Interview Advice

The interview is very important for gaining successful employment so you should always be prepared. 

Undertaking research and having questions on the shipping company, in which you are being interviewed for, will show significant interest in the job. Also thinking about you career aspirations and where you see yourself in 5-10 years time is good to have ready.

You should look professional and dress accordingly, as this first impression will really count. Being punctual to the interview is vital – if you cannot be available make sure you reschedule to a suitable time.

You should be enthusiastic and interested during the interview and explain your experience in good detail. Answer questions in an open manner explaining your skills which are relevant to the role. Be prepared for scenario questions and even written tests. These are quite common with large shipping companies.

We would certainly advise taking all relevant certificates and documents along to the interview so the cruise company can see the originals and take copies if need be.
