Over the years we’ve seen thousands of cruise ship job applications. Some were great, some okay and other were completely off the mark. This article describes the five of the most common mistakes cruise ship job recruiters see from cruise ship job seekers.
Applying for Multiple Positions with the Same Cruise Ship Job Application
Whether applying for a job on a large or small cruise line, be extremely specific regarding the exact position you are applying for – never apply for more than one job at a time.If you’re applying to be an Assistant Purser, then state that clearly at the top of your resume and on your cover letter. If you’re applying to work in Food & Beverage, then put down exactly what job you feel most suitable for in that department; whether that’s a waiter/waitress, a bartender, etc. We see far too many resumes going out that are just not clear enough about which cruise jobs are being applied for.
The most important point to get across to you here is that you must never to send a ‘general’ application.. You should never think that once a cruise ship recruiter has read your resume that they will find a position to fit your skills. They won’t. Not when they’ve got another 500 applications waiting to be reviewed.
