I really want to get some work on cruise ships over this summer and I have been searching the internet high and low the whole day and feel even more confussed now then before I started.
Firstly what I do know is that I have to apply with an agency first and they help sort out your resume, advise you on the jobs you can apply for and put you in touch with a range of employers.
All of the agencies I have come across online though you have to pay for before you actually get a job. Surely that makes no sense and if you dont get a job you lose that money? Can anybody advise me on an agency to sign up to here in the UK for free or when I get the job I pay an agency fee? Am i making sense?
Any other advice anybody else can pass on would be great too. I don't know anybody who has ever done this before so could use all the help i can get really.
Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry I beleive I phrased it wrong in my original post. I am aware that contracts are 6 months or longer. I was trying to say that I wish to start by this summer. See I work at an indoor ski slope in the UK and its great but I dont wanna be spending all summer couped up inside not enjoying the beautiful weather. You know what I mean? Any adivce you can give about how to get my foot in the door would be brilliant! Thanks for reposting my message elsewhere too, I really appreciate it.
