Seven Tips To Create A Winning Yacht Crew CV:

🌊A yacht crew CV is your personal marketing brochure. It’s the gateway to your future and provides a shop window to showcase what you have to offer to potential employers.

📝 The basics - Remember that first impressions count. Make your CV easy on the eye.
📝 Smile please - You should be smiling in your photo, avoid photos taken during social occasions.
📝 Professional Experience & Qualifications - If you already have yachting experience, list start and finish dates, the size, and name of the yachts, your job title, and the exact nature of your duties.
📝 Capabilities & Goals - List what you can offer and how you can add value to the employer.
📝Personal Interests / Hobbies - List your interests and hobbies to show that you’re a rounded and social person.
📝References - Include up to three references that can be contacted by future employers.
📝Show off your hard work - Once you’ve polished your yacht crew CV, you’re ready to apply for yacht jobs.
