Diver

Divers are professionals who are certified and paid to go underwater. They may work close to shore, out at sea, in lakes or in rivers. Many diving jobs are related to underwater construction work, which requires more than just diving skills. However, professional divers may find themselves rescuing property from wrecked ships, gathering seafood for a commercial fishing company, working with the police, dive instructing, or doing exploration work. And, a commercial diver’s equipment will vary depending on the type of work they are doing.

In order to be a successful diver, you need to be the sort of person who is able to work under stressful conditions. You also need to be physically fit, a good swimmer and have a high stamina. Divers also tend to work in teams, so you will need to be able to work well with others.
