Improving skills for the first contract-HELP! :D

Hello everyone.

I am a, rather successful (I hope ) student of Szczecin Maritime Academy (Poland - 2nd year) - Engineering Department. I am already making some preparations for a long, half-year training at sea. The main problem, and a very important question for all of you is, how to improve my chances of getting a good contract with a prestigious ship owner/company (BP for example )? In terms of English I donít have any major problems with grammar, as I passed my CAE exams in high school and the only thing I'm working on is my SMCP and typical maritime vocabulary.

The only idea I managed to come up with is to pass the Maritime English Certificate Exams on a at least 3/e level (while still being a second year student hoping to get a nice, few months engine cadet contract), so my future employer may be positively surprised by my good English, but what else can I do to make my CV more attractive??

Can't help with the question, but I'll tell you that your English is better than many people for whom English is thier first language. Good luck with your search! - r
