Working offshore - This is how you do it.

You must have heard it before, but what exactly does offshore mean? Working offshore literally means working off the shore. By offshore work, you should think of anything that takes place at sea. Whether you work on a cruise ship, repair an oil rig or pilot a submarine, you all work offshore. Most offshore workers arrive at their workplace by helicopter or boat and are brought home after two weeks.

What kind of jobs should I think of when I think of offshore?

Working offshore can come in many different positions. On an oil rig as an example, there are ample opportunities. Technical personnel are needed to operate, maintain and repair machinery and tools. Examples include engineers, mechanics and electricians. But pipefitters, ironworkers and welders are also needed at sea. In short, there are many job opportunities in the offshore sector.
