What is a Cruise Job Fair?

A Cruise Job Fair is a popular event where many recruiters from cruise lines, recruitment agencies and concessions from around the world will come together in one place and each have a stand that you can visit.

If you decided to visit one of the job fairs, identify in advance which recruiters will be there on the day. You can find a list of all companies on the event website.

Cruise Job Fairs are usually very busy. Take your time to plan to visit every stand of a company that you would potentially like to find work with. You will find the information about who each company recruits in the Visitor Guide which you will receive when you arrive to the exhibition hall.

At a Cruise Job Fair you can meet the recruiters face to face to:

  • introduce yourself to the recruiter and present your Resume;
  • get valuable feedback on your Resume, qualifications and experience;
  •  discuss any suitable job opportunities that may be available;
  • ask questions about working for the company - working conditions, employer's expectations, job requirements, etc.
  • answer recruiter's questions;

Attending a Cruise Job Fair is a popular and effective way of finding a job on board a cruise ship and they take place across the UK, Europe and North America throughout the year. You can find all the event details and locations online:

Is attending a Cruise Ship Job worth it?

Don’t underestimate the power of a face-to-face meeting.

It is free to attend a job fair and they are very busy and popular events, so be prepared to wait in queues to speak to the recruiters from the most popular cruise lines and recruitment agencies.
