Marine Superintendent Resume

Marine superintendents are responsible for docking the vessels of the shipping line as per the orders, supervising the unloading and handling of cargo, performing maintenance work, hiring new employees, etc. They are the main caretakers of the shipping vessel who report any damages to the main crew and try to fix them. If it is not possible on board, whenever the ship docks next, the issues are reported to the dock personnel and necessary repairs are made to the ship.

It is normal for the marine superintendents to stay in the ships for long stretches of time and it depends on the company and the contract being made to decide for how long they are required to stay in the ships and provide their services. They usually handle teams of 5 (and above) personnel and manage the work according to the requirements and the captain's orders. They also need to be technically sound and be able to use the latest marine technologies used for the ships today. The nature of the job and responsibilities may vary according to different clients and organizations. One must be open to changes and be adaptive to the environment.

The applicant must have completed either a bachelor's degree in marine engineering or an equivalent degree in mechanical engineering to be eligible for the position of marine superintendent. A master's degree is not mandatory but advisable, as it would increase the chances of the applicant receiving a better compensation package. Along with this, the applicants having relevant experience are mostly preferred, so one must make sure that his/her educational qualifications and experience are indicated clearly and in detail.
