This is what a #CareerAtSea looks like

In honour of yesterday’s international Day of the Seafarer celebration, the International Maritime Organization asked us to share with the world what a career at sea looks like. Day of the Seafarer is an official United Nations observance held each year on June 25th in honor of the world’s 1.5 million seafarers and the contributions they make in the name of world trade and development. This year, the IMO selected the theme maritime training as part of an effort to draw more young people towards a career at sea. The IMO is hoping the campaign shows how the multi-faceted maritime world offers rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore. To participate, the IMO asked that people head to social media and share their experiences using the campaign hashtag #CareerAtSea.
