Default want to get a position of purser

Hi everybody. Iím willing to apply for a position of purser.

I must say that Iíve already had experience of working on a cruise ship (November 2003 Ė June 2004) with Carnival Cruise Lines. But because I didnít see any opportunity of changing department and professional growth I had to quit. I applied through an agency in the Ukraine, where I live, and at the time only position of Hotel Steward was available. So I decided to go for it, especially because I was told that changing department is possible and in fact not so difficult. In reality it turned out practically impossible Ė especially in my department.

I have a good command of English, speak German and Russian. And I feel that the position of purser is really what I'm fit for. I'm sure -wher's the will ther's the way. If someone has encountered this problem (change dept.) or simply knows how to get a position of purser - please reply at this forum or mail me. I'd really appreciate it. Bye -bye.

Do basically just what you did before. Contact the Cruiselines and put in your resume and wait. They all have websites with info on where to send it and/or who to contact.

I worked on the Pride. What ship were you on? Being a purser is hard, but I can send you more info for other lines. Email me and I'll send the info out asap.

Sarah come on...you are making it sound like we work for the devil

Being a Purser is great...as long you can cope with things.

Keeping a float is easy, just take your time, this is my 4th contract as a Purser. I am now a 3rd and I have seen peoples floats be down and they have NEVER been accused of stealing it. That is a lie!!

Good look becoming a Purser...maybe I will see you soon!!
