Jobs at MSC: Recruiting spotlight

Meet Rick Haviland, a member of Military Sealift Command’s field recruitment team responsible for recruiting and retaining our talented workforce. Recently, we had the chance to sit down with Rick, who has worked with MSC for seven years.

HavilandWhat is the best part of working with the MSC field recruitment team?  I enjoy working with the other well-trained recruiters and staff to fulfill the manning needs of the Command that keeps our Navy fueled and ready to go. The best part of my job is working with and assisting prospects from entry-level to Master in obtaining their highest possible USCG Merchant Mariner’s Credential endorsements, then walking them through the application process. When they get hired I love hearing ‘thank you for all your help, I was hired today!’ We are making a difference.

How do you apply your past skills and experiences to helping current CIVMARs and prospective MSC employees?  Before joining MSC I was a Navy Recruiter for three years and also an entrepreneur. Having those skills allows me to ask the right questions, guide prospects and develop a plan for meeting our manning goals.

Be sure to watch for future posts that will introduce you to more members of our team. You can always reach out to our team by attending a job fair or calling the CIVMAR Support Center at 866-562-7672. You can also email or post a message on our Facebook page.
