No matter if you are in a pinch looking for a two-month slot, or seeking the right permanent position, it is hard to go wrong when Captain Kelly Sweeney has your back.
I met Kelly when I was taking my STCW class. He told me he could find me a job cooking. The problem is, I was in my 40's, and had never worked on a ship before. Everywhere I applied nobody would give me a chance. But Kelly worked with me throughout the year, and not only did he help me get a job, but I truly believe the job he helped me get, was the best possible job for a person like me.
I was new in the merchant marine industry having just received my AB ticket, and while jobs were tough to find I called Kelly Sweeney and with his prompt assistance I was able to secure a position aboard a high respected ship. He handled everything very professionally and was always friendly and supportive throughout the process. I would highly recommend Sweeney's headhunter services to other mariners at any level.
I have used Capt. Sweeney's service twice now. His fees are very reasonable and I never have to wait more than a few days for him to contact me with an open position. I am extremely pleased with Capt. Sweeney and the service he has provided for me!
Captain Kelly was quite helpful to me in finding a new job. Kelly was very responsive, and actually found me two positions to choose from within the first week.
Captain Sweeney has for a long time been and is a fulcrum into the maritime industry. Working with him has presented priceless opportunities for me; opportunities where I could develop, grow and thrive as a merchant mariner. And he will keep you busy!
Kelly Sweeney is a great person. He has helped me out with finding a job quick. He has helped me ship out with one company so far and I have been satisfied with It. He is a good guy and he is trustworthy and he is willing to help anyone that needs help finding a job.
In as much as Capt. Kelly Sweeney, of MARITIME HEADHUNTERS is concerned with regards to a total package of clear, honest, and fair representation he is just that. His wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience in the maritime industry is without comparison. I would highly recommend his service without hesitation to anyone new or already established to plot a clear course to him to steer your course to a credible career.
To the Mariner looking for a job, this is my no BS testimony as to Capt. Sweeney's professional attitude and integrity in his ability to find the right job with your credentials. His knowledge of the maritime companies and contacts are second to none, which gives him the ability to find the right job for you. He found 2 jobs for me the same day I called him, so now I'm sailing for a world-class institute on a global class research ship. Give Capt. Sweeney a call or an email at Maritime Headhunters LLC.
Thank you, Capt. Kelly.
The next day, I got a phone call from Capt. Kelley Sweeney himself! He had a couple of jobs that were open, fit my time frame and were exactly in the line of work I was looking for. I picked the one that sounded best, did the job and got back home with absolutely no hitches or surprises. Capt. Sweeney definitely has a good network for finding mariners the work they need - I've been sailing on towing vessels all over North America for well over a decade so I have a pretty good idea where to look and both the jobs he had available were ones that I never would have found on my own. I would absolutely recommend Maritime Headhunters as your first choice.
I contacted Captain Sweeney through an email and he was quick to respond. It was also no time before he called me with possible work. He called frequently and backed me up through the entire process, even helping negotiate my wage, and didn't stop checking with me till I was sailing. I felt more like it was a friend who'd gotten me a job than a headhunter. The cost was more than fair, and he even checked with me before cashing a check. I've kept in touch and he's given me good, sound advice since then, even while working. If I need a job again some time, he's the FIRST person I'll call, and would recommend his quality services to anyone. What a bargain!
I decided to try Captain Sweeney's Maritime Headhunters, and aside from being treated with courteous, professional, and highly personalized service, I also got a job. Kelly will work with you one on one till you are a working member of the maritime community. I would recommend this service to anyone searching for a great job in the maritime community.
Capt. Sweeney is the man to know if you're seeking employment in the maritime industry. He works fast and landed me a job within a week. Capt. Sweeney is also one of the nicest people you will ever talk to and has a true passion for the maritime industry.
Captain Kelly Sweeney steps up to the gangway. I can tell you, he will find you that job that fits your needs and skills. Captain Sweeney is well known by employers and they know they can turn to him for qualified and skilled mariners like myself. Captain Sweeney is very easy to talk to and understands what we go through. Captain Sweeney found me my perfect job, that fits my skills and type of vessel that suits me best. I have nothing but the best to say for the man. So this is for all of you people who may be skeptical about going through a headhunter, as a last ditch effort to find work. In this time and age, job opportunities are thin and employers have their pick of the litter, not like 10 years ago when things were the other way around. So with that in mind Captain Kelly Sweeney is the way.
Thank You Captain Kelly Sweeney, for all your time and effort on my behalf.
