Today's Youth in Tomorrow's Sea. Another Title in the Series "Marine Careers."
Goodwin, Harold L.
A discussion of many career possibilities related to the sea is presented. The false impressions many people have about the sea and about marine careers are dispelled. Among the career areas examined are offshore industry careers such as oil and gas drilling, careers in fishing, in seafaring, marine recreation, oceanography, aquaculture, communications, ocean engineering, and other technical careers. There is an attempt not only to clarify the job responsibilities, duties, living conditions, and skills needed in these marine careers but also to dispell any false impressions of what such careers would be like. Also in the publication, discussions of where and how to get training and jobs in ocean related careers are given. A section is also included giving practical advice to young persons attempting to choose a career. (MR)
