Transcript

  • 1. WORKING ON A CRUISE SHIP Learn about cruise line employment, both ship- and land-based jobs in the U.S. and worldwide. www.CruiseShipJobsNetwork.com
  • 2. THE CRUISE INDUSTRY <ul><li>CruiseShipJobsNetwork (CSJN) is a leading source of information about cruise ship jobs . </li></ul><ul><li>The largest cruise ships employ hundreds of staff in a wide variety of positions. Furthermore, cruise lines hire people to work in their corporate offices and for land-based jobs too. </li></ul><ul><li>Major cruise lines sail year-round. But there are many seasonal cruise jobs too. Those looking for a summer job might find one with a company operating in Alaska. </li></ul><ul><li>Cruise lines fill jobs through direct hires, but also use concessionaires and staffing agencies to fill needs. </li></ul>
  • 3. ONGOING HIRING NEEDS <ul><li>Approximately 20 new cruise ships have launched in 2007 and 2008. Each has a crew of several hundred to over 1,000. </li></ul><ul><li>Most major cruise lines recruit staff all over the world: the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Brazil…So working on a cruise ship is often a genuine international experience. </li></ul><ul><li>Concessionaires are often used to fill positions in cruise ship spas, casinos, and gift shops. Onboard photographers and golf instructors are also provided by concessionaires. </li></ul><ul><li>Alaska tourism is fueled by the cruise industry from May to October. Cruise lines often hire seasonal staff for Alaska jobs – both land- and ship-based. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition to jobs on large luxury liners one should consider positions aboard smaller, eco-cruise ships. </li></ul><ul><li>Working on a smaller ship usually means a greater, less specialized list of responsibilities. </li></ul>
  • 4. CRUISE JOBS: LIKE THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY <ul><li>Did you know that many jobs on a cruise ship are just like those in a hotel? The ship’s hospitality department might be hiring for these positions: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Housekeeping, food and beverage services, hotel administration, information systems, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>So, your chances of landing a cruise hotel job will be enhanced if you have hospitality industry experience. </li></ul><ul><li>And education in hotel administration won’t hurt </li></ul>
  • 5. TYPES OF CRUISE LINE JOBS <ul><li>The largest cruise lines recruit internationally for: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hotel and spa staff </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Chefs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cruise Ship Entertainers (singers, dancers, musicians, magicians, etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Officers </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All cruise lines are recruiting engineers and deckhands – maritime industry positions. </li></ul><ul><li>Other positions could include naturalists, child care specialists, pursers, tour guides, nurses and physicians. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, a cruise line’s corporate office also has extraordinary needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Learn more about positions on CruiseShipJobsNetwork. </li></ul>
  • 6. YACHT CREWING <ul><li>The opportunities are fewer, for sure, but yacht crewing jobs should be appealing to people who like to be at sea. </li></ul><ul><li>Jobs on a yacht are often short term / seasonal. Owners and staffing agencies often seek engineers, deckhands, mates, cooks, servers, and stewards. </li></ul><ul><li>It helps to be service oriented and multi-talented. An outgoing personality may or may not be a plus. </li></ul>
  • 7. RELATED: JOBS AT BEACH RESORTS <ul><li>If you can’t seem to get hired on a cruise ship or have had your fill of those jobs, then consider applying for resort jobs . </li></ul><ul><li>As previously pointed out, the cruise and hotel/resort industries have similar hiring needs: food service, bartenders, spa staff, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>There are hundreds of resorts located all over the world. While the daily work might not always be that rewarding, the extracurricular benefits might be a draw. Resort staff often enjoy benefits like: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Discounts on golf, tennis, diving, fishing charters, spa services, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Incredible nightlife options </li></ul></ul>
  • 8. LEARN MORE <ul><li>Working on a cruise ship could be an unforgettable experience of a lifetime, even if it’s a summer job in Alaska vs. a year-round position on a luxury liner! </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t forget to look into cruise line concessionaires as they actually have ongoing needs. Get your resume into their systems. </li></ul><ul><li>If your resume is not quite perfect, then try getting experience in the hospitality industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Get free information about working for a cruise line on CruiseShipJobsNetwork. </li></ul>
