at sea. Although I have no experience in the oil industry, I will start anywhere and do anything.
My CV, certificates and passport copy is enclosed for your information. I would like to bring to your attention the particular experiences and skills I can offer a potential employer.
