How did many candidates managed to work on cruise ships?
Anca and Laurentiu, two young people who recently completed their studies at the Faculty of Law, sent their CVs to us for a job on cruise ships. Obviously, after analysing the CV, finding that they have no professional experience, they were not invited to a pre-selection interview. They both came to our headquarters, asking us to give them a chance, to go together on a cruise ship.
It was difficult for us to accept this because the main selection criterion for participating in an
interview is the CV which must include relevant professional experience. I asked, “Why did you apply for a cruise ship job after graduating from college?” They answered us firmly: “we want a better life, to start a family. Here we have no chance to raise enough money to buy an apartment. In addition, no one hires us in our field because we do not have any professional experience.”
At that time, one of the cruise companies had asked us to recruit a very large number for the position of Waiter Help. I asked the two graduates if they would be interested in working on this position. They answered immediately that yes, and that they are willing to learn and even practice in order to participate in an interview.
I contacted the cruise company and asked for their consent to present at interviews candidates without experience or qualification in the field but who speak English well and have the right attitude, required by the hospitality industry and who participated in our training. This test project was approved by the cruise company and we immediately organised our first training with similar candidates with Anca and Laurentiu.
After completing the training, all candidates participated in interviews on skype. All passed the interviews and were accepted for further employment. Of course, it took a few months before I received a feedback from these candidates who managed to work on cruise ships. Our joy was when we started receiving messages of thanks from them, either on Facebook or by e-mail. At the same time, the company confessed to us that they did not receive any complaints from the cruise ships where our candidates without previous experience in the field were hired and who benefited from our training.
