I was wondering if the men and woman who have worked or still do work on any cruise ship if they would tell us how you got your foot in the door.Where did you start.I am very interested in working on a ship.thanks
I actually have been hired for a seasonal youth counselor on NCLA (which sails in Hawaii). I went to a job fair in a city nearby where I live (about 2 1/2 hours away. They were doing on the spot interviews, and I was given a conditional offer of employment that day. However, the hiring process does involve a lot of steps and is somewhat lengthy. Right now I'm on an active hold until they need someone to fill the youth counselor position.
My advice is to tailor your resume to show your experience to the position you are wanting. This really does help when looking to get into working on a cruise ship- because interviewers are looking for individuals that have some type of experience in the area they are applying for. Also if you can make a direct contact- not just apply or send your resume via e mail that's even better!
