If you want to go into charter-skipper work, contact some of the big companies in the Virgin Islands.
But they may be looking for prior experience working under your license (congratulations on getting it, by the way) first. So you might want to start out teaching, maybe get your instructor certif. from ASA or USSA, then apply at one of the bigger sailing schools, like Steve Colgate's or J-World. Do well there, and you can get a reference for some other type of skippering, maybe on someone's yacht, or delivery work, or as a charter captain in the Bahamas or USVI.
Let us know how it goes, as it's a path I might want to take in retirement, whereas now I'm just teaching on weekends or evenings down south.
