At McAllister Towing, before applying for a position, we recommend applying for a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC).
After receiving your TWIC, you must obtain a Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC) through the National Maritime Center (NMC) by submitting your application to the nearest of 19 Regional Exam Centers (REC). The REC will forward your application to NMC for evaluation. Once your application is approved, your MMC will be printed and mailed to you by NMC. With these credentials, you are now prepared to embark upon an exciting and fulfilling career in the maritime industry.
Navigating these opportunities can be challenging to determine which Maritime sector/position is the best fit for you. Give yourself an honest assessment on your strengths and weaknesses as well as what you are seeking for your career. Some desirable traits that I am looking for in candidates at McAllister Towing are leadership, teamwork, and effective communication.
I find that these traits often translate to longevity and success in the maritime industry.
