Your first job starts with how you behave in the Crew house

 

heartalone  First impressions:

 

Yachting is a small industry and believe it or not word about your behavior in the Crew house will get around to potential employers and agents.  If you are serious about finding a job it’s important that you show your professionalism from the beginning.

 

Additionally, getting up early to walk the the docks, meet agents and send CVs will land you a job much quicker than anyone else sleeping in or taking a “sick day” after a big night out.

 

heartaloneImportance of relations with Crew house owner/manager:

 

Often Crew house owners and managers were once Yachties themselves.  Even if they weren’t they will have connections with people in the industry.  If you are serious about finding work, build a good relationship with them and if appropriate even ask them to let you know if they hear of any daywork.

 

Many Captains and Heads of Departments call Crew house owners and managers to find dayworkers.  Be professional even when not looking for work and it will pay off.

 

heartaloneDaywork Drop In’s:

 

Many Heads of Departments will randomly stop by popular Crew houses looking for Dayworkers. They will ask for CVs or even hire who they think looks the most professional on the spot.

 

You will improve your chances of being hired by:

 

  • Having copies of your CV ready
  • Being awake and dressed appropriately at a reasonable hour
  • Looking fresh, not hungover
  • Treating anyone who stops over as a potential employer by speaking to them professionally and with a keen attitude
