What basics should I follow?
You can follow five rules:
– CV’s should be no longer than two pages
– Keep font size between 10-12
– Don’t have significant gaps – if your CV is only 1 page, that’s fine!
– Save it as a .doc if you are using a Mac & always send your CV as a PDF to boats & .doc to crew, agents,

¿What personal information should I put in my CV?
You can list the information in the top left corner with a photo in the top right. Listing the following:

– Telephone Number
– Email Address
– Date of Birth
– Nationality & visas held
*Include expiry dates for your passport(s) & visas
– Current Location
*BE HONEST If you are shortlisted because you say you’re in Antibes when you are actually in Cape Town – then you are already misleading the vessel
– Health
*For example: “Excellent, No Tattoos, Non-Smoker.”

And… what do I do with the photo?
The photo is a topic that will probably be debated until the end of time! However, we recommend:
– White fitted polo shirt
– Crop the image, chest it
– Have your hair neatly pulled back. It HAS to look tidy
– Professional and classy makeup
*Less is more & don’t overdo it
– Smile!! I want to see your smiley face!
– Do not take a selfie
