able bodied seaman tankerman resume example with 13 years of experience

(555) 432-1000,
, , 100 Montgomery St. 10th Floor

I have 9 years of offshore supply boat and escort tug experience. Ranging from Deckhand to Lead Rigger to Unlicensed Engineer to Tankerman. I've worked around, with and on some very large equipment including cranes, windlass, tuggers, engines, Z-drives and rudders. I've been the deck leader on large lift operations. I've done daily/weekly/monthly/yearly maintenance in the engine room, vessel interior and exterior. I've maintained engine room and deck log books and maintenance matrix.

Working offshore, building fences, my own home repairs and doing some home remodeling and log removal after the Hurricane Katrina will tell you I have no problem working outside.

Working at three large casinos over eights years as Waiter, a Slot Booth Cashier and Slot Attendant paying Jackpots in Biloxi and four years at Walmart as a Sales Associate let's you know I can deal with customers.

I am motived by hopefully finding my forever home (like they say with animals) with Hiab. I'll be working at the same place as two of my best friends and I'll be home way more than I've ever been offshore.

I am a worker. I like doing the job right. I like being on time. I like working for a good company who takes care of their people and Mike Knott and Mike Gulbrand have assured me that Hiab is the one.

Thank you for your time and consideration!!
