Career Change...Thinking of a life onboard
Due to the financial institution that I work for being bought out by another financial institution earlier this week, I will most likely be out of a job by the end of the year. Facing this dilema I realized this is a great opportunity for a new adventure in my life.
After my 1st cruise 2 years ago, I felt like I had missed out on the amazing opportunity of life at sea. However with a stable job and a mortgage it seems somewhat irresponsible for me to put that all behind me and change gears. Now with the job part going away it seems foolish not to at least apply for jobs onboard.
I just turned 30 a few days ago. My degree is Broadcast Journalism, and I have been an administrative assistant for the last 7 years. I am very outgoing and love organizing events and being a social coordinator. I can be in front of a crowd (I am also a singer) but I also have a very administrative side. I would love to be part of the Social Staff/CD staff in whatever roll they will have me.
I have only cruised on Carnival however as I have been thinking through my options, Princess and HAL seem to be a better fit for employment (for me and what I am looking for). What are your experiences with these 2 lines? Are they responsive? Are the employee age demographics different than they would be for say Carnival?
Any advise is appreciated! I hope to start the process very soon since I am not sure how much longer I will have my job!
