Changing professions is never an easy task. A doctor with all her degrees cannot decide to become a Carpenter, one fine day. But for Seafarers it is even more challenging and that is for Four Major Reasons. They are as Follows:

1. Learned Helplessness: Sometimes prolonged life in the sea makes a sailor more prone to depression and they tend to lose personal drive to do anything different in life.

2. Progression & Promotion: The promotion from ratings to the ranks is different in different countries and in-between the processes and the evaluations some sailors get stuck for a really long time.

3. Lack of Proper Qualification: Marine related professions and education are so specific that it is very difficult for a sailor to apply those knowledge and certificates for applying to other kind of jobs.

4. Lack of Opportunity: Seamen are also mostly away from the interview and recruitment circle. So any news of possible alternatives doesn't really pop out to them.
