Tips and tricks: How to Get Jobs in a Yachtie
Put together a resume for employment purposes.
The Best Facebook Groups for Yachters
Group forums on Facebook are a terrific feature these days. Join as many groups on Facebook as you can since jobs are always listed there. They’re also a terrific way to stay up to date on industry trends.
You may learn a lot about “How to Become a Yachtie” by joining one of these organisations.
Make sure to focus on organisations in the region where you are located. Boats like local personnel, therefore joining a Facebook group for crew located in Antibes is pointless if you live in Fort Lauderdale. No one will fly you out to the boat if you are fresh to the industry.
Make sure you don’t post anything idiotic or stupid in these communities, since greenies are often mocked for their incompetence. In the end, though, if you’re clever enough to put up a hilarious or imaginative job posting, it just could work in your favour:).
If you’re a crew looking for employment in South Florida, this is a wonderful place to look. You can publish your resume here and be considered for any of the open positions.
Make sure you’re up and ready to work by 8 a.m. if you publish your resume on our website. It’s possible that you’ll be contacted at any moment and asked to begin work immediately.
When it comes to yachting, the early bird gets the worm. It’s all about who can get to the dock earliest and get to work.
However, if you are permitted to work in the United States, I recommend this site. Illegal labourers have been targeted by immigration officials in the past, with some traps being put up. You don’t want to be found hunting for a job before you’ve even started your career.
5. Submit your resume to nearby boating hotspots
In order to land a job aboard a superyacht, you should head to South Florida, Antibes, or perhaps Palma de Mallorca. As I already stated, if you lack the necessary expertise, no one will fly you to the vessel.
Green crew can leave their CVs at the local yachting pub or uniform shop, no matter where the boat is docked. When searching for new employees, boat crews frequently visit this location.
Drop your resume off at Smallwoods, a crew uniform store in Fort Lauderdale, if you’re nearby. The Blue Lady, a yachting bar in Antibes, is a good place to post them.
Put a copy of your resume or business card in these locations. If you’re still looking for employment, keep an eye on it and go in and move it to the head of the queue. If you want a job, you need to be at the head of the queue.
