Here are a few tips to get you going and to get you on the short list, once we enable search capabilities for the Hire Crew initiative! Complete a full registration and review your Profile page (to make sure it's awesome), because this is what your new Captain or Head of Department will see!
- Photos: a smile and a plain background go a long way! Head & shoulders with a yachting uniform (or collared polo shirt), this photo is your absolute FIRST impression. Take the time to get it right! If you think your photo is awesome, someone else will too :)
- Career Objectives: Get to the point within your first couple of sentences! 'I love the sea' and 'I love boats' won't land you a position. 'Searching for a Deck/Stew position on a private or charter M/Y or S/Y 100 - 150'. With two seasons of experience, I'm looking for a friendly crew and a strong leader with whom to grow.' - straight forward, to the point, no fluff.
- Yachting Experiences: Uploading more than one yachting experience will make your Profile page work like a resume. And we will have search capabilities that can find out on what sizes of yachts you've worked! We don't ask you to upload your information for nothing - yes it's already on your resume - now it's searchable!
