Finding your first or next superyacht job can be a challenge. For many, the temptation is to walk the docks (which we admit can be effective), but you can’t be everywhere at once! Here we provide some tips/advice on finding your next superyacht job online.
Walking the docks (or dockwalking) in ports such as Barcelona, Antibes, Palma, etc. has been a “tried and tested” approach to landing superyacht crew jobs.
Dockwalking in reality though is tough, both physically and mentally, it requires endurance! Dockwalkers will face many rejections and possibly spend a lot of time and effort without any success.
These days, even getting near the yachts can be a challenge due to well-founded security concerns (e.g. terrorism).
Look online – you can only walk one dock at a time!
Even if you do decide to dockwalk, you can only be at one place at a time! So, going online is the natural answer, jobseekers gain access to superyacht job opportunities anywhere in the world at the touch of a button.
Use a recruitment website
With dockwalking you might find a job, but would it be the very best one for your talents, skills and experience? That’s highly doubtful! Whereas, a recruitment website (such as J4Crew) would have a large number of vacancies with filtering tools to choose the ideal job, in the ideal area that matches your skills set and salary/package aspirations.
Using a recruitment website is a “no brainer” really, which is why so many candidates find jobs online this way. Why not register with J4Crew today to view our latest vacancies?
Even better use a mobile app
If you can use a mobile app instead, this will give you access to superyacht job opportunities on the move at the touch of a button. Mobile apps are still online, access is through your mobile device rather than through a laptop/desktop. Well designed mobile apps should have all the content and job listings of a superyacht agency website.
