Thanks for the reply Maria,
I am crossing my fingers hoping we will be able to pull it off. I am not easily discouraged! My plan of attack was to sell us as a package to the cruise lines we send out our info to. Don't know if that will work, but spending any extended lenght of time away from each other is not an option. I figured we would concentrate on getting him a position and then get me on board the same ship since my experience is broader than his and can be applied to many different postions...speaking of, maybe you can advise me- Please read below-
So you are a purser.....woud you mind telling me a little about your position? There are many positions that I am intrested in, my experiece is very broad, ranging from being a cook, baker, bartender, server, event planer, catering manager and currently I manage the largest office coffee service in North America. My current position has me dealing with a client population of 9,000+, in mutiple locations and cities, responbilities heavy on excellent customer service, accounting, people management, distibution, inventory management, cost control.....it goes on....and on.... So you see my dilema- what positon should I really look into? I would prefer to stay in management, but I understand that since I do not have any previous experiece on a crise line or in hotels that I might have to start from the bottom. Would prefer not to go back to hourly for two reasons- I really like being my own boss and the pay is a factor as well.
Hope that wasn't too many questions. Appreciate any time you can give me.
