Yachting is a highly competitive industry. When a Captain puts out a request for a new crew member they often receive over 15 CVs for that one position. So think of your yachting CV as your first line of defense against the others – a way of showing you are the best fit for the role before they have even met you.
Your resume should be an advertisement for yourself, showing the Captain why you are most qualified and what you bring to the table. But it’s about more than just the content, with formatting and image selection a big part of what takes your resume from zero to hero. Below, we look at how to create a kick-ass yacht crew CV to get your dream job.
