So........I'm graduating dive school in 4 weeks. I love the choice i've made to pursue a career in commercial diving. I may actually be more comfortable under water than I am topside. I live in NJ and would love to find work in the NY/NJ area. From what I gather there is not a wh*** lot of work to speak of due to the condition of this fabulous economy. I would love a shot at the NY dock builders union 1456, but due to the lack of work I don't know if it's even possible to get in. I'm chopping at the bit to get working regardless. After 5 months of school, i need to get back to work badly!!! I would love some feed back and advice from anyone working in the area. Thanks a lot.
