My son went to a NCLA job fair in July 2006 and got hired as a bellperson. He now knows that was a great entry level position. He thinks MAYBE he got the job since he already had a college degree. He spent one contract on the POAloha and enjoyed his job because he had regular hours and lots of time to get off the ship and explore. He got a big break when he was home waiting to go back for contract #2 he continued to apply for IT jobs (his college major) and the right person pulled his resume and made a call that got him his present job as assistant systems manager on the POAmerica - a huge promotion. He loves his job.
He said NCLA does like to promote from within - do a good job and they are always advertising openings on the ship that you can apply for.
