Default Just got rehired

After an interview with princess cruiselines in November I still have'nt received any response in regards to the outcome of that interview. After countless contacts with the head office and direct contact with the recruitment director still nothing.So I gave up because the message that I got is that I'm proberbly not good enough for the position I applied for.I am now however been hired by RCCL as a Purser and will be starting in Feb.I only contacted them 2 weeks ago.So I am looking foward to return to RCCL.I think it's the best cruisline to work for at the moment when you take into concederation the Pay and crew morals onboard.Can't wait for a good bit of sunshine.

Joe

Good for you - go with the sure thing. Sounds like Princess missed the fact that you were a seasoned professional, and you probably got lost in the shuffle of people who are just out of school.

One thing I learned is that you have to make you experience VISIBLE.

if you are very experienced, and you want to contact a new cruise line, send a letter to the correct person, and on the outside write something like "qualified [jobtitle], 2 yrs experience with [cruiseline] looking for new position"

That way they open it up for sure. I have worked on three cruise lines and I got the second two by enphasizing my experience. For my final contract with HAL, I had been on a line I did not like very much, but I did a smashup job, and then got references and testimonials from the people I worked with and sent it to a better (for my job) cruise line. I made sure they not only knew I had experience, but that I did a great job.

BY THE WAY - IF YOU ARE NOT EXPERIENCED AND YOU TRY THIS TRICK, EXPECT TO NEVER BE HIRED BECAUSE YOU HAVE ALREADY LIED TO THEM.
