Today, we are pleased to unveil the Women Offshore Podcast! Our first episode is about career development and job-seeking on the water!

Here at Women Offshore, we have often wondered: how else can we reach women on the water around the world? In addition, to the articles on our website and posts on our social media platforms, we have now launched the Women Offshore Podcast, starting with our first episode about career advancement and job seeking. Future episodes will include sea stories from seafarers, and cover topics, such as working offshore as a mom and the #metoo movement – you won’t want to miss out.

You May Be Wondering, “What’s A Podcast?”

Perhaps you have never listened to a Podcast before – that’s okay! Podcasts are a form of audio broadcasts on the Internet. The name derives from the words “iPod” and “broadcast.” iPod is in the name because, before smart phones, people downloaded audio shows on iPods (sounds archaic, right?). Since the advent of the smart phone, podcasts are available in various smartphone apps, such as the iTunes Podcast app.

Sheila holds a USCG Unlimited Masters License and has 7 years of shipping experience onboard tankers, tugs, break bulk, and multi-product vessels.

Since coming shore-side in 2009, Sheila spent her career working as one of the most successful maritime recruiters in the field. Sheila has coached hundreds of industry professionals in taking their careers to new heights.

In 2017, Sheila went out on her own to launch Job Propeller, offering resume writing services for maritime industry professionals. You may recall that Women Offshore featured Job Propeller last year. 

At Job Propeller, Sheila’s candidates have been securing interviews by effectively translating their experience into a targeted and well-crafted resume.  Sheila has perfected the art of making the right information stand out to HR recruiters and hiring managers.

In 2018, Sheila launched an additional service though Job Propeller, offering third party recruitment and HR consulting for maritime industry employers.  Job Propeller works closely with numerous maritime companies to identify the right candidates for their open positions.  Sheila is an expert when it comes to matching people with opportunity. Sheila is passionate about helping maritime industry professionals excel in their careers and equipping companies to grow stronger with the right people on board.

Today, on the Women Offshore Podcast, Episode 1, Sheila offers some tips and tricks to take control of the job search. How can one stand out in the sea of applicants? What can be done to prepare for a job interview? Should thank you letters be hand-written or sent in an email? Sheila has the answers to take your job-seeking process to a new level!
