CAREER support: propel your career offshore

Women Offshore’s Career support Programs Emerges Women into Meaningful Careers in the Maritime & Offshore Industries.



Women Offshore is seeking motivated women+ to submit their application for our Career Development Program.

Currently open to US citizens, the Women Offshore Foundation Career Development Program will take applicants through a 1-month personal development series that will ask tough questions to determine suitability for an exciting career in the maritime or offshore industries.

Once accepted into the program, candidates will build a roadmap to success with our program coordinator. The program will cover costs associated with obtaining entry-level credentials.

While this program is only open to US citizens currently, the Women Offshore Foundation is looking to expand the program to recruit and support women+ careers in other countries.
