I’m going to a small liberal arts college next year, but I want to keep my career options open, even though I know my degree won’t be relevant at all. I recently came across the Workboat Academy program at PMI in Seattle. I have a few questions.
1. What is the Seattle Workboat Academy like? Is it a high quality program? How difficult is it to find internships? Also, would I feel super unwelcome if I attended it after getting a 4 year degree?
2. What is the status of the maritime industry in the Northwest/Alaska? I’d ideally like to work on a vessel that transits between Alaska and Washington. Would it be difficult to find a job.
3. How much of an issue is automation estimated to be?
