    Hi iv just had my contract from clyde and iv picked all offshore companies and sent it back, but now im having second thoughts that working on my small offshore vessel will make it near impossible to get onto the large container vessels and oil tankers because i don't know what im goin to be doing in a few years times. ( Im pretty sure im getting unlimited ticket)

    Hi and welcome to Officer Cadet.

    To answer your question... the company you complete your cadetship with doesn't really make a difference to your job hunting prospects on completion of the cadet ship. All cadets when they complete the cadetship have "no experience" so to speak so your all in the same boat. Obviously having sailed on a particular type of ship will give you a slight advantage since you should at least be familiar with the operation.

    I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the "Guidelines for Anonymous posts" ( located: )... as your post doesn't fit into one of these categories we encourage you to register - if you haven't already done so and join in one of the existing discussions on this topic.

    There are several existing threads regarding Clyde Marine company choices, the most recent one being;

    ?Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn?t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.?
