Crew Interview Tips

Things move quickly in the yachting industry. Many times, when a Captain is looking for crew, it is for an immediate start. That might mean tomorrow or even this afternoon. If a Captain calls you for an interview, be prepared that you might be asked to start right away. If you take too much time to think, you might miss the boat.

As in any interview, first impressions are extremely important. A neat appearance, professional manner, and positive attitude are key elements to securing a position aboard a yacht. Don’t wear flip flops or sunglasses or a bathing suit under your clothes. Every Captain/Owner is different, and every boat has a different style, but it is best not to take any chances. Make sure you are punctual and have turned your phone off. Listen to the Captain, and show that you are interested in the position by asking questions about the yacht, your duties, the crew, the itinerary, etc. Be honest about your skills and positive about the experience you have gained.

Above all remember to smile!
