Rookie going to aboard on Carnival ship,want tips about job
I got a position on a ship, but I have two questions
1. Will this job take too much time and drive me away from have my own fun(travel the port when docked, join club, drink,etc)
Here is the job description
FOR MARKETING AND SALES REPRESENTATIVES
1.Operate the ***** desk - port days hours usually from 4pm-7pm & 9pm-11pm, Sea Days 10am - 12pm, 2-5, 9-11 depending on ship. This consists of manning the desk during the hours stated and talking to guest as they pass by.
2. Twice during the cruise they will place brochures in housekeeping for cabin placement.
3 you will process applications from the computer for online enrollment and approval. This takes about 4 min to process.
4.you will be responsible for sending in various reports to the office on a daily and weekly basis.
However, My friend's friennd, who is work in this area, told me" most likely you would be in a cubical processing credit card transactions away from the public unless he trains to become a Purser or a Tour Guide Salesman"
I am a "Congregation animal", afraid to be isolated.......
So, anyone could tell me the perspective of this job?
2. I pay over 500USD to the agent for this job,is it too much?
whatever, working on a ship must be exsiting...... :-)
Also, I plan to burn some TV seris into DVD, any advisor? which should I choose, prison break?/sex and city?/(I don't know which in popular on ship, I want to take them to share with crew)
Congratulations to you on your new adventure! I don't know what the percentage is but in my opinion there's a good number of Asian men and women crew on board all of the Carnival vessels. Most of them are from India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines. Good luck and have fun!
There are several popular series running on US t.v. these days. They include:
and the list goes on and on, ad nauseum!
Most series run for at least 6 months if not the whole school year time frame (Sept-May). Many are already out on DVD from the previous seasons.
Good luck in your newest endeavors! And yes, I have seen many, many Asians onboard. Go w/ on open mind on relationships though. Go for the job and if a relationship happens, be happy. If it doesn't happen, still be happy! You are working in an amazing industry and will have all kinds of experiences (hopefully more good than bad) to recount in your future.
Blessings and congrats to you in this!
