The interview is very important for gaining successful employment so you should always be prepared. 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. But remember, the yacht industry is fast paced and a Captain might require you to speak immediately for an immediate opening.
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.
The Captain will also want to get a feel for your personality so make sure this comes across well. Always ask questions about the position and the yacht so you have a good understanding of what is involved.
