I wonder if anyone else has noticed the jump in commercial shipbroking and chartering jobs recently? If you surf the job section of my website this is fairly self evident.
The word on the ground certainly backs this up.
A few months ago there was lots of fear within the shipping community. Firms culled employees and implemented hiring and wage freezes.
But the good news is that the economic landscape seems to have changed (for the good). The worlds governments went 'stimulus crazy' and now all major markets have staged some sort of recovery.
Firms are hiring, no one is firing and people are jumping ship for better paid positions.
Smooth seas ahead they yell! But for how long no one really knows?
Good luck to the job hunters!
