Default How to get a Job?

I'll ask an over-asked question. How can I obtain employment on a cruise ship?

When you go to the bottom of a cruise line's website, you will see career oppotunities listed there...

You might also post over in the CrewMember's forum for some tips..

Being American, depending on the type of job your best chance is with NCL for the Pride of America. I know that they every so often do recruiting events around the country. That is how my grandson was hired by them. He is now on his second contract. Check your newspaper website and any major sites that post job listings. He found out about the recruiting online.

And as Trip said each line has a section on their website.

Good luck.

Hi

You might also want to try a recruitment agency. I applied to Seven Seas Group who were great and got me a job on Royal Caribbean. Just make sure you read loads of information online so you know what job you want to apply for, what the job entails and whether you think ship life is for you. Good luck!

Check out this guy's site: Work On Board Cruise Ships | Wandering Earl

While I was always quite skeptical of the online e-books, I took a chance on this one and overall I think it is worth it. There are resume examples, cover letters, info about the different lines, job descriptions, salary ranges, and more. But even more valuable is Earl's willingness to email with you and his very valuable advice.

I'm not at all related or invested in his project, but I think it's worth mentioning here that it is quite valuable.
