I wish to pursue career in Merchant navy after B tech through GME course. Currently I am in 8th semester. I searched a lot about the course information and pros and cons of career in Merchant Navy. Even i read your one answer on "Quora" about Why not to join merchant navy. I too found many articles, confessions and blogs revealing the bitter truth of merchant navy which I would like to share:
I am quite disappointed after reading these all. Also if i would be pursuing this GME course, then that will be on bank loan only. After passing out the course with huge debt on head , will make my life hell. So here are few questions which I want to ask.
Are the students not getting placed in the institutes ? or if a student who has got the sponsorship (for GME course) will suffer the same..? if a student gets a sponsorship, does it mean he has a job surety ? If there are no more jobs then what will happen to those who are currently pursuing the courses like GME, or marine engg. in DG Approved Institutes ?
Actually i had strong desire to join Merchant Navy after btech but after reading these all, i am confused about whether to go for it or not..?
dont join . no jobs.
Sir, I have been selected in Anglo Eastern for the GME course... so should I go for it.?
