4. Applicant waits for companies to conduct campus recruitment or applies to companies on completion of the course.

Of the 2 methods described above which one is preferred?
The 1st method is preferred as you are employed by a company before having done the course, and you also have an assurance of a sea berth for completing your training. This is not the case with the 2nd method where you have to look for a job on completion of the course.
The on-board training berths are much fewer compared to the pre-sea training seats, hence if you do not have an assured sea berth you may even spend a year trying to get an employment with a shipping company.
In the 1st method you are classified as a sponsored cadet, in the second method you are an un-sponsored cadet.
