Answering the Call of the Sea: Meet Third Officer Artem Malysh

The vast sea seems to bring out stories full of hard work, risk, and perseverance. Today, there is an opportunity to share one such story - that of Third Officer Artem Malysh. After six years in the industry, Artem's experience at sea has been quite an adventure.

The seed of a maritime career was planted in Artem's mind by his brother, an engineer and a seafarer. After school, faced with the daunting question - "what is next?" - Artem considered his brother's suggestion: the sea offered an appealing job with rewarding pay. Thus, armed with an open mind and a desire to learn, Artem set foot in the maritime industry.

Kick-starting a Seafaring Career: Artem's Early Years

Artem attended Maritime College, successfully graduating with honors. Yet, finding his first contract proved to be an uphill task. His initial success came courtesy of his college which secured his first contract on a small passenger carrier, followed by two contracts on general cargo. From one vessel to another, he continued to work and find better opportunities.

Taking Control: Artem's Search for Better Opportunities

The path to a successful seafaring career is not devoid of obstacles. As he gained experience, Artem was on a quest for a better job – one with a higher salary and improved work conditions. In his own words, without enough experience, it can be tough to find a company willing to hire. However, he also believes that relentless search always bears fruit.

The conflict in Ukraine added an additional layer of complexity to Artem's situation. Now a family man, he needed a job not just for himself, but to ensure a secure future for his family. Amid these pressures, Artem's perseverance saw him through.

Artem's continuous search for his next contract led him to Seafair. He found his experience with Seafair to be professionally fulfilling.
