  • The Second Career

    Hello Crew!

    I am on the cusp of a career change and pursuing my dream as a Deck Officer in MN - you only get one life etc, etc....

    Thanks so much for all your contributions on this forum, it is a true goldmine for the uninitiated. Of note, i would love to hear from anyone who has done this as a second career. I am just about the right side of 40 and about to go back to uni. I cant quite work out if i am a life coach's wet dream or insane!

    cheers all!

    Plenty of guys having this as their second third fourth career! I’ve seen ages 16-55 trying to get their tickets, good luck!

      I am also changing careers and pursuing my dream - as you said you only live once. I am 28 so a little bit younger than yourself but I an still older than most, as I come to realise at Warsash open day. I am not overly concerned though and neither should you be. I spoke to a cadet that was in their early forties and he was really inspiring and put my nerves to rest.

      Good luck to you.

        Cheers matelot. I think you and I were at the same event! Did feel a bit crusty!
