Working on a boat can be a particularly tempting prospect from a career standpoint. If you feel like you’re not fulfilling your potential in dry land and you love being out at sea, getting hired to be an on-board crew member may just be for you. It’s a fairly competitive field as well so don’t expect finding job on a boat to be a walk in the park. There are plenty of similarities between the world of those who walk on earth and those who bob to the waves at sea.
Once you’re asked for an interview, dress smartly and put your best foot forward. Interviews are all about selling yourself and showing your commitment to high standards and hard work. If you can prove to your potential boss that you have the skill set, the drive and the tenacity to hold a position in his ship, you will probably be hired.
