Ok so I'm now officially a Marine Engineer having made it through school in 4 years with a 3.0 GPA. I liked to have a couple beers when I started at the Academy and learned to like a few more during my Freshman year. I was just denied my 1st job due to my "Background" which consists of a DWAI and loss of my drivers license for a year during summer after the first year in school. How should I approach the next job opportunity/application? Am I going to be limited to a shore-side position going forward? How long will this follow me around? I truly learned my lesson after screwing up and attended a alcohol diversion program to help myself going forward. Any and all suggestions are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
