The Commercial Diver Network
I hate to stick a pin in your bubble, but my son graduated from DIT in Seattle. He has been in Louisiana and Texas for 5 weeks pounding the pavement and talking to every dive company he can find. So far, no luck. As Jerry earlier said, the school told us at the beginning that they have 85% of their students placed in jobs before they graduate, and at graduation time only 2 out of 27 in the class had jobs lined up. The oil spill in the gulf seems to have had a pretty devastating affect on the dive industry, too. Good luck to you!
As a Marine Corps Veteran I have learned there are only two people to trust in this business. God, and your dead buddies who you remember with honor. Im as old as Posidon, Dated his sister in grade school, Nearly drowned Neptune in 30000bc, and I taught Thor and Vulcan how to tame a blade.
Old school, if any of us have Pictures of Ace and Frank teaching Zuese to walk, yes my brother we are old school. We believe in life before and after profit our children's dreams and our right to see they are fulfilled. Its time for divers to get off their butts and re take the fields canals and ditches where we bleed for ADC member companies. Its time to lay the ADC to rest.
